Beer Reviews: Lost Abbey Red Barn Ale


Beer: Red Barn Ale
BrewerThe Lost Abbey 
Source: 1 pint, 9.4 fluid oz bottle
Rating: ** (6.7 of 10)
Comments: A golden, bubbly beer with an apricot aroma, and the flavor of a bread roll and spices with a grapefruit aftertaste.  There are clumps of lacing on the glass with a medium mouthfeel.  Not a flavor to my taste but the effort to make a balanced beer is evident

Comments: This beer is a trip to the farm in a bottle.  The beer pours out golden with a matrix of tiny bubbles.  The aroma is sweet timothy and the flavor is a subtle blend of grass and pepper.  There’s minimal lacing on the glass and a light mouthfeel.
