Gahan Island Red

From Canada's smallest province comes Gahan Island Red Premium Red Ale. This stuff is brewed by the PEI Brewing Company out of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. This clear, copper-coloured ale contains 5.4% alcohol and comes in a 500mL bottle. It pours with a quickly thinning off-white head.

There are mild caramel and malt aromatics, as well as a measure of hops looming in the background. The flavour kicks off with subtly sweet burnt toffee, which is subsumed by a modestly hoppy finish. There is also a slight metallic flavour and a bit of breadiness.

This is a nice, modestly flavourful red ale off of P.E.I. If you see it, I say give it a whirl.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
