Woodstock Inn Red Rack Ale

So here we go.  My first review to make Hop it up is, Woodstock Inn's Red Rack Ale.  The brewery offers 12 different beers and a root beer, but today we are taking a look at the Red Rack Ale.
Woodstock Inn Brewery is located in Woodstock New Hampshire. Red Rack Ale is considered an American Amber/Red Ale.  

 The appearance of Red rack was a crystal clear amber with a small cream colored head that dissipated relatively quickly. The aroma was surprisingly rich and sweet. It seemed to smell of  raisins with honey and a hint of brandy in the background.

 The flavor of Red Rack was pretty close to the aroma. There was a noticeable buttery, sweet caramel flavor, while still being clean and refreshing.  Red Rack is malty up front, but has a decent malt to hop balance. A very pleasant combination. Flavorful, but finishes easy. There seems to be high carbonation, which can produce a metallic taste, but it worked for me. A medium hoppy bitterness lingers at the very end, which reminded me that I was drinking a craft beer!!  I do recommend you serve this beer cold.  

Over all I give Woodstock Inn Red Rack Ale a B+.
