The Fairport Brewing Company Raider’s Red
The Fairport Brewing Company Raider’s Red is an Irish Red Ale, 4.8% ABV. Thanks to Kevin for the bottle.
This pours with a dark red color with very little light passing through the beer. A thin and bubbly head to start that almost completely fades away. The aroma is rather nice, some sweet caramel, toasted bread, and slight hints of dark fruits. This isn’t a style I never gravitate to, but it seems to be hitting most of the style guidelines that I can remember. The beer tastes a bit sweet overall, just a hint of hop bite, decent malt richness with a fairly dry finish.
Although I would not say this is the best beer I’ve had, It was nice to have something I would probably not have picked up on my own.
