Steamworks Heroica Red Ale Review

Steamworks Brewing Co. – Heroica Red Ale Review

From Steamworks Brewery the Heroica Red Ale has been brewed which pays tribute on its beautivul label to the dangerious work of our Firefighters. This Red Ale is brewed using Centennial, Citra and Simcoe Hops weighing in at 45 IBU and an alcohol content of 5.6% Pouring from the bottle this beer appears an amber-red colour topped with a finger and a half of heavily lacing head. Leaving a great deal of residue on the glass’s sides the Heroica smells of delicious hops, light caramel sweetness and a smoothness of hazelnut and toffee. The flavour has a defined pine-hop to it with a reasonably smooth body. Along side the strong hop-tones comes a touch of sweetness from the toasted malts along with a smooth hazelnut flavour and dark toffee notes. Despite this description the Heroica Red Ale is lighter bodied than you may think and is a fantastic flavoured beer to come from Burnaby’s Steamworks Brewing Company

Alcohol – 5.6%
IBU – 45
Hops – Centennial, Citra, Simcoe
Size – 650ml
Price – $7.45 (Craft Retailer)
