Juggernaut Red Ale, usually available August through September, may smell like a red, but tastes & looks more like a brown. This less-than-festive beer – i.e. more apple than apple pie – comes up rich and washes down smooth.
- tangy apple 'n orange nose, yet malty 'n bittersweet taste Juggernaut Red Ale (Pyramid Brewing Company in Seattle, WA) 5.6% ABV
The nose on this ale is a bit misleading. Think sour Granny Smith Apples, Oranges, and a hint of Caramel. Drink it up and malty, burnt brown bread comes through, then ends on a sweet Roasted Barley Groat. The color matches the bottle. The head is thin. The carbonation dies fast. And yet it goes down so easily.
Made from Simcoe & Cascade hops, and 2-Row and Carared malts, this pint tastes best paired with some Strawberries & Cheese – I'm doing so myself right now and it's blending fantastically – or a hearty Meat Stew.
