Golden color with a taller, somewhat diminishing, fluffy off-white head. Aromas of pale malt, melon and light honey. The hops are in the background with light citrus and spice. Light malt and pear-like fruit flavors. Gentle bitterness. Well balanced. A very easy drinking pale ale. 3/11

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz single can as Red Betty Pale Ale, purchased at Wilbur’s Total Beverage. Medium to dark orange, slight hazy appearance with a lingering white head. Aroma of resinous hops, light pine and toasted malts. Similar flavor, adding a moderate hop bitterness. Average body with a light dry, lasting finish. OK, I guess, slightly harsh and possibly dated.

A fantastic pale ale. Big citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors that are supported nicely by a malty caramel driven backbone. Great stuff.
