Surrey, BC, Canada – Central City has launched the new Red Racer Amber Ale, an American-style copper-coloured pale ale with an easy drinking, balanced malt and hop flavour. The new beer will replace the Red Racer Copper Ale in market.
The Red Racer Amber Ale has a lightly toasted body with a touch of sweetness balanced with a slightly bitter hop flavour. Columbus and Centennial hops give this beer a West Coast inspiration with light pine and citrus notes. The finish is dry and smooth with a slight lingering bitterness and roasted malt character.
“West Coast beer drinkers are big fans of sessionable beers so we decided to brew a new beer with a balanced malt and hop profile for a more sessionable Pale Ale experience,” says Gary Lohin, Brewmaster at Central City Brewers + Distillers. “We brewed our Amber Ale to be smoother, with a slight hoppy flavour to give it a bit of a kick. The Amber Ale will replace our Copper Ale and will be available all year round.”
The Red Racer Amber Ale (5.0% alc./vol., 25 IBU) is available in 355 ml six-packs and on draught and is available in liquor stores in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba.
