About this real ale
The aroma has vine fruits with a hint of caramel toffee from the aromatic malt and a nod towards the hoppiness to come. Red River has a smooth, full mouthfeel and an initial taste of almonds and some metallic flavour from the hops. There’s a good malt and hop balance and just enough alcohol warmth for the strength. As the taste develops the hoppiness grows with a long lingering bitter aftertaste with hints of pine and spice.
