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!

Ungstrup (29223) - 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.

harrisoni (13598) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2006
On tap at New Old Lompoc, NW Portland. Amber/red with beige head. Good amber beer, nice hops, slightly nitro feel. Bit stripped, fruity malt, berry fruits. Hop, just a bit artificial. I thought an ale didn’t have hops? This is a nitro amber surely?

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2011
Bottled 0,65l (bought from Portland)
Deep red color, small off-white head. Caramelly, bready aroma. Medium-bodied, soft palate. Front is caramelly, then some toasted, ryeish maltyness. Finish has some hops and alcohol. Decent "Imperial Red" (err... working class red I mean).

Draft at 5th Quadrant. Aroma of caramel. Taste has lots of malt but pretty good balance.

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 16, 2011
I wonder why an amber is classed as IPA. On to the investigation of a bomber from Big Star in Seattle. Pours ruddy amber with a slight beige head. Smells like light roast malt without much hop. Flavor is moderately roasted malt with not much hop. This is not an IPA IMHO. Pretty blah amber IMHO.
