Brewer Description: (from website) Westfalia packs rich, caramel flavors into a rounded, mahogany body through a colorful blend of creamy malts. Traditionally fermented at cooler temperatures, Westfalia’s rotbier style showcases a layered malt profile that creates a smooth, satisfying mouthfeel, perfect for any meal or enjoyed on its own. Inspired by a trip to Nuremberg, Germany, Westfalia imports an exemplary red ale to audiences closer to home.

Intro: A 12 fl. oz. can, canned on 1st August 2018, ‘westy4life’. Poured into an Epic pint glass.
Appearance: Clear copper reddish brown colour with a just over one finger off white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: A bit light on the aroma, light roast, caramel, plum, red grapes and toast.
Taste: Sweet malts, roasty, toasted bread, caramel, raisin, plum and maybe a touch of lemon on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Aromas were a little weak, while taste was probably too sweet for my liking. The roasty toasty bits did balance out the sweetness a little, but not enough.
