Name – Big Red
Country – United States
Type – American Red Ale
Appearance – Pours a very clear reddish/amber color with a nice big white head that leaves some lacing on the glass.
Smell – Strong caramel malt smell along with a resiny and citrus like hop presence.
Taste – Very well balanced with your citrus hops and caramel like malts.
I’ll be honest that I was hoping for more of a hop bomb on this one but was very happy with the way that it really was. It’s very well balanced with the sweetness of the malts and the citrus and bitterness of the hops. A very good red ale in my opinion.
Overall Grade – B+
