Spark House Red Ale from Lake of Bays Brewing in Baysville, Ontario pours a rusty amber colour with a large and creamy off-white head that leaves sparse spots of lace as it settles into a rocky film. This American amber ale carries thick aromas of roasted chocolate malts, raisin, black cherry and mineral water.
The taste of Spark House Red Ale shares many of the same qualities. Its roasted character is joined by dark fruit and chocolate flavours that transitions to a light and lemony tone in the finish. This medium-bodied, mildly carbonated ale has a bready, slightly syrupy mouthfeel and moderate bitterness. A pronounced mineral tone is found in the aftertaste.
The packaging of Spark House Red Ale Is primarily brown, with an orange wordmark located under the image of a park ranger’s tower printed using gold and red accents. You will find a brief description of the beer and a simple ingredients printed on the back and a date of packaging stamped near the shoulder of the can.
Spark House Red Ale has become a go to beer recently. It’s a mellow and versatile choice that is equally at home with a charcuterie plate or spinach salad on a hot day as it is with roast beef and mashed potatoes on one that’s cold and rainy.
You can find Spark House Red Ale on tap at licensees, at many LCBO and The Beer Store locations throughout Ontario and in select part of the USA.
