Big Red Machine Fall Classic Ale Aroma and Taste

Big Red Machine Fall Classic Ale had a dark red, perhaps more brown than red body to it with very little head. The head I did manage to tease out was from some nifty wrist flicking action at the end. The malts in the beer pushed the aromas up into the nasal cavity, blasting them over the big green monster with notes of caramel, toffee, pine, and a strong nose of smokiness. There were some hops to Big Red Machine Fall Classic Ale but the powerful malt mix sends them to the bottom.

This beer is a bold in the body as brash as it is in the nose. The bitterness comes through to make it bolder than the IBU 45 suggests but fades off quickly. The caramel and toffee are the big hitters in Big Red Machine Fall Classic Ale and are strong throughout the beer. The aftertaste at the end is bitter with the smokiness lingering on the taste buds.

Big Red Machine Fall Classic Ale One Line Review

Big Red Machine Fall Classic Ale is a solid beer that would be an excellent choice for a session beer if it wasn’t 6.5%.
