Sleeman Red Ale – Rousse

On tap, Taco Mac, Marietta, GA, USA. $4.75 a pint. Taco Mac is advertising this as “La Russe”, which for now, I am assuming is this beer – seems reasonable, but maybe I’ll have to change it later. As usual, TM has a tenous connection with beer knowledge. Served way too cold.
Pint has a nice garnet color, but a small head and not much lace. Has a typical, British, kegged-bitter appearance, which to be brutally frank, is not necessary wonderful.
In reality, I quite liked this beer – it seemed to have an almost sweet and sour quality about it. It was difficult to characterize this, but I am guessing that the malts made uo the sweetness and the hops introduced some bitterness. Certainly a fruity nature to the beer as well. Slightly tart fruit in there (unsweetened raspberries, strawberries “x”berries etc.)
This was tasty. I’m not totally convinced by it, but I would like to visit it again.
