Faulty Red Button is our take on a classic Irish Red Ale. The beer pours with a red-amber hue and a lacy head that dissipates as the beer settles. The beer has a rich caramel aroma, with a bit of maltyness and a hint of toffee and toast from the roasted grains. The beer starts out with a slight initial sweetness on the tongue that transitions to a roasty dryness with a hint of alcohol warmth from the 7.5% ABV.
A secondary fermenter is required for this beer.
