BREWVIEW ON STU BREW’S RED BRICK AMBER ALE

Originally published in September 2017, this BrewView on STU BREW’S Red Brick Amber Ale was the third of 4 BrewViews for them. Their website states that this beer is occasionally brewed, also considered a seasonal beer.

STYLE: British Amber Ale. ABV 4.8%.

APPEARANCE: Medium amber color, with a dense, 2-3 finger height slightly off-white colored head. Even-sheeted lacing on the sides of the glass as the beer is consumed.

AROMA: Amber malt sweetness, with some floral Chinook and Cascade hop aromas with classic British diacetyl notes.

FLAVOR: Some spice, light biscuity toasted flavors. Hop bitterness is very wall balanced. Once again, classic British diacetyl flavors compliment without overpowering the malt-hop profile.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied, light carbonation, roasty, toasty, hoppy finish. The finish lingers gently.

IMPRESSION: Another classic British Amber ale. Very sessionable. Reminded me of the Amber ales from the 80’s.
