Blood of the Unicorn clocks in as BA’s #12 Red Ale in the World, but fans like @patrickmcshaffrey on Instagram simply call it “the best Red Ale, period!”
Grab a sip of this craveable hop treat, and the amber pour welcomes you with potent citrus notes and a touch of resinous pine. Then, waves of sweet malts greet your taste buds with comforting notes of toasted bread, baked nuts, and a touch of caramel.
