Betrayal Imperial Red Ale

Betrayal Imperial Red Ale is a limited series beer brewed by San Francisco’s Speakeasy Ales & Lagers. It has a nice balance of toasty and caramel malts with piney and citrus hops in the nose. It has a very sweet flavor, mostly of chocolate and caramel malts with a little bitter pine hops to even it out. It’s not too carbonated, making it very drinkable and smooth. The 8.2% alcohol content makes it a well-rounded red ale, and worth trying for anybody who enjoys quality craft beers. The artwork on the label is cool too. There’s a seductive young flapper gazing over her shoulder and it seems as though she’s looking right at you. It seems innocent enough, until you notice the silhouette of fedora-wearing man in her hand mirror. There’s something scandalous going on, and you’re going to have to buy the beer to see what the betrayal is all about.
