Horizon Red Ale by Summit Brewing Company

House is again full of workers doing their thing making our new hardwood floors look awesome.  I have to say…I don’t know how anyone couldn’t love hardwood floors.  IMHO…such much nicer than the nicest carpet and even better looking knowing that the wood used is from the rarest of tress in the rain forest.  Kidding of course about the rare wood and the rain forest…not about how nice the floors look.

Anyways…on to beer #165.  Horizon Red Ale by Summit Brewing Company from St. Paul, Minnesota.  This American Amber or Red Ale has an ABV of 5.7%.

The pour showed a nice amber colored brew with white head that produced some nice lacing.  The nose was caramel malts and bit of pine from the hops.  The hops were up first in the taste with an orange peel like flavor and bitterness.  The caramel malts followed that with a very slight sweetness.  Oddly enough…there was a bit more hop (more of that orange peel) flavors after the malts to finish out the mouthful.  It had a medium body with quite a bit of carbonation.  Fairly drinkable for me…I’m not a huge fan of Red or Amber Ales.

This was decent…nothing spectacular.  There was a bit more hoppier presence than I anticipated.  For me…it was an average beer.
