Beers on Tap
Sweet caramel malts and hops go head to head for control of this imperial Red Ale. The hops bring flavors and aromas of pine, passion fruit, peach, mango and citrus. The malts fall short and leave the sweet caramel as just an afterthought. Welcome to hop heaven.
Delicate malt base with a punch of citrus fruits, lemon zest, and pine.
A crisp, approachable, no BS beer. Whether you are cautiously exploring the depths of craft beer, or simply looking for a refreshing reward to top off the day, this beer won’t do you wrong. Slightly malty sweet with a crisp carbonated finish.
