Redhook Brewing is one of the largest craft brewers in the United States. This spring, Redhook’s nut brown ale returns as Mudslinger, first brewed in 2010. It’s a nice seasonal transition – not too dark, and not too light. Same as the weather.
Mudslinger is a Nut Brown Ale with a Medium body and a fresh aroma. Its malty flavor is layered with light chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and a hint of vanilla. Six barley malts and two hop varieties result in a surprisingly smooth, well balanced dark beer.
