COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Racer Classic Pale Ale is hand-crafted in small batches using Mariss Otter barley from England and hops from Washington’s Yakima valley. This big and bold pale ale has a citrusy aroma and a full, malty body, giving it a distinctive character that will inspire the beer connoisseur in all of us. A good choice paired with any favorite meal.

(Can from Rum Runner) Pours light amber with three fingers of foamy off-white head. Aroma is fresh, sweet and fruity, with hints of caramel and pine. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, light bodied, some light pebbliness. Lots of foamy patches of lacing. Flavor of mild, sweet fruit and caramel with bitterness building on the back end leading to a medium-mild bitter bite in the finish.

Spab (2128) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
355 ml can from Premier Wine & Spirits (Halifax). Pours a clear orange colour with small-medium sized white head. Citrus hops and crystal malt aroma. Similar taste although hops really dominate. Light-medium body. Moderate, slightly spicy bitterness in finish. Good.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Pale orange, decent head. Aroma is sweetish malts and a grapefruit citrus hop. Flavor matches, decent balance. Not much to say here, just sort of a standard APA. Nice that it is available in a can though.

JulienHuxley (2515) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2010
Can. Nice caramel colored pour with white head. Light citrusy aroma, white grapes and something a bit metallic. Taste is malty, slightly fruity with just a bit of bitter hop presence. Palate is quite carbonated, overly so. Decent and refreshing, but don’t go out of your way.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2010
What a beer. The IPA is better than this pale, but I was still blown away. Aroma of caramel malts, resinous hops with citrus notes. Huge mouthfeel with moderate carb. and amazing hop taste.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2010
Pours Clear amber with a thick white head. Nice hoppy aroma cascade and other pacific north west hops. Nice mouth feel. Thick and rich this is a great pale ale. Perfect balance very fresh and hopy.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - JUL 9, 2010
12 oz can pours a marigold yellow with a fine haze of head which leaves a thick lacing. Aroma is grassy and crisp with a follow up of sweet hay. Palate is simple - not complex. Little distinction in the front palate, with a strong middle of hops and a blossom-y finish. Follow up is a hoppy aftertaste. Not bad, middle-of-the-road beer that is drinkable with fun art on the can, but not necessarily one of the best of its style. Not the worst either though.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2010
This one has very obvious hops presence. Nice head on pour, golden brown looking, very clear. not a lot of head. Very nice hop flavour that builds until it is just a little bitter and fades away cleanly. This is really more like a pale IPA. I like it!

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2010
12 ounce can from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a medium offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter citrus hops with some resin and chemical notes. The taste is pale bready malts with bitter citrus hops. Thin-medium bodied and just a touch watery. Not impressed at all.

Slipstream (1932) - USA - JUN 25, 2010
An atmosphere of good cheer prevails. Silly label on the can. There is a celebratory head of fluff on an orange-amber pour that sinks pretty quickly. Light orange peel aroma. This is a pretty smooth PA with a good dose of orange pith flavor - it makes for a tasty ale.
