Tasmanian Red Ale — Splendid Isolation, craft beer from Hobart, Tasmanai

Tasmanian Red Ale

Pinot noir vines tangle over rows in the Tamar Valley.The Bay of Fires’ lichen-covered red rocks on the East Coast. Orchards full of trees hold apples and cherries in Huon Valley.

Big red rock lobsters float between shallow pools to the continental shelf. A theatre of Fagus transforms from rose red to shiny gold. The cold air gives your cheeks a frosty kiss on an August morning. 

Red. Tasmanian.

Introducing Splendid Isolation’s debut brew, Tasmanian Red Ale.

With hues of amber and copper, this ale glows like a ruby if you hold it up to the right kind of light. It sparkles like one, too.

Victoria’s Secret, Cascade and Amarillo hops give Tasmanian Red Ale scents of apricots and peaches. There’s an underlying richness to this malt-driven style of beer. It’s a little bit sweet — you’ll taste swirls of toffee and caramel, cut with a refreshing line of bitterness to lighten up the mouthfeel.

The malt profile provides some slightly sweet, nutty flavours with a touch of bitterness. Pair Tasmanian Red Ale with light game meat, tomato-based pasta dishes, and aged cheddar.
