Well, I ain’t even gonna be shy about it, I loved this beer. It has a pretty shitty rating but I loved it. I am still curious as to why ’Red Ale" is not a style and must be classified as an Amber when it clearly stands apart. Firstly, this brew is a pretty redhead, a rusted gold with a long lasting head. A wonderful bouquet of burnt toffee, barnyard, fresh bread and buckwheat honey awaits the nose. It is quite sweet and very malty, exactly how I like my reds unless they claim to be Red IPAs or some such hoppy style. Not too bubbly and smoothness like silk make it a pleasure to drink. I’d raise this pint any day.

pours unclear dark golden, red tint, with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. toasted caramel and fruity maltiness - surprising hint of chocolate, dry fruity liquor - berries, bland herbal grassiness, light earthy notes, very chalky and mineral. light carbonation, light body - a tad watery; short and bland yet sort of balanced grassy-herbal finish. weak amber but then again inoffensive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Caramel and light grains. Clear copper with a nice beige head. Malty light cocoa and a rich finish. Nice but a little odd for an amber.

On tap at the Ottawa beer fest. A clear light gold with a soapy head & a earthy malty aroma. Medium-light bodied with a sweet somewhat sugary taste plus some grassy/earthy notes. A boring lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear, caramel/amber with a one finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma has notes of caramel, bread, and a touch of fruityness. Perhaps an English yeast. Taste is balanced. Slight bread, caramel, a hint of hop spicy and chocolate/roast, and a short aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall an easy drinking brew. Mild flavours that would probably not offend anyone.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour at the cottage off of Lake of Bays comes on yet another cloudy day. My goal tomorrow is to hit that cool little pizza place in Dorest & grab one of their fire tower pizzas & a can of crisp pilsner & have us a picnic. Wait, why am I writing about this in my beer rating? Cuz there’s nothing much going on here. Pours meh into the glass. It’s sweet & malty, with a suggestion of powdery chocolate. No worries, as I’m only going to drink 1/3 of this can before I stick it up the ass of a chicken & throw it onto the BBQ with another, more tasty brew in hand.
