James Squire launches limited release Red Ale

Red Ale DecalJames Squire Brewhouses around Australia are once again pouring something a little different,offering visitors the opportunity to trial a flavoursome take on a traditional Red Ale-style beer.

Created by the talented team of brewers at the Malt Shovel Brewery in Camperdown,

At 5.2% ABV, James Squire Red Handed Red Ale has a deep amber colour with subtle red hues topped by apillowy head. The rich malty palate delivers a taste of caramel and toffee, which is complemented by a firmbitterness. The discerning drinker will also enjoy the delicious flavours of mandarin and pine, which alsoappear courtesy of a late dry hopping of Citra and Cascade hops.

“The team at Malt Shovel wanted to play with a traditional style we hadn’t tried before. Red Ales can betricky to balance because you need to find the right malt sweetness and colour, plus we wanted to includea dry hop tweak. That said, we see it as a perfect Autumn release,” Malt Shovel Head Brewer, ChrisSheehan said.
