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.

Very smooth in the mouth. Rough, sour finish. Not something I would have again.

A great beer; nice pour and body, medium head. Made the Charleston Pale look frail when tasted side by side. A little too bitter for an ale - to the point that it almost compromises the flavor. Very citrusy - close to Rogue Santa’s Private Reserve. At the end of the day, this is a good beer.

Draft. Light copper color with a light head. Aroma of citric hops. Malty and a bit acidic. Quite citric. A typical APA.

Pours a clear copper color with a large 3-finger off-white head. The smell is a mild pungent citrusy hop. The taste includes the same plus a mild caramel background. It is a light to medium bodied brew and finishes just slightly dry. The flavor is not real complex yet it is very likeable. Perhaps a great session beer with character. I enjoyed it. Cheers!

Hard for me to rate this; my third or fourth beer, I was tired and I lost my pen and just am going on memory. Nice above-average pale ale with good balance, slightly more hoppy than usual and not very sweet; crisp tight finish.

BATLMULLET (127) - Highland, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2002
Very crisply hopped, almost "paper-y" is how I think about it. Not sure if that makes sense... Very well balanced though for what it is. Good golden amber color, with a white head. Somewhat well carbonated. No lingering bitterness whatsoever. When I am undecided as to my choice, I will pick this one almost by default. It’s what I would call a standard-bearer and is quite good either bottled or on tap.

Active foamy head. Dark copper-red color. Dry after taste- a bit akward though. A definitley unique beer however.
