James Squire Brewhouses around Australia are once again pouring something a little different, offering visitors the opportunity to trial a flavoursome take on a traditional Red Ale-style beer.
Created by the talented team of brewers at the Malt Shovel Brewery in Camperdown,
At 5.2% ABV, James Squire Red Handed Red Ale has a deep amber colour with subtle red hues topped by a pillowy head. The rich malty palate delivers a taste of caramel and toffee, which is complemented by a firm bitterness. The discerning drinker will also enjoy the delicious flavours of mandarin and pine, which also appear courtesy of a late dry hopping of Citra and Cascade hops.
“The team at Malt Shovel wanted to play with a traditional style we hadn’t tried before. Red Ales can be tricky to balance because you need to find the right malt sweetness and colour, plus we wanted to include a dry hop tweak. That said, we see it as a perfect Autumn release,” Malt Shovel Head Brewer, Chris Sheehan said.
