  • Mood:

Pale Ale ~ Red Brick

Appearance: copper and red apple skins. Perfectly clear though unattractively dull. Minimal to no head, leaving a bubbly thin collar. Swirls slightly thicker along edges; no lace, no head.

Nose: mild. Apple orchards, bread crusts, pear orchards. Husked grains. Dried orange peel. Hint of caramel and Werthers Original. Mild.

Palate: clean and crisp. Apple skins in the back of each swallow. Bitter orange and lemon peel. Hay, straw and bread crust underneath. Starts to grow a hard disruptive bitterness. Light mouthfeel and minimal weight. Mostly concentrated in the back of swallow with a mild front and middle.

Final Thoughts: I am so glad that I tasted the Blonde before the Pale Ale. What a difference. But I shall not stop trying Red Brick beers because it is gems like the afore mentioned Blonde. As for the Pale Ale, it barely even managed average.
