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.

Grassy hops, citrus and some sweet malt in the aroma. Dryish malt at first, followed quickly by citrus. Floral hop finish.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Quite a good pale ale, nice citrus-y aroma, balanced with a grapefruit and copper flavor. Not too bad. I enjoyed this one quite a bit!

It's been awhile since i had a beer with a distinct hop taste. It wasn't overly hopped, but the taste was not certainly watered down. Some citrus notes also added to the flavor of this beer. Golend in color, with almost no head. Mainly malts on the aroma with some floral notes.

Golden, thin head. Aroma is flowery and from perfume. Has a soapy feeling, and flavor from citrus and elder. A little thin, and with a sweet finish.

Bottle: reminds me of another beer I'm not impressed with, Red Tail Ale. if this is an amber I'll call it mediocre as a pale Ale it's pretty yucky. Murky, with a bad marriage of malt and hops.

A very light head. A great appearance and taste. A little bite in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2004 rerate: refreshing, hoppy, clean, but rather thin; finishes with a dry, lingering, spicy bitterness; not my kind of brew, but could be quite good on a hot summer's day going fishing or paddling......

Orange, somewhat hazy. No head. Aroma from citrus and hops. But also some fruits without getting sweet. Flavor is from citrus and elder. The hops come through in a quite nice way.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2005 Cranberry-orange and bubbly with thin coating head. Aroma of molasses, cranberry and some other nondescript red fruit. Mild, dusky hopping. Dry, lightly malty flavor, cherries, buttery hops, and a slightly burnt/ashen flavor. A refreshing, cleansing finish.
