Cambridge Brewing Company Red God

Posted: June 2, 2015 in American Amber/Red Ale, Cambridge Brewing Company, Reviews

On Sunday, Val’s mother and stepfather and grandmother came down to see the house and have brunch with my family. It was a good time and now, the house is cleaner that it ever has been. After everyone headed home, we turned on “Muppets Most Wanted,” which was a fun, cute movie. I popped this open while we watched.


ABV: 9%

Style: American Amber/Red Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The Bottling Project production is run quite like the brew schedule at the brewpub – single batches of rotating CBC favorites…We do this by sharing facilities with our friends at Ipswich Ale Brewery in Ipswich, MA and at Wachusett Brewing Company in Westminster, MA.”

Random: I haven’t seen “Muppets In Space.” It looked somewhat dumb, but maybe I’ll give it a shot.

This beer poured with a huge, four finger, tan head that took forever to dissipate. It left lots of lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, dark red color with lots of sediment visible. It also had moderate carbonation. The nose had a lot of hops. Grass and toasted malts were there as well. The taste was not what I expected. There was a lot of lemony hops and grass and very light malt that gave it a twinge of sweetness. I couldn’t pick up any of the booze despite the ABV. It had a surprisingly thin body with moderate carbonation. It had a long, grassy finish. This was part of the case of beers that my parents picked up from Massachusetts for me, so I’m not sure what the price point is. All-in-all, this was a very enjoyable, bright beer that I would have again.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
