The Central City Brewers & Distillers has brewed up the somewhat rare style of an India Session Ale or ISA under the Red Racer label. This style of beer comes few and far between from BC Craft Breweries but represents a very sessionable, lightly hopped, low alcohol ale. This beer comes in 6-packs of 355ml cans and will be a great addition to your easy drinking favorites.The Red Racer ISA pours with two fingers of very loose head which leaves light lacing on the glass as it settles rather quickly. Through this head comes an aroma of mango, passion fruit, citrus and a light pine hop. While you may not guess it given the past year of BC beer examples – the source of this delicious scent is Mosaic Hops. The flavour is much like the smell with strong notes of mango and passion fruit in a fairly solid body given the low 4.0% ABV. For being a very light and sessionable ale the texture resembles something slightly bigger and the flavours are of a beer that will inhibit your senses a tad quicker. What brewmaster Gary Lohin has done here is bring the west coast flavour that we love and bring it down to a beer that can be enjoyed year round, won’t knock your socks off and is truly unique. The Mosaic hop was introduced to BC beer drinkers in a big IPA but this here is a form where it can truly shine. The Red Racer India Session Ale will surely become a summer fixture on the fridge shelves of BC Craft Beer lovers.
