Coaster Critique: Marshall Wharf/NDH Scarlet Leather

Name: Scarlet Leather002

Brewed By: Marshall Wharf Brewing in collaboration with Nocturnem Draft Haus

Style: Imperial red ale

ABV: 7%

Pours very clear, a deep amber color with red and gold highlights and a short off white head.

The nose is full if Citra hops, juicy, fruity hop aroma.

Initial sip is sweet, malty, caramel flavor with a big burst of fruity, citrus and herbal hops. As the flavor develops the beer dries out and leaves you with a pleasant bitterness.

Overall a tasty beverage for celebrating the third anniversary of Nocturnem Draft Haus.  A big hoppy beer that has a solid malt body to lend balance. This is a flavorful, easy drinking beer. Congrats to Nocturnem Draft Haus on three successful years in Bangor, I hope to see many more collaboration beers in the future.
