Roman Red is a beautifully balanced, medium-bodied amber ale. It pours a clear African Sunset red with a dense off-white head. The citrus and pine resin hop aroma typically associated with Pacific North Western hop varieties strikes a balance with caramel, raisins and a hint of smokiness from the darker crystal malts. Residual sweetness from the malt counters the hop bitterness. The beer finishes in a lingering mix of caramel and bitterness.
