Birrificio Grado Plato Strada San Felice is the Italian brewery's American Amber/Red Ale, which they age in Channing Daughter's Pazzo barrels. At 8.00% BV, Strada San Felice (which just means, San Felice Street) pours out a hazy amber brown with red highlights and a tall beige head that laces as it settles. The nose of this red ale is of chestnuts, sweet toffee, dark fruits (dates and raisins), toasted malts, brandy and a light spiciness. The taste follows the nose, offering notes of chestnut, toffee, brown sugar, toasted malts, raisins, and spice. The mouthfeel is a medium fullness with moderate carbonation and a pleasant, warm alcohol finish. Look for Birrificio Grado Plato Strada San Felice on a rotating schedule in bottles and on-tap, and try it in a pint glass or mug at 40-45 degrees F. This Red Ale pairs well with sharp cheeses, beef, poultry or fish dinners.
