Columbus Brewing Company – Uncle Rusty Imperial Red Ale
This is a full-bodied red ale. Uncle Rusty packs a hefty 9.3% ABV and 90 IBUs. Despite the high alcohol content, Uncle Rusty is a smooth red ale, with nice balance of malt and hops. The hops hit you first, with the malt coming in at the end. The malt gives it notes of toasted bread and a touch of sweetness to compliment the hoppiness. This is every red ale lover’s dream.
