Yukon Red

In my opinion, Yukon Red is the cream of the Yukon Brewing crop. It's an amber ale from Whitehorse, Yukon. Sold in 341mL bottles and containing 5.5% alcohol, Yukon Red is a clear, penny-copper brew that poured with a small amount of cream head. I enjoyed a quick bottle while suiting up for my brother-in-law's wedding.

A warm, malty nose has brown sugar and caramel elements, as well as a shade of alcohol. The flavour is quite full, with caramel notes and a hearty roasted malt quality. The finish is relatively dry for an amber ale, and has a pretty fair hop presence.

This is a really enjoyable, well made beer. It's quite inviting and has lots of charm.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
