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

Ruby tinted pale orange body. Definitely plenty of raspberries, lots of creaminess as well. ripe fruits, sweet ant somewhat tart. Some hints of wheat as well. Body is watery and thin, but has a lively palate.

marcus (7230) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 14, 2008
This light amber ale poured with almost no head and a strong raspberry aroma. The flavor is way too watery and the fruit flavor is too light. But overall, it’s a decent refreshing drink.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2008
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.

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