New South Brewing Waccamaw Red Ale, 5.8% ABV, brewed in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, dry-hopped with Cascade and Chinook hops is a west-coast style amber ale. Waccamaw Red Ale pours a deep red/orange murky color with sediment throughout the glass and a one and a half off white head that is somewhat quick fading, that gives off a piney hop aroma with faint caramel malts. The taste follows the nose with hoppy pine notes upfront and some nice but light caramel malt notes towards the middle of the mouth and the back. Waccamaw Red Ale finishes with a light caramel malt flavor with a big bitterness and a hoppy caramel aftertaste with a medium mouthfeel. After a few swigs of New South Brewing Waccamaw Red Ale, it starts to grow on you and starts being slightly enjoyable and gets a C+. You don’t really see a whole lot of hoppy amber ales out in the market. This New South Brewing Waccamaw Red Ale is a bit above average and it surprised me a bit. I don’t recommend that you rush right out to have it. But if you come across New South Brewing Waccamaw Red Ale try it. Please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
