Hawkshead – Red

Brewery –          Hawkshead

Beer –                 Red

Alcohol –          4.4%

Origin –             Staveley, Cumbria

Style –               Copper Ale

Season –           Autumn

Simple Name but red is what it is… Not slightly red, or tinted, or chestnut red, but a real vibrant red. A beautiful looking ale with a soft off white head.

The nose is of autumnal red berries, with cherry notes, and a surprising amount of chocholate.  

A wonderfully earthy bitterness awaits, with further chocolate and cherry notes, with hints of a slight spiciness. Warm, satisfying, full flavoured, leading to a dark chocholate bitter finish.

Not one you could dirnk all night, due to its robust stong flavours, but a beer to savour, delight, and devour!
