FLYING FISH PESCADO ROJO GRANDE

Thin barrel-aged Redfish Red Ale hybrid (with unassuming 9% ABV) seems awkwardly designed as mild Jose Cuervo tequila adjunct and rummy mojito wisp drop off alongside citric mist to acrid alkaline astringency at barren oaken vanilla finish. Somewhere in the mix, limey agave briskness sweetened only slightly by sugary pecan-almond conflux,  ginger-spiced grapefruit-pineapple-orange fruiting and high fructose corn syruping.

GLUTENBERG RED ALE

Clearly confusing red ale styling (in a can) at least betters brewers’ nasty gluten-free American Pale Ale. Shrill metallic shards scrape the inside of the musty millet-grained chestnut groove. Muffled flavor profile also tosses buckwheat, molasses and candy syrup into the confounding mix. Ashen nutty coarseness helps ruin the dank malt finish.
