Rocks The Boxer Red Ale
Brewery: Rocks Brewing Company
Style: Irish Ale
Format: 500 Bottle
Rocks Red Ale was the first beer released by Rocks Brewing in 2008. As an Irish Red Ale, the beer pours with an off white head and deep jarrah red hue. The soft caramel malt flavour profile comes from the use of UK crystal and chocolate malts. These malts also give a rich aromaof caramel and chocolate on the nose. Lightly bittered and at just over 4% of alcohol this beer is an easy drinking pint with a malt-focus.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
This beer is typical of the style, ie tending towards being thin and without a great deal of favour. Pours a dark red with little carbonation and an aroma reminiscent of cereal. Flavour is a nutty caramel. Given alcohol content probably a good session beer.
