Marked by a distinctive malty flavor from the malt components in the blend, Cleary Red is a darker ale that even pale ale-beer drinkers will find extremely palatable.

Sweet rather than hoppy. Thin-medium mouthfeel. Copper colour. I think the weakest in their lineup, particular as only taste was some caramel malt and, but people ask for a red.Faint aroma, faint bitterness finish. Bit dry aftertaste with sugar.At the brewpub.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Very mild aroma offers crystal malt and herbal hops. Clear amber-tan coloured body with a low but lasting, off white head. Biscuity malts are joined by crystal malts with some herbal hops and mild bitterness. Pleasant if undifferentiated from the pack. Medium light body with moderate carbonation. Sampled at GABF 2005.

Had this one on draught in Wausau, Wisconsin. Medium copper color, medium head, little nose, caramel taste but not a whole lot going on here.

A good Amber/Red, some good body and color. Not much head. Goes great with the Butcher’s Challenge.

One of the two better beers I had at this brew pub. Tasty with a bit of fruit taste to it. Nothing stellar, but nothing at this brew pub is.

ElGaucho (2393) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Faint roasted malt aroma. Mostly red in color; rust. Light tan, diminishing head. Roasted malt flavor. Undercarbonated. No hops. If this was cask-conditioned or a light I might understand its understated blandness. It might compare well with either Sam Adams Light or Leinie’s Amber light. $3.25 for a 22oz bottle? Disappointing.

Well made red ale with caramel malt predominating. Nothing especially great or noteworthy. Quite drinkable

muzzlehatch (4840) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Draft (sample), Wausau WI location, July 03. Really, no nose at all. Could be Perrier. Light but malty, almost no hops, cherry hints, very smooth and mild. Will please the Michelob crowd.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2002
You get a whiff and a nudge of toasted action to the malt, but everything else is bad, old socks steeped in vinegar - and I had it on tap in Escanaba.
