Review - Casco Bay Brewing Co's Riptide Red Ale
"Our flagship, this Irish-Style Red Ale proudly won a gold medal at the 2000 World Beer Cup. A combination of 5 different malts and 3 hop varietals, carefully blended, results in a perfect balance. Full-flavored and medium-bodied, the Riptide Red provides surprising complexity for such an easy-drinking brew. The Riptide Red has an original gravity of 1.056 and a 5.4% ABV." -- Casco Bay Brewing
This Irish red pours a light amber/brown color with a fizzy, light-brown head. Good lacing behind a mostly diminishing head, with a flat, clear body. Aroma is of light roasted malts, and a light, doughy yeast scent. Initial taste is moderately bitter, mellowing to a light bitter finish, with an average duration on the mouth. Light on the palate, consistency is watery with soft carbonation.
