COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Northwest Red ale is malty and full bodied with a deep, rich red color. Proletariat Red reminds us that work is the curse of the drinking class!

While this red isn’t the world’s best its not a bad one either. It pours a kind of muddy river red, tastes slightly on the bitter side. Really pleasing hop odors when you open it.

Draught at The New Old Lompoc 5th Quadrant. From notes. A bit like an amber ale but with less body and a bit more hopping. Some malt flavor. Good balance.

Serving: from tap at The Beer Junction. Aroma: lightly piney hoppy. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, flat, amber/orange body. Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and lightly acidic finish with chocolate overtones and average duration. Palate: medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: a great beer. I would like to drink this again.

drpimento (2221) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Not bad. Poured this at a good teemperature with a smallish, light tan, foamy head that soon settles out and a bit of lace. Color is an amber red with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is hop, malt, hint roast. Flavor’s like nose, touch on the dry side, raisins, grain, carbonic tang and bitter up front and the bit of sweet in the back. Body is ok, but carbonation is a little soft. Finish is like flavor, quite long and very boozy.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a dark cream head. Toasted malt aroma. Toasted malt and light caramel flavor. Medium bodied. Toasted malt and caramel linger with light backing hops.

tia (887) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Tap. Copper with white creamy head and decent lacing. Smells very fresh- like soap. Not too sweet, nice light hoppiness. Not too heavy, light dry finish.

PorterPounder (5491) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Portland, Or - John’s Market Place - 22 oz bomber. Medium copper pour, light off-white head, brief lacing. Nutty aroma, some fresh lake water notes as well. Flavor has some ripening vegetable notes, faint toffee, a hint of chocolate. Thinnish mouthfeel. Not impressed.

5000 (6265) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle:   Tawny amber, moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft grainy nose, a little bit of cocoa and nuttiness.   Toasty on the tongue, light pale fruit, nutiness, with that smidgen of cocoa.   A little dry, not as full bodied as I would like but still somewhat smooth.   Finishes bready, toasty, soft nuts and a bit of mealiness.   Lingering dry cocoa like notes after the finish.   Decent Amber, almost coming across as a Brown at times.
