Silver City Brewery Ridgetop Red Ale (6%)

ridgetop-red-alePeanut butter and caramel.
That or Daim bars.
That’s the overriding smell and initial flavour of this beer.
And that is just fine by me.
Silver City of Washington State have brewed a Red Ale that I’d happily drink every day of the year.
It pours a chestnut red with a little frothy head and it’s sweet and chewy, warm and satisfying.
There’s a resinous redwood hopping that’s laced with orange marmalade and a little sherbet lemon, but this is all about the sticky malting that manages to tread that dangerous path between sweet and sickly without once straying over the edge.
And so you find brown bread and wafers, honey and caramel, brown sugar syrup, waffles, bagels, all sorts of comforting goodness.
Yup, I could drink this all the time.
