COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malt and hops are beautifully married in this full-bodied, copper-red Pale Ale. Red Seal Ale is generously hopped in the traditional manner for a long, spicy finish.

Transfer from BA review on 12-24-12- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy copper color with a one finger white head that fades quite fast. Upon dissipation the head leaves only a very light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of some caramel malt sweetness. This is mixed with a nice balancing aroma of a citrus and pine hop smell. Taste- The taste begins with a sweeter caramel and bready flavor upfront. These flavors are complimented by a pine hop flavor initially. Soon however there is an oncoming of some notes of a light fruit flavor as well as notes of a citrus hop. The citrus hop grows stronger as the taste advances to the end where it is joined by a light earthy hop flavor to leave a semi sweet and bitter flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average or just below in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is quite average. The average carbonation is a good feel for both the hop and caramel flavors, while the average to just below average body did make it very easy drinking. Overall – A nice red ale with a good balance of hop and malt. A good drinking brew.

Impressively balanced with caramel and citrusy (lemon) flavors. Nice hop presence which is sometimes lacking in other ambers. Off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly but maintains decent lacing. Repeatable.

Den där röda Sälen är ganska god men är väl inget man kommer att berätta för barnbarnen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Espuma muito boa, persistente, de alta retenção e muito cremosa. Possui coloração laranja avermelhada. No nariz equilíbrio entre o biscoito do malte e o herbal do lúpulo. Na boca corpo leve, além de um leve amargor que se prolonga no retrogosto, juntamente com um biscoito pronunciado. Cumpre seu papel de equilíbrio entre malte e lúpulo.
