Advent Day 17: The Red Slope

2015-12-17 16.26.23

ABV: 8.5%

The Red Slope Imperial Red Ale by Remmarlöv Gårdsbryggeri has a large white head that lasted a little while before dying down and a reddish amber colour to the body. The aroma is a massive hit of fruit with some citrus and melon and hints of berries in it. The flavour is sweet with a powerful astringent bitterness in the end that lingers. The body is medium and the carbonation is medium-high.

Rating: 3 / 5 – Disappointed by this one, the aroma is fantastic but the bitterness is very unpleasant and clashes with the sweetness too much instead of balancing it. Also disappointed by how not-red the colour is.
