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!

DuffMan (6440) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2010
Sampled at the SpringBeerFest in Portland. Dark dirty amber, fruity hop aroma. Palate is malt driven, toasty, with peachy hop character. Nice.

boFNjackson (4099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle... Poured reddish/amber with a bubbly, white head. Aroma of hops and malts. A tad over carbonated which didn’t support the fruity tones of the ale yeast. Hop bitterness lingered towards the end which was rounded out by a malt sweetness.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Red-hued amber with a decent head. Rich malty nose with a dusted quality that leans dismayingly closer to wet shoe. A lightly malty body. Ok for the proletariat, but not up to par for the discriminating boozer.

This was billed as a red when I had it on draft at the brewpub and I would agreee w/ the brewpub. This is a very nice red. Suprised to see the 56% rating.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Toast, toffee, some sweetness. Floral citrus hops in the aroma. Pours reddish amber. Toasty sweet toffee, light yeasty bubblegum, which is interesting to me. Peppery floral hops round out the finish in a medium way. Medium bodied, nice drinking ale.

anders37 (16250) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2008
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours a reddish amber color with a small off-white head. Fruity malty caramel aroma with some hoppy hints. Sweetish malty hoppy flavor with some hints of caramel. Sweetish malty hoppy finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

On tap at the Hedge House. Pours darker red, soft brown/mahogany hue, smooth off-white head. Sweeter red, warm caramel malt base with a soft fruitiness in the finish. It’s interesting that the red category kinda split off, those who are hoppy and those who refuse to be. I like that they stuck to the traditions and made a good beer that would replace most breweries "ambers". This has more character then the amber ales you find, more rich malt with a balanced finish.

Forward the Revolution. What a red ale, hoppier than its capitalist brethren. A little harder to find on tap.
