Elysian Brewing Company Men’s Room Original Red – American Pale Ale at 5.6% ABV

Elysian Brewing Company Men’s Room Original Red American Pale Ale at 5.6% ABV (C$7.75 at Sundance Wine Market, 650 ml, bottle date May 5, 2014)

Pours slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of loose light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate chunky lacing. (4/5) Nose is toasted malt, caramel, mild floral and citrus. (6/10) Taste is medium sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry and mild bitter finish. (3/5)

Sigh… I have regret. Not that this is a bad beer – it’s not. But it’s just what it says on the bottle: an original red. And that’s about all it is. Nothing interesting or memorable here. (12/20)
