Red Racer Beer – India Style Red AleRed Racer Beer – India Style Red Ale Review

Central City Brewery’s Red Racer line has a new face in the form of the India Style Red Ale. This beer may look brand new but this is actually a facelift of the popular Red Racer ESB. Now available in 500ml cans this beer pours a reddish-copper colour topped with two fingers of lacing head. The beer smells strong with piney hops and relatively big for what was an ESB. As a Red Ale, the 60 IBU an big hop along with caramel sweetness and a maltiness puts it right on style. The flavour is a nice balance of hop and malt which starts off with a big hit of hops but as that mellows a malted flavour becomes apparent and balances the bitterness before a nice toasted caramel flavour comes into play. The finish is a toasted caramel, hop bitterness which is enjoyable and very well balanced. This is a beer that comes in a big can and has the flavour to match the size. The Red Racer India Style Red Ale is a great representation on the BC-inspired Red Ale.
