King Road Brewing Red Ale

Style

Another trip to Melbourne for the Australian International Beer Awards, another trophy for their lager to add to the cabinet at their Oldbury home. And, with Red Ale, King Road’s fourth seasonal release for the year, one that brings to mind simpler times in the beer world.

Uncomplicated, yet well made, it's a reminder of how beers like this can warm the soul as much as set the scene for cool climate conviviality; this one conjures rosy nostalgia of the first pours of Two Birds’ Sunset all those years ago too.

In the glass, smooth caramel nestles with a hint of toast like a comforting woolly jumper gently warmed by low winter light. A moderate ABV maintains the beer's social intent, while the dryness that increases through the glass suggests this would be ideal for rich food pairing options.

Should you make it to their sprawling brewpub south of Perth, you'll also have a chance to enjoy Red Ale in an extra creamy nitro pour.
