The Third Beer o' Xmas 2012: Red as Hell Ale

For the Fourth Beer o' Xmas that the Beer Gnerd pushed on thee, we have Radio From Hell's Red as Hell Ale. Can't have a Xmas themed "anything" without something red, right? And this English style red will do nicely.

Pours a deep clear amber color with a short finger of tan foamy head. The nose is of caramel and a bit nutty. The taste starts with caramel and toffee with an earthy/grainy, nuttiness rounding out the middle. A mild floral/earthy hop presence brings up the end, balancing things off really well. This is an nice English style ale with just a hint of American influence. Quite tasty!

Cheers!
