First blog for 2013, and it’s a bit of catch up on some new releases from the tail end of 2012. On the 20th November, we enjoyed the Big Red Machine Fall Classic Ale (BRMFCA). It’s an American Red Ale from Baird Brewing Company in Japan. The lads found it a bit cloudy looking and probably not what some people would call a red. Not much evidence of hops to the taste, a bit sweet, but neither here nor there. Some comments:
“It has a blackcurrant, syrupy raspberry thing going on” (GBM)
” A bit on the viscous side, it’s got body without being boozy…like a mormon cheerleader” (the jesuit)
The BRMFCA is the type of beer you would have in the States (or Japan) when you are raking leaves or watching gag reels on ESPN. The food match?…apple pie or hot biscuits.
