I do love my ruby ales and on today's menu we have Imperial Red from Wychwood. With red in the name, it was no surprise to see a glorious ruby hued beer flow out of the bottle with a small, but thick, beige head.
It has a sweet malty smell with a hint of a metallic aroma, almost as if you were smelling a bloody battlefield inhabited by the warrior on the label. The taste is something that my tastebuds enjoy: a mixture of toffee, malt and something I can only describe as a red liquorice laces aftertaste.
Fizzy and tasty, it's a really enjoyably ruby and Ale Be Seeing You Again.
Brewed by Wychwood, Oxfordshire
