1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tap at Mill Creek location; somewhat raspberry pop mid palate but very diluted; very thin to watery; hop aroma did not match lacking hop flavor; bartender stated this ruby is made with fresh raspberries and not an elixir (hence the water feel in my opinion); not enough fruit flavor to compensate; definitely shied me away from getting again. (#5)

Apricot nose, hazy khaki color. Sweet malt and raspberry taste, no bitter to counter the sweetness. Sopay mouthfeel. Actually OK an OK beer for what is intended but I don’t like what was intenden.

22oz bottle from my buddy Josh. Pale yellow with a pink hue. Faint raspberry aroma, almost sour tasting. Taste is raspberries, slight sweetness, different from the aroma. Easy drinking, not a big favorite.

Very pretty in a glass, and retains a moderate raspberry sweetness. More body would be nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
7/18/08 On draught at the Kennedy School. Aroma is candilike sweet fruit. Appearance is hazy pink with a medium maintained white head. Flavor is raspberry sweetness forward but not strong, and with almost no bittering. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a very light spritzy carb texture. Overall, the flavor of the base style and the raspberry are just too light.

On tap at Old St. Francis School in Bend. Pours ruby indeed. A fruity, light ale. Not too sweet like some, but also not very strong. A light, crisp low-alcohol sipper for the hot summer days.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap@McMenamins Grand Lodge. Hazy, pale pink body with a thin white head. Moderate fruity aroma of berries, actually a bit artificial. Flavor is light and fruity, like strawberry and watermelon in an almost bubblegum type flavor. It’s suppose to be real fruit and probably is, but for me it tasted like a light blonde with a dash of fruit syrup.
