This red ale has a blunt bitter body with some quick visiting malts. Not a unique flavor.

Citrus aroma w/ caramel & well toasted bread crust. clear dark headless amber. Thinner in the mouth than expected, & not much fizz. Malt flavor on the thin side w/ slightly metallic but not overwhelming hops. thin finish. On tap at multnomah Lab.

Not one of the worst red ales, but not the best. Reggie’s is a much better example. Similar to other styles put out and less full-bodied.

Lucky Lab kinda has their style, pronounced hops, very aromatic, but still maintains a great balance to keep them easy-drinking. This fits it perfectly, another great balanced beer, solid caramel malt flavor for the base, and a crisp citrus hop finish, all over a clear amber body with a tall white head.

As "Rose City Organic Red". Dark red, bright. Dark fruit, citrus, hint of breadcrust in the aroma. Rich, chewy crystal and pale malts, loads of citrusy, earthy, fruity hops. A rich, NoCal-ish red.

Last stop in Portland during ABA Beer Tour 07. On draught at the brewpub pours a clear reddish amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a ring and film top. Aroma of sweet Hawaiian bread with some pine and sweet apple. Taste is light, smooth with a sweet bready flavor. Finish is slightly metalic with a dry piney and bitter aftertaste.
