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
Specifications: Original Gravity: 1.038; Terminal Gravity: 1.005; Alcohol by Weight: 3.3%

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 11, 2007
Draft at Sherwood location. Arrived looking like pink grapefruit juice,, cloudy and pale pink color with little to no head. Raspberry dominates aroma, flavor is crisp and wheaty with berry and fruit notes and hints of hop. Medium body and gentle carbonation. Not bad for a summer cooler.

Hazy rasberry red color, small pinky head. Rasberry jam and stones aroma. Light bodied. Semidry flavor of rasberries. Nice refreshing rasberry beer.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at McMenamins Mill Creek, WA, 4.39% ABV
Muddy pinkish color with generous compact head. Light aroma of raspberries. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit weak; watery flavor, with hints of raspberries; very low bitterness.
Too simple.

RedSox2004 (1436) - 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.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2002
Very light, not much alcohol. Fruity too. Again, beer from McMenamins is too carbonated.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - FEB 2, 2003
rasberry yogurt aroma, watery and hoppy rasberry yogurt flavor, better balanced than most fruit beers at least

jsquire (3738) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2004
On tap at the Kennedy School pub. Funky pinky orange hazy color that reminded me of soda pop. Thin white head. It was very lively on the palate, like a berry flavored pop. Light and fruity. I don’t like light and fruity.

after4ever (6688) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Draft at the Mill Creek brewpub. Pours murky pink; looks just like pink grapefruit juice minus the pulp. Fizzy white foam atop. Smells hugely of raspberries, like breakfast syrup or drink concentrate. Kinda fakey that way. Watery, flat, sticky. Yuck.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2009
On tap at Eugene’s North Bend location. Grapefruit colored with very little head. Aroma of raspberries and sugar. It mostly tastes like grapefruit flavored sparkling water. Dry finish. Fairly weak on the palate.
