COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
n 1985, McMenamins became the first brewery in the U.S.A. to legally use fruit in the creation of ales. While many other breweries have followed suit, we still make this Ruby exactly as we first did: Light, crisp and refreshingly fruity. Over 55 pounds of hand-macerated, fresh, whole raspberries are used in every batch. Taste the original!

Malts: Pale Malt
Hops: Chinook
Fruit: Whole Raspberries

Draft - Pale malts and some biscuit. Cloudy yellow gold with a decent white head. Raspberry and not to sweet but jammy. Typical for what it is.

Pours very light almost clear gold. Minimal head. Nose is of rotted berries. Taste is generally sweet, not fruit out side of when I burp, then I get some raspberry on the back flow. Light body.

"an interesting light fruity beer with some earthy hops and just a touch of tartness. raspberry is the main fruit component, and they do it justice here. pretty standard beers for the most part, but this one was cool."

RedSox2004 (1397) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Cranberry red with a small off-white head and modest lace. Tart raspberry flavors offset anything else going on. Light body, lively carbonation and a fruity finish.

maxwelldeux (4102) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draught in a flight at the Mill Creek brewpub. Pours a very cloudy copper color. Nose is light, with a little bit of berry coming through. Taste is slightly sweet, with a lot of grains and malt in there, but effectively no fruit taste. Which is odd for a fruit beer...

One of my favorites from the lineup, smooth, light and drinkable. Nice full body, similar to German Hefe , slick and smooth. Sweet juice essence makes it refreshing.
