Evil Dead Red by AleSmith Brewing Company
American Amber / Red Ale
6.66 % ABV

Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer’s caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

Big thanks to Westsidethreat for the growler. I've wanted to try this for a couple years.

A - Pour produces a quarter inch head of tan foam. It's made up of varying sized bubbles. Recedes slowly to leave have the surface covered and a thick ring around the edges. Body is a clean garnet red. Yeah, it sort of looks like blood.

S - Oh my, what a lovely nose. Big citrusy burst, so robust you could swear it was a fresh hop ale. It's certainly gotta be dry-hopped. Pineapple, grapefruit and orange rind. Sweet malts back it up. Lovely.

T - Starts off with a fruity sweetness of ripe red fruit. Cherries and strawberries. Hops come in, citrusy with lemon and grapefruit, then comes the bitterness. It's like one wave after another of flavor here. Piney hops come in as well. Towards the end there is a bit of a biscuity dryness. My mouth is all dried out from the brash bitterness making me want another sip. And another, and another...

M - Medium bodied. Carbonation is average. This beer just seems to dry out your mouth like early versions of Surly Furious did and I love it.

Overall - This might be the best Amber I have had to date. This growler just isn't big enough. I'm going to want more as soon as this is gone.

Served In: Tulip

Awesome brew. Pours a dark, murky amber that forms a nice head that lasts well. Great taste in this one. Hops up fron, along with a strong malt presence and caramel.. Great brew.
