Global Warmer Imperial Red Ale

Category: Amber Ale

Date Tasted:

Bright deep amber color. Rich, inviting aromas and flavors of grapefruit marmalade, herb bread, and dried mango with a chewy, tangy, frothy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an astringent, appealing, medium-long finish with notes of kumquat chutney, pine, and bitter greens. A robust and very well balanced imperial red ale.

Amber ales can be anywhere from light copper to light brown in color and typically range from 4.5-6.5% in alcohol. They are light-to-medium bodied and are quite malty but not heavily caramelized in flavor. This is a more modern, non-traditional style, and many of these beers borrow heavily from the characteristics associated with more classical styles such as pale ales or bitters. Many North American brewers are now producing ales under this designation. We also classify “red ales” in this category. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Full Sail Amber Ale, Rogue American Amber Ale and Stone Levitation Ale.
