Scottish Craft Beer Review: Autumn Red from Caledonian

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Scottish craft beer review is for Autumn Red from Caledonian.

Share It!

Most of the time craft beers taste like THINGS. Things like butterscotch or apples or asparagus. And then every so often you get a beer that tastes like an EXPERIENCE. An event, a time in your life, a memory.

Autumn Red was clear amber bitter and it tasted just like a good old down home Canadian Thanks Giving. I don't really know how else to describe it but after a few sips of this beer that is all I could think of. Being home in the crisp early Fall, wood smoke in the air, mist coming in, turkey and all the trimmings in the oven with a fresh apple pie cooling on the kitchen counter.

If you aren't sure what that all actually tastes like: quite sweet, vanilla, white chocolate. Fruity, toffee baked apple with brown sugar. Sage, rosemary, and thyme.

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK! You can contact me with comments and questions on twitter or facebook.
