Formed in the 1980s, Slayer is a world-famous thrash metal band from the USA and one of the "big four" thrash metal names alongside Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax. When Swedish brewer Nils Oscar Company proposed creating a beer in their image, the group jumped at the idea and thus Slayer 666 Red Ale was born.
This Amber Ale is made with five different malts for a strong, double-bass underpinning. El Dorado and Mosaic hops add tone and character in pitch-perfect harmony.
Slayer 666 Red Ale pours shredded copper with red undertones and a rich, lasting beige head.
The aroma is marked by floral hops with riffs of red berries, a caramel chorus and spicy notes.
Bitter citrus, berries, hay and floral notes come together to form an edgy, aggressive flavour.
A great beer for metal fans and steely palates!
