Red Zepplin has a dark copper red color and a clear body topped by a small foamy white head. starr bros red zepplinThe aroma is smokey and heavy on roasted and toasted malts that smells like a sweet cookie. Initial flavor is dominated by the caramel malts and mellows as the hops balance out the finish. More subtle and less pronounced flavors include a brown sugar like sweetness and faint nuttiness. The heavy malt body is well balanced but not over powered by the clean hop finish.

I’m a big fan of more traditional style reds and Red Zepplin hits the mark perfectly for me.  It’s a great balance on a malt forward ale with just enough hops to tingle my senses. I would recommend Red Zepplin to anyone who enjoys malt forward ales such as browns, ambers, and reds.
