Jailhouse Brewing Conjugal Visit Red Ale

My buddy Ed picked me up a bottle of Jailhouse Brewing Conjugal Visit Red Ale while in Atlanta. The beer pours a dark red color with a frothy off-white colored head with some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of caramel, toasted malts, and a hint of grassy hops. The taste is dry and lightly bitter with some lemon, but it is all built upon a solid caramel and toffee base. There are some toasted malts that really shine in the background, and the finish brings out some pepper. The after taste leaves a grassy hop flavor that will stay on the tongue for a while. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. This was a solid red ale with a great bitter lemon and grassy hop flavor. I really enjoyed the base of the beer, but the bitterness is what makes the beer.
