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.
This copper-red ale is mostly about MALT; in addition to our homegrown Overberg barley, we have added specially malted grains from Belgium and Germany. The beer has a rich toffee and caramel flavor with a lasting sweet aftertaste. Hops are added in to create subtle balancing bitterness.
Tweety Bird Amber Ale - The Tweety Bird is a typically brewed American Amber Ale. Fresh citrus on the nose and palate, backed by a malty body and medium bitterness.
