American red ale – easy to drink, hard to define

American red ales (essentially big, ruddy amber ales) again display the typical American characteristics of minimal yeast character due to clean American strains, high hop bitterness, flavour and aroma (again, citrus and pine), a big malty background and a luscious ruby colour due to careful malt selection. Again, a steady hand is vital with malt selection, too much and too dark will result in an ale that is decidedly brown.

Unlike most Irish red ales, Boyne have used contemporary varieties of hops and German hops called Mandarin Bavaria to introduce a rich orange peel character to the end of the beer, that complements the malt flavours perfectly.

Often the colour of the beer is mistaken for the level of alcohol volume it contains. But in reality, any colour ale can be any ABV. In fact, many lighter amber ales are a lot stronger than dark brown ales. Instead, the colour of ale is an indicator of the type of malt that has been used during the brewing process.

American Amber Ale is a style coined by American brewers in the 1980s to describe beers that were amber or red in color, showcasing caramel or toffee malt character and American hops. In many ways, American Amber Ales bridge the gap between American Pale Ales and American Brown Ales, and often share characteristics with these styles.

Lagers are a typical entry point into beer for new drinkers. Made with bottom fermenting yeast that has a lower tolerance to alcohol, lagers can taste light and a little malty. Classic lagers in America include Miller High Life, Coors, Budweiser and Yuengling. And according to Jim Koch, the co-founder of Boston Beer Co., which makes Sam Adams beer, lagers are a great launching pad for newcomers to beer.
