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.

355ml can pours a pale golden amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles quite quickly leaving some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and caramel. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a surprisingly generous citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the tongue. I was quite stunned with the nice balance of flavors in this brew.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2009
Bottled at pre-RBJG festivities in Kyoto. Hazy golden, minimal head. Perfumy apricot aroma. Mid-dry with clean, yet chewy crystal malt-like profile. Inviting, but a little sterile until orangey hops brings it to life. Finishes with medium bitterness.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2009
Can. Clear golden-amber with 2 finger head that quickly disappears. Mild hop aroma. Taste is slightly sweet malt and mild hops. Although not appearing overly carbonated, it gives me almost a burning sensation on the tip of my tongue, which was not expected. Decent otherwise.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - JAN 21, 2011
Decent clear dark gold body with a modest pillow of thick head on top. Soft aroma of lemony malts and plenty of hops. Flavour is a bit of bready malt followed by a modestly hoppy finish. Good dry palate. Well done and very drinkable.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Can from Rodney Kibzey at Longshot judging tasting. Pours a pleasing copper with a sticky head. Nose is on the piney side with caramel malts coming through. Faint citrus peel as well. Taste has a bracing bitterness that gets muddled with the malt profile. Not a huge fan of crystal malt and this seems to reinforce that idea. Not a bad beer, just nothing really that great. Okay.

asheft (2476) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
[on tap at the Alibi room] Slightly toasty caramel/toffee aroma with butterscotch and pear accents. Clear amber under a lasting, flannel, off-white blanket. Toasty, slightly diacetyly flavour with toffee and spicy hops. Medium bitterness with slight nuts and bread crust and no pale ale character. Medium body, moderate to medium carbonation, quite a bit of nutty bitterness in the finish.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
(Une courtoisie de papat444) Une petite mousse qui flotte sur une robe dorée. Un nez intéressant de houblons aux consonances tropicales. Des fleurs citronnées. Un parfum malté qui s’insère avec délicatesse. Un goût mal défini. Des houblons qui ne laissent que de très courtes flaveurs. Un caractère amérisant des cultivars qui est plus ou moins présent. Une bouche un peu mince. Un pétillement correct. Une texture légère. Une finale qui laisse quelques pointes amères fruitées et légèrement résineuses.

Pours a golden orange with a fluffy white head that laces nicely. Nose is floral and sweet. Hop profile is nothing special, I had high hops as their IPA is so good and this beer is a bit of a let down.
