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.

Kind of dark (pumpkin color) for a pale ale. This is a brew for those of us who love hops. Had both on tap and from the bottle; tap seemed more fruity and the bottle more hoppy. But there could have been a lot of variables. Liked the lingering bite in the finish.

Medium amber hue. Spicy floral nose. Light beige head sticks around for a bit. Light roasted grain support big assertve hops, all floral with strong bitterness. Medium bodied, very drinkable...A pleasant session pale.

I agree with the description whole heartedly. This beer is on the almost an IPA, but is more balanced towards the malty side. Excellent beer no matter what you call it. Cheers!

What impressed me about this beer was the pleasant balance of hops, definitely noticeable, but not overpowering. A very slight hint of citrus in this beer. Very nice copper color with a full head.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2003 Nice balance between the malts and hops, but it's missing something....I just can't pin my finger on it. Head is minimal, and it feels fairly thin in the mouth. A nice APA, but not the best example I've had.

Wow this one is a winner and what a keeper !!! I would love to have this one on tap at home. Really nice hop aroma and flavor that lingers on the tongue with a nice carbonation. Malt is present in the taste, but allows a certain depth when you swallow and taste. Well done and on my list of favorites. I have had this on cask and it is even better.

Hoppy to high heaven! Very fruity-sweet on the palate intially, then balances out a bit as it goes down. Very tasty indeed.

Light copper with a full, blooming head. Aroma of freshly picked hops. Smooth, lightly malted body with soft bitter hoppy finish. The head leaves rings of lace as it subsides. This is a very drinkable, well brewed beer.

Light reddish copper in color. A bit of citrus in the nose. Hops are quite evident, but not overpowering. Very nice!

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2003
Slightly hazy red body with a full white head. Head quickly diminshed with some lacing.
Aroma of hops but not the typical West coast citrus aroma. A bit of a greener smell than that. Hints of yeast too.
Nice amlty beginning with a well-balanced hops bite. Tastes like Cent. hops. Not spicy in a noble hop way but a nice, hop aftertaste.
Smooth on the tongue and full bodied. Nice balance.
