Breckenridge Red Ale

Breckenridge Brewery

USA

I've actually had dinner at this brewery and tried their beer on site, so I was excited to find this (albeit in a liquor store in Arkansas). I love "Reds" because they tend to have a caramel maltiness that I have really grown to love. This one didn't have that distinct caramel flavor, but it was there in the background. Much more outstanding was the hoppy flavor...just enough to give it a kick, but not too bitter. It had a smooth, creamy malty flavor that made it pretty enjoyable, so if Atlanta beer stores would get off their asses and get Breckenridge out here, I could get down to business and start enjoying their product, starting with more of this stuff. Overall, well made.
