Jamaica Red Ale

12 oz bottle as a single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA. Different label than the one in the BA db.
A slightly hazed, mid-brown pour sits underneath an off-white medium sized head and produces some better than average lace.
Nose dives up some dry hop notes.
Tastes are in line for the style and combine a decent hop and malt balance with the requisite dry finish. Aftertaste lingers to give some more residual hoppiness which is appropriate. Some mild alcohol burn in the back end and finish. The lingering bitter note is actually quite nice as it reminds you of the tasty beer you have just consumed.
A straightforward beer that showcases the style quite well without frills or drama. Decent beer.
