St. Arnold Brewing Icon Red, originally uploaded by adambarhan.
A: Pours pale golden/orange color with a bit of haze. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Definitely crystal malts. A cereal grain aroma with a light sweetness. A light bitterness that fades to a grassy/floral aroma. Finishes with a dry yeast character. Some light peppery phenols.
T: Pretty much follows the nose. Some cereal, bread and biscuit. Even some dry cracker flavors up front. A light sweetness after that. Grassy and floral hops. Then phenolic and peppery yeast in the finish.
M/D: A medium body and good carbonation. This finishes dry and crisp. Smooth at the same time. Easy to drink.
