Review: Russell Blood Alley Bitter

Russell Blood Alley Bitter by Cody La Bière

Here's Russell Brewing's Blood Alley Bitter, from Vancouver BC. It is $5.22 for a 550mL bottle, 5.5% ABV.

Appearance: Nice painted label, as expected from Russell's special beers, pop-top cap, love the label.. if you love pork, you'll love it! The beer itself.. a copper brown transparent appearance, just your average ale, off white head.
Aroma: Hint of toasted hops, not much else.
Taste: Slightly bitter, slightly hoppy, a hint of citrus.. not much really going for it. Hint of caramelly sweetness. I'm bored, I think there's a bit of nuttiness?

It's fairly plain, boring, not the best from Russell, but it was interesting to try, atleast. Happy Canada Day everyone!

I actually quite liked this beer, definitely good for sipping and went really well with my food choices (sliders with bacon and other meaty goodness).

Maybe you can check out my review of it too?
