Idle Hands Oaked Orange Ale – Red Arrow Brewing

From Duncan BC’s Red Arrow Brewing comes their “Idle Hands Oaked Orange Ale”.  The beer pours a brown colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of orange, oak, orange rind and some vanilla.  The flavour of orange, more citrus, oak, earth, toffee and vanilla.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.66%.  I am not really not a fan of orange flavour in beer but I am always excited to get new beers from hard to get breweries in Vancouver.  This beer was not really my thing but I am sure that there will be lots of people that quite enjoy this.

Commercial Description:  This belly warming brew clocks in at 6.66% and will help ease the chill of those winter nights. A malty ale brewed with candied orange peel and oak, this beer has a warm embrace followed with flavours of orange blossom and vanilla bean.
