COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malt and hops are beautifully married in this full-bodied, copper-red Pale Ale. Red Seal Ale is generously hopped in the traditional manner for a long, spicy finish.

CapFlu (5096) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
(Draught) Mondial de la Bière 2004. Orange-amber with a thin, thite head. No carbonation. Nose and flavour of cascade hops and oranges. Somewhat unexciting but not offensive.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2004
Light clear amber, off-white thin head. Very caramelic malty aroma, subdued hops, mild. Caramel oriented palate, honey even. Interesting toasty malt, rather sweet. Bitterness is light, slightly grapefruity. A bit watery body, too light anyway. I expected far more expressive hops, but after having their barleywine, I should have expected subtle hops and sweet malt. It's not a bad beer by any means, but it's very approachable.

Cascadey grapefruitiness and a filet of caramel subtly intertwined...Balanced all the way through, very quiet and drinkable...A feather in the pale ale world...

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2005 Just a trace of a head on top of this. Also, a little ring of head around the edge of the glass. The body is a light amber. Aroma is nice and inviting. Oranges, oak and roses all come out of the aroma. Taste is full and greasy with lots of carbonation. The taste is slightly soapy and has some orange peel bite. There are some malts, but hops definitey dominate the flavor. This is a very good session ale.

Pours a pale amber color with very little head. Still, decent looking. Smell of hops, vanilla, and orange. Taste is of orange with hops and a hint of caramel.

Copper colored lager. Had a small head with a slight malt aroma. A wonderful flavor. A great lager to enjoy

Extremely well hopped, but still Manage to retain a lovely maltiness. Quite straight forward, but stiill has an intriguing complexity . A beer that can be downed in one quick swill, but also a beer you can enjoy slowly over a long time. It’s unique.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Nice dark copper color,small head that faded quickly leaving a little behind but not much.Mildly malty aroma with a nice hop presence and citrus side coming through.The flavor was very nice with a decent but not over powering hop presence,grapefruit and a slight piney note but pretty weak.Not a bad brew at all,nicely done and easy to drink in a large volume.More then worthwhile having a few more around.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2004
Tap, Toronado, San Francisco (and later cask at the brewery tap house)- a bit odd in flavour, some citrus and caramel and tangy hops, a bit flat in flavour, simple and pretty easy to drink. Not bad though. Cask version was better.

Copper with weak white head. Hops give a grapefruit aroma but mildly so. Some floral, too. Body is on the light side. Taste was well-balanced. Some sweetness and some acidity. Nice drink.
