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!

Solid, flavorful red ale. Malt aroma, which carries through strongly to the flavor. Some spiciness, but this is a distinctly malt-forward beer. But no hoppiness -- which surprises me considering it's labeled as a northwest red ale. Very smooth, very drinkable, and recommended. B+. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bomber from portland, or. Caramel malt aroma with notes of hops and spice. Pours pours reddish copper colored with one finger of off-white head with excellent retention and no lacing. Very malt forward flavor to start with the sweet caramel malt dominating to start. Finishes dry with a bit of the spice and hops coming through at the end. Nice, well balanced red. Definitely one of the best I've come across.

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.

Pours a darks reddish brown with a small off white ring. Aroma is caramel malts with an earthy hop prescence. Taste is a nice earthy hop bitterness with toffee and caramel malt backing. Nice beer.

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.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass. Pours a nice amber color with a smaller head. Nice complexity to the aromas of malts, toffee, caramel, and some bitter notes too. Good depth and very aromatic. Medium bodied with a real nice smooth and complete feel. Lacks a slight bit of depth and complexity but is very nice with flavors of caramel, toffee and a slight bit of malts. This was a real good red ale. Very enjoyable and very drinkable.

drpimento (2267) - 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.
