Rhinegeist Dad

Posted: July 10, 2017 in American Amber/Red Ale, Reviews, Rhinegeist Brewery

This was the second beer that I had at The Eagle. They had a spicy honey to pair with the fried chicken. The chicken was absolutely perfect. It wasn’t greasy and the breading had a lot of flavor. I also had the brown sugar bacon and the pickle plate. I love pickled vegetables. It was the perfect meal to have before leaving Ohio.

ABV: 6%

Style: American Amber/Red Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This hoppy red ale balances crisp hops with juicy malts like a well worn flannel embraces the cold early dark days of winter. Notes of citrus and cherry life saver.”

Random: This is a seasonal beer that is available in November and December.

The brew poured with a half a finger of off white head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The nose was hoppy for an amber with some pine needles and transitioned into nutty malt. It had a hint of rye spice. It didn’t impart anything that was specifically “holiday,” although I’m not complaining about that. The taste was filled with pine, specifically the pine sap that you get on your hands after cutting down a Christmas tree. The rye was a bit more pronounced in the taste than the nose. It also had nutty malt. The body was thicker than usual for the style and decent carbonation. The finish was lengthy and nutty. This beer was really enjoyable and paired well with the food I ordered. If you see it on tap before the holidays, give it a shot.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
