Checking in with one more brew from Bone Up Brewing that I wanted to showcase this week. This one caught my eye because it reminded me of something they released a little while back that I really enjoyed.
Brewery: Bone Up Brewing Company (Everett, MA)
Style: Red Ale
Description: Best enjoyed while “fearfully scurrying away from a cat,” this red ale was brewed with Massachusetts grown Rakau hops and named in honor of a departed Pyrenees named Domino.
Appearance: It poured to a light caramel and amber colored body topped off by a firm line of white foam.
Smell: Subdued malty sweetness.
Taste: Mild caramel and citrus sweetness upfront followed by a dry, malty finish. There was also an underlying toastiness throughout bringing a smooth, even presence to the beer.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Hype: Not a whole lot, though seeing this beer did remind me of how much I miss the dog-themed glass I had from them that met with an unfortunate accident.
Overall: This was a tasty, no nonsense beer that really found a way to hit the spot. Perhaps not the flashiest of brews, it was still a nice beer to kick back and relax with.
