Rosa (Revolution)

Kelly's Pub is a good Lincoln Park pub with a nice tap selection. It looked decent inside, but I couldn't help but sit on the patio. It's well shaded, providing comfort even on the hottest days. The L racing overhead really made you feel like you were in the city. I really didn't mind it so much. It provided breaks in the conversation.

This hibiscus ale was the perfect thirst quencher on a Chicago summer day after the Taste of Lincoln Avenue. It was enough to inspire a ride down to the pub for more. I can't resist Revolution on tap.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This dark-pink brew had a floral aroma. It was rounded off with a malty spice. It was like delicious hibiscus tea! Floral and citrus.

Taste: It tasted as it smelled. It was a perfect combo. The maltiness reminded me that this was more than tea. I'll take malt over honey any day. It was so light and refreshing. It's an easy-drinker with floral substance.

From the Revolution site:
A highly drinkable ale steeped with hibiscus flowers and a touch of orange peel for a natural tartness and slight pink hue.
