JAMES SQUIRE FANS TO BE CAUGHT RED HANDED
Limited release Red Ale now available at James Squire Brewhouses
Created by the talented team of brewers at the Malt Shovel Brewery in Camperdown, James Squire Red Handed Red Ale is a hearty seasonal brew, ideal for the cooler months of the year.
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.
James Squire Red Handed Red Ale is now on tap for a limited time, available exclusively at the James Squire Brewhouses, including:
The Squire’s Maiden, Newcastle
