Upland Brewing Rad Red Amber Ale

Upland Brewing Rad Red Amber Ale

This beer is brewed by the Upland Brewery which is located in Bloomington IN. This beer is available year-round and it has a 5.6% ABV.

I found this beer to pour a nice amber color with an off white head that laces on the glass. The aroma of this beer consisted of some sweet caramel malts, as well as some toffee and a hint of some nutty tones however it left me wanting more as it was slightly bland. When tasting this beer I found it to have a nice balance between the caramel malt and toffee found in the aroma however the  bitter metallic, herbal hop finish seems to overpower and linger on the tongue. I do think that this beer has a nice mouthfeel, and a medium body however.

Overall this is an alright beer. I think that I would give it another chance however the metallic hop finish of this beer seems to overpower the rest malts that start the beer off nicely.

Cheers!
