Railbender Ale

Name – Railbender Ale
Country – United States
Type – Scotch Ale

Appearance – Poured a very clear red color with a big bubbly white head.  The foam was gone pretty quick with really no lacing.

Smell – The aroma is pretty weak.  I am getting some malts here but not a whole lot else.

Taste – Sweet caramel malts with a little bit of a grain taste in there as well.  Some notes of cherry as well.

I was excited when I picked this one up in Fort Pierce but have to say I’m disappointed after trying it.  It falls flat for a traditional Scotch ale.  Everything seems only barely there in smell and taste.  I guess if you are wanting to try your first Scotch ale this may be a good one for starters because it is pretty much toned down by all accounts from some of the really good ones I have had in the style.  Sorry Erie, this one just wasn’t for me.  Here’s to hoping I can get a bottle of Drake’s Crude from Erie because that is great beer by them.

Overall Grade – C
