It may be a bit of a stereotype that red heads tend to be a tad fiery, bold and a little out there (but they say there's no smoke without a fire). And that's exactly the direction Fox Hat has headed with its latest core range beer, Red Pelt. It's an India Red Ale that fits nicely into their regular range, slotting in between the Metric IPA and Phat Mongrel Stout in colour.

Continuing the stereotype theme, this isn't a bookish redhead that'll spend its lunch break in the library fussing over last minute study notes. Instead, it's more likely to be rifling your pockets for lunch money.

It pours a dark toffee colour and jumps out of the glass with a punchy, piney hop hit. There's a full, thick mouthfeel that comes with more toffee and caramel malt flavours, kicking on with a sizeable, hard-hitting bitter linger.
