COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nimbus Red Ale is a rich, medium-bodied American-style amber ale. Known for its sophisticated mouth feel and exceptional drinkability, our Red Ale is a true classic. Copper-hued and well-balanced, Nimbus Red Ale has a lightly sweet taste enhanced with the flavor of four different malt varieties and flaked barley. We brew this beer with handpicked Chinook and Cascade hops. This combination gives our Red a mild malt sweetness and a relatively dry, aromatic finish. Never bitter, Nimbus Red is sure to please the beer lover who enjoys lighter flavors and a lower alcohol content. It's crisp, refreshing taste has made our Red a fixture at major sporting events throughout Southern Arizona.

On draught at Nimbus. Pours a clear red-copper color with off white head. Aroma is caramel malts, pine, resin. Taste is sweet with some light bitterness. Lighter bodied with a slick texture. Not bad at all.

Like a heavily toasted ipa or American pale. Very nice hop presence when fresh. Good stuff.

Amber pour, looks cloudy at first, but that’s more because of large bubbles sticking to the glass and rising from the bottom; once that settles it looks more clear. The head didn’t last long. Light malty aroma. Initial flavor is a blend of malt and hop, that gives way to almost a floral finish. Its easy to drink, though with a hint of bitter throughout. Not bad -- a bit more flavor than a typical amber, but nothing really stands out either.

TURDFERGUSON (4018) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2011
Bottle on the disc golf course. Beer always tastes better while playing a round of frolf. Big malt, sharp hops, slightly metallic. A little sweet. Not bad.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2011
[Tap] Pours a rusty amber color with a nice cap of off white head. Aroma of bready malts, astringent hoppiness and vegetables. The flavor was better, with mostly caramel/bread and sharp hoppy notes. Not too bitter, but the hop varieties seemed to clash a little in here. Lingering sweet roll and dry light spice finish. Lingering lacing looked pretty good. Pretty standard.

Draft at Nimbus. Pours clear reddish-amber, thin to medium off-white head, solid lacing. Nose is creamy, dusty, light hop aromas, Flavours of light creamy-coffee notes, red fruit, light hop spice and bitterness. Nice for a red ale.
