Sail & Anchor / Karl Strauss “The Bloke” Red Ale

Crofty's Beer Blog

A collaboration between the American Karl Strauss and the Australian Woolworths owned Sail & Anchor range.

The beer pours a dark amber to red, tightly packed head with a strong malt/toffee aroma.

the bottle tells me I should be tasting “grapefruit and tangerine”, however all I’m getting is a sharp acrid bitterness. The finish is fairly sweet, with that lingering bitterness that I can only guess is from the malt.

I was hoping for so much more, unfortunately a pretty big let down. Possibly a bad bottle, others have said they enjoyed it, next time I’ll grab the devil dodger instead.
