COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship, this Irish-Style Red Ale proudly won a gold medal at the 2000 World Beer Cup. A combination of 5 different malts and 3 hop varietals, carefully blended, results in a perfect balance. Full-flavored and medium-bodied, the Riptide Red provides surprising complexity for such an easy-drinking brew.

Caramel malt aroma all the way with a little pine hop presents. Nice dark red hue. Caramel malt taste and sweet. Not too complex. One note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355mL thanks to DedicatedToFun. Pours a clear amber with a thicker, yellow head. Nice lacework. Diacetyl nose with sweet strawberry candies. Taste is sudsy, dry, a bit sticky, with heavier sweet bread and toffee malt. Small toasted bread character, brown sugar, bready carbs. Not too bad.

Strong sweet malty aroma and dark translucent Amber color. The flavor is very palette and pretty thin, almost like a macro lager. kind of disappointing.

Dark reddish/amber color with a nice foamy head. Plenty of lacing. Very bready, malty aroma. Taste is a bit sour to start but mellows to a sweet malty finish. Clean and refreshing.

12oz bottle via micro beer of the month club - I like to try new beer, and this red ale by Casco is worth my time. Distinctive red ale aroma is not there, but silky smooth and does showcase a choice hop and malt balance.

12oz bottle pours a deep ruby with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee malts, with fruits. Taste of caramel and toffee malts balanced well with hop spice and ending with an earthy nutty bitterness. Very enjoyable!

Bottle courtesy of my boss, who picked this up for me randomly during a recent trip to Maine. Pours a deep almost-cherry red. Smells of caramel, toffee, sweet roast malts. Taste and mouthfeel are a bit thinner than I would’ve liked.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber to orange with a fully gone head. Aroma is roasted malty and breadish. Caramelish, roasted and slight metallic. Caramelish and medium dry to bitter into the finish. Bitter lasting impression.

Bottle at Nya Trols. Clear red/amber - white head. High high diacetyl aroma - light taste. Fruity. Caramel. Light hoppy. Bad.
