Bob's Bearded Red Ale

Walking home from dinner with some pals, my wife and I got caught in a deluge. Instead of walking home in the rain like suckers, we opted to duck into a local pub for a drink. We went to Opera Bob's, a great little place around the corner from our apartment. On tap, they had Bob's Bearded Red Ale, which is brewed by Toronto's Mill Street Brewery.

B.B.R.A. made for a very attractive pint. It's a reasonably clear brew with a nice amber hue and tpped with an extremely dense cream head. It has a pub ale aroma of malt and copper and a satisfying, creamy mouthfeel. There's a classic malt to bitter flavour profile.  There's some caramel and breadiness at the front end, and a respectably bitter finish and some nuttiness in the finish.

I found Bob's Bearded Red to be an unmemorable beer, but an enjoyable one all the same. Its creamy mouthfeel is definitely the best feature.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
