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.

JMerritt (1940) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Medium red-orange colored. Pours with a nice white head that is mostly diminishing down to a thin ring. Very lightly hopped citric (oranges) aroma. Flavor is thankfully a tad bit hoppier with a grainy hay/straw quality. Mildly sweet aftertaste. Good, but slightly overrated in my opinion.

JFGrind (1994) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Above average APA, just not as hoppy as other Cali breweries. Nice dark rediish color and hop aroma.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 Medium amber in hue with a creamy head. Fruity orange and peach hop nose coats a thick malt base full of caramel and brown sugar. Immediately bitter, oily and spicy in the mouth with a sweet follow through of rye bread and toffee before hops build again in the lengthy resinous finish. Nimble, oily but fluffy.

A delicious and intense balance of flavors.

12 oz bottle, best before 31 May 2009.

pored a ligt copper color with a med.off white lasting head aroma citus like a orange that is not very sweet, hops. flavor a little yeasty, fruity . enjoyed the bitterness after taste.after it warmed up it lost some of its appeal I guess Iíll have drink this a little faster or have it colder to begin with

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2004
This is a very good example of that west coast specialty "the American Pale Ale". Itís not as hoppy as SNPA and has that balance I crave.

jasonp (1573) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Nice assertive American Pale. Pours a copper color with a big off-white head. Taste is very hoppy/floral with grapefruit and decent malt balance. Extremely bitter, almost a little harsh. Mouthfeel is very full and round.

Aggie80 (808) - Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Beautiful color, red brown and clear. Some head and a bit of lace that fades quickly. Hops definitely take the forefront in flavor. Slightly citrus in the mouth.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Pours a glowing amber color, nice thick head of large bubbles,decent lacing. Sweet candy grapefruit, hoppy aroma. Medium body, soft and creamy mouthfeel, beautiful hoppy citrus and caramel flavors, a great session beer, very easy to down a few. I am glad to have this available again.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2004
Copper colour with a thick yellow tinted head that leaves some nice lacing. Spicy and malty aroma, caramel, some light citrus. Good malt profile, nice spicy hoppiness, and the perfect amount of bitterness. Notes of iced tea also come out of this. Finish is slightly bready. Good body. Very well balanced and quite tasty.

thegreenrooster (3977) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Pours a copper color with alomst no head. No real aroma and flavor is typical pale ale. Hops with some roasted malts in there. Ok but I still think this brew is SNPA minus more intense flavor.
