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!

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.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2008
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is sweet hoppy. The flavor is sweet malty combined with a note of hops, leading to a dry bitter finish.

Tap at bailys taproom in portland. Pours a deep reddish color with a white head. Tastes of sweet sweet malt. The barrel aging really shined bright in this one. I could not taste much hops in this brew, only malts, sweet malts to be exact.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Draft at New Old Lompoc Brewery, Portland, OR. Small ivory head that was mostly lasting, virtually no lacing, transparent, no carbonation observed, and a red hue. Nose was malty, caramel, hoppy, and nutty. Flavor was sweet, malty, nutty, and hoppy. Mouthfeel was smooth. Medium body. Quaffable, decent brew.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Draught. Burnished copper. Faint hoppy aroma. Hoppy body with grapefruit, but not what you might expect from an IPA. Nutty, dry finish.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Draft sample at hedge hoouse, Portland. Dirty copper with thin white head. Nutty aroma and some sour notes in the nose and initial flavor. Thin but satisfying, nothing bad, but that sour kept showing. The grapefruit (although light) flavor of the hops shared with the almond extract-like dryness at the finish. Interesting. I almost ordered a pint to further investigate, but that C-note was punishing my palate.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 4, 2007
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent softly carbonated . The aroma was malty and bready. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of nutty brown malt and Irish red malt. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Skyview (5181) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2007
On draught at the 5th Quadrant during ABA Beer Tour 07. Pours a clear coppery red amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind an off-white ring. Aroma of light caramel malt, roasted nuts and some filberts. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied the some roasted nut and grapefruit flavors. Finish is very dry with a nutty aftertaste.
