Lumberyard Brewing Company Red Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Lumberyard Brewing Company Red Ale. Here’s another beer that I got while in Phoenix, AZ. On a trip to Sedona, AZ my wife and I took a trip up to the Grand Canyon and on our return trip we stopped at Lumberyard Brewing Company for dinner and beer. I enjoyed their Imperial Red and Trippel on this trip and am happy to review their Red Ale tonight.
From the Lumberyard Brewing Company website: “This handsome amber ale is created by balancing a selection of crystal and caramel malts, moderately hopped, resulting in a rich full bodied satisfying brew. Most well received, well balanced, and flavorful ale to the public.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a bright copper color with nice off-white head and decent lacing.
Aroma: Caramel and roasted malt, toffee and a slight scent of citrus and pine hops.
Taste: Sweet caramel and toasted malts, toffee balanced well with citrus and pine hops.
Overall: Lumberyard Brewing Company Red Ale is an enjoyable Red Ale. At 5.8% ABV if you are a fan of the style it is worth a try.
