After the debut of Apple Ale during a 2013 Super Bowl commercial, Redd’s has now released a new flavor: Redd’s Strawberry Ale. Apparently Apple Ale did so well (seriously who bought it?) that they decided to add a new flavor to their profile. Strawberry Ale (5% ABV) has low malt with the taste of strawberries and crisp apples. So really, it’s beer with apple and strawberry flavors.
We’re not trying to rag on Redd’s but this sounds like a sugary chemical blend of fruit used to mask any existing beer flavor. Have you tried Redd’s Apple or Strawberry Ale? Tell us what you thought of it. Don’t be shy; we want your honest opinion.
