Moody Ales – Honey Red Ale Review
In the Small Batch Series of beers from Moody Ales comes the Honey Red Ale. This limited release beer comes in at 5.5% alcohol and is sole in bomber, 650ml bottles. Pouring the Honey Red Ale it is an amber-brown colour with two full fingers of head that slowly settles from the top of the glass. By appearance this is a touch dark for a Red Ale. The aroma from this beer is of caramel, toasted malt and a light hop character. The Honey adds a touch of sweetness along side that of the malty base. The flavour is deep with toasted malt character taking hold. A Caramel and lightly burnt flavour take charge in a malt forward package. The honey content is subdued but adds to the toasted character and leads into a mildly spicy, hopped finish. The Moody Ales Honey Red Ale is not a characteristically BC-styled beer but brings with it a unique, toasted and malt forward flavour with a mellow honey infusion.
Alcohol – 5.5%
