Beer a Day Blog

My opinion on a variety of beers.

Red Leaf

The weather is unseasonably warm here with temperatures in the low 20s. So what better way to enjoy the sunshine than to sit on my patio and enjoy a beer.  Red Leaf is red brewed by the Great Lakes Microbrewery of Toronto, Canada, which was Toronto’s first craft brewery, established in 1987, (due to Ontario’s archaic liquour laws which only allowed them as of late). It bills itself as a smooth red and that certainly is a fitting description. Typical of a red in colour I found it went down very easily, smooth indeed.  The one thing that I did find was it was a little heavy in carbonation, you could actually notice it on your tongue. It faded a bit towards the last few sips but I found it a bit unnerving.  Now would I recommend it, yes I would if you are looking for a smooth, not overbearing red that goes down nice on a sunny day on the patio or deck. Besides how can you not like a beer that says it goes best with hamburgers, ribs or sandwiches.
