Alesmith Releases Halloween Offering, Evil Dead Red

Alesmith Evil Dead Red

Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer’s caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.
