Nail’s Red Carpet has been rolled out once more for winter 2020, and once again awaits fans of big beers but not necessarily those filled with the cake-friendly contents of aisle 5. Also, this is an imperial red ale, not an imperial red IPA, a distinction which may confuse some while finding greater favour with others.
Debuting as a GABS beer five years ago, the near annual release shows subtle vintage variance. For the 2020 release, smooth caramel and toffee malt layers hold a balanced, citrusy hoppiness modelled after the Citra led core range Red, before this red carpet affair resolves with a signature Nail dryness.
