Single Engine Red
(Denali Brewing Company)

It's amazing how many breweries up in Alaska are now going with cans. This is our first beer from Denali Brewing Company and Single Engine Red is one of two beers that they've so far released in cans - the other being their Twisted Creek IPA. The Talkeetna (pop. 876) brewery also has plans to release their Mother Ale and Chuli Stout in cans in the near future.

From the Denali Brewing site:

"For years local air taxis have ferried mountain climbers to the base camp on the south side of Denali, flown flight seeing tours over “The High One,” and dropped off backpackers and other outdoor enthusiasts in all corners of the Alaska backcountry. Denali Brewing Company draws the inspiration for its red ale from Talkeetna’s rich aviation history. Brewed with five choice American and European malts and just enough hops for balance, we hope you find Single Engine Red a suitable compliment to your next Alaskan adventure, whether in the air or on the ground."

Here we go...

Pour - dark amber in appearance with some reddish hues and an inch or so of off-white head sitting on top. Looks very quaffable. 


Aroma - caramel, rich roasted malt, brown bread, slightly citrusy, along with some aromas of apples and pears.


Taste - the first thing that hits the palate is the roasted malt flavors. This is a rich, flavorful beer with a load of toasty notes and some estery fruit flavors. Some slight hints of hops here and there but mostly this is bready/biscuity with the focus on the malts. Clean in the finish with a lingering sweetness. 


Overall - a full-bodied red ale with loads of roasty, toasty notes along with caramel apple flavors. A very enjoyable beer with plenty of aroma and flavor and smooth, sweet finish. 

Note -  Did you know that Alaska has more licensed aircraft pilots per capita than anywhere else in the US? According to statistics Alaska has six times the number of pilots per capita than anywhere else in the country. One out of every fifty-eight Alaskan residents has a pilot’s license.
