Roasted Red Ale was the second beer ever released by Switchback and quickly became a cult favorite. This deep mahogany-red colored ale leads with a rich caramel maltiness balanced with a bold hop signature, followed by a delicate cocoa roasted finish. The bold citrus and flowery aromas of Amarillo hops are balanced by dark caramel malts, providing an intense malt profile, with a touch of roast malt to cleanse the palate of any sweetness. To create hop complexity, Simcoe hops are added for kettle additions and dry-hopping. The newly designed label is an expression of Vermont’s fifth season – mud season, featuring a red barn board pattern accented by icy metallic lettering. This is the time of year to embrace the extra sunlight and enjoy robust beer outside!
