Brewed and dedicated to the believers of Ninkasi. Rich dark malt complexity is balanced by a plentiful hop presence bringing together perfection in every sip. Who knew believing had so many rewards.

Pours a vibrant orange and copper mix color. Aroma is of dark malt mixed with clean hops. A slight sweetness to the taste, hint of caramel and raisin. The aftertaste leaves a minor happy bitterness that is smooth and easy drinking. A clean delicious beer that has complex flavors with nothing overbearing.

Bottled: unk Pours clear blood orange flesh with a central dome and peripheral etch of light tan foam. Smells of some resiny hops, a bready rye like character and a touch of BO. Flavor is bitter with that nice red beer spicy character (I think this is from Special B malt...). A good dose of sweetened malts, some bits of tea hops and a cinnamon like finish that is longer than anticipated. Medium bodied with reserved carb and a bit of a dry finish. Nice enough beer, but I don’t buy it very often anymore due to the price hike (which is miniscule). Serving type: bottle 12-06-2012

on tap at the Provisions Market, wonderful dark ruby red pour with a frothy white head. Grassy hops taste with a bit of malt, really well blended, totally tasty beer.

DocJitsu (1002) - Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pours a vibrant, clear, copper-brown with a tan, sudsy head. Toffee, grassy nose. Smooth, wet mouthfeel. Toasty toffe, sweet fruity flavors with some grassy bitterness. Everything is well-blended.

Sammy (8760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Very strong and good malting. The hops went through a range of citrus to fruitiness as it warmed. Very lacy and large mocha coloured head. A nice take on the style, thanks Len.

Earthy, pulpy, tilled with dark chocolate notes. This red ale has sharpened horns. One of the better Ninkasi offerings, propelled by a fiery complexity.

On tap at Whole Foods Whole Lotta Brews Brewfest, malty but not sweet. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (835) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Pours CRYSTAL-CLEAR red with a nice white head. Aroma is some maltiness (caramel, breadlike) with a strong shot of hops. Initial taste is sweet maltiness trying to come through with a hop bitterness following to balance it all out. Light bodied with good carbonation. This is definitely a hop-forward red ale.

Out of the variety pack that Ninkasi offers. Rich malty taste with a hoppy finish. Not my favorite red ale.

2/23/2012. 22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, dried fruit, hops. Earthy notes with caramel. Not bad.
