Insanely Bad Elf

16 Feb

Beer : Insanely Bad Elf Imperial Red Ale

Brewer : Ridgeway Brewing

Location : Oxfordshire UK

Alcohol Content : 11.2 %

Aroma : Very little

Appearance : Clear, light golden color with minimal head

Body : Medium

Marketing Gimmick : The label used for this ale depicts an elf in a straight jacket. It states that Santa concluded that after visiting this elf, “sanity is over-rated!”

Survey Says : This seasonal beer had a fairly strong flavor. It was just lightly carbonated. There were some toasty notes but also  some bitter hoppiness was evident. The bitterness was not at all overbearing and tended to blend well with the toasty maltiness. This is a high alcohol brew and it was quite evident rather quickly! You wouldn’t necessarily want to belt down this beer too quickly. This ale was not bad, but was nothing to write home about. I would probably not care to try it again.
