Red Racer India-Style Red Ale
Red Racer India-Style Red Ale is another member of the Red Racer family of beers from Surrey, BC's Central City Brewers + Distillers. Sold in 473mL cans, these suds contain 5.6% and 60 IBUs. It's a clear, coppery ale with a cloud of off-white head.
The India-Style Red has a metallic, malty scent. It kicks off with a hearty malt taste, rich and roasty. It closes out with a pretty respectable hops vibe.
This offering from the Red Racer line is a pretty strong addition. It's hearty and flavourful, with lots of nice elements. Not quite as boozy as I'd have liked, though, and the finish feels like it lacks direction.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
