Two more beers to go from the Scottish trade with This Beer Blog. Today I’m trying Red Rocker from Cromarty. This beer has a really complex malt and hop bill. It’s brewed with rye, pale malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt and carafa. The hops used are Summit, Columbus, Cascade, Nelson Sauvin. I’m really looking forward to this beer, so let’s get started!
Brown / Amber color with a big off-white head. The head leaves a lot of sticky laces on the glass.
I’m getting pine, grapefruit, some sweet fruits and malts. The beer smells delicious!
The flavor is a bit more toned down compared to the aroma. Most of the aromas I picked up are also present in the flavor though.
The mouth feel is slightly thin and the carbonation level is soft and smooth.
Up front I’m getting a lot of grape fruit. After some seconds it fades away and leaves some bitter notes and hints of pine lingering for a while.
Yet another really refreshing and tasty beer. I would have expected a fuller body, which might help boost the score. Still, a really enjoyable beer. Score: 4/5.
