Beer: O'Fallon Rager Red

O'FALLON BREWERY (O'Fallon, Missouri) - RAGER RED - 3.5 

O'Fallon Brewery, based near the beer mecca of St. Louis, Missouri, has been crafting fine ales for 12 years now, and is a sort of fixture locally. Distributed throughout the Midwest, O'Fallon has released a new Spring seasonal, Rager Red, an Irish-style red ale, in 6-packs and kegs. I was lucky enough to enjoy a bottle not long after release.

Pours, naturally, a ruby-amber tone, with fair carbonation and thin, wispy lace on the inside of my pint glass. Aroma is caramel and toffee malts. Not bad. Taste is sharp, toasty grains. I also get a hint of fruit and a little hop tinge at the finish. 

Really, a deilghtful, eminently drinkable session ale that's both accessable and flavorful. Nice one!
