Brewing Co. – Rum Runner Red Ale Review

Persephone Brewing has exploded launching their bottled lineup with vigor. While these brews may not be widely available yet if you keep a keen eye you may just stumble across a bottle of the Rum Runner Red Ale. This beer pours a deep copper colour topped with two fingers of lacing head. As the slow to settle top disperses a hopped aroma comes through with a light oak flavour. Additionally a caramel sweetness livens the beer and gives it a rather intoxicating scent. The flavour is big with hops and rather smooth with a light rum-oak sweetness. The toasted sweetness comes through strong and mellows the hop nicely. An oaked flavour smooths out the flavour profile nicely making for a smooth and quite enjoyable, hop-forward beer. If you can find Persephone’s Rum Runner Red Ale give it a try – it is quite nice!

    Nice rounded brew. Hop presence in this Red Ale is balanced. It does have great scent. A good example of a well made Red Ale.
