This hoppy Holiday Red Ale has a blend of hop spice, citrus and some caramel malts to raise the holiday spirit in this Pale Ale.
Dad is Rhinegeist’s answer to a holiday beer, but honestly… I’d be happy with this any time of the year. Continuing their theme of creating great sessionable beers that have a great hop presence to them… Dad is just that with a holiday spice spin to it.
The first thing you notice is how beautiful it is in a glass…a great reddish brown color with a medium tan head on it. This is a great beer to look at. The aroma comes next with a wonderful caramel sweetness in the background with a christmasy spice overtone and some wonderful hop aromas mingling about amongst it all.
Dad is one of my favorite holiday beers in the city because it’s different…it’s not a big sweet ale with a huge dosing of nutmeg. This is one that you need to pick up when you get a chance… Delicious.
