Fort Collins Red Banshee Ale Returns Redux: EOT Beer NEws

The following is an official press release from Fort Collins Brewery:

(Fort Collins, CO) – The Fort Collins Brewery is excited to announce that their full time brew, Red Banshee may have the same ruby hue, but will hold a bolder taste releasing Friday.

FCB released a statement Monday, “Just when you think you know Red Banshee, you don’t. She may have the same edgy look, but our daredevil has recreated herself using a German alt yeast strain to let her biscuit and caramel personality shine through. Saying goodbye to Chocolate malts and increasing her hop profile, Red Banshee is a true madcap you can’t resist falling for.”

An eye-catching red ale and caramel malt aroma with a touch of citrus notes punctuate the pleasant sweetness of this brew. Wheat malt coalesces with the earthy flavor of Willamette hops for a hauntingly beautiful combination.

ABV: 5.5%
IBU: 33
SRM: 18

Red Banshee, around since 2008 has been one of the original full time brews in FCB’s lineup. It received a Silver Medal in the American Red Category at the 2o12 US Open Beer Championships.

Red Banshee will be available to FCB’s 22-state distribution year-round in 6-packs and on draft, along with the Brewer’s Lunch Box, a variety 12-pack.
