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.

A very nice amber. Has a lovely coloring, and a medium size head to it. Nice lace on the glass as well. Not as hoppy as other ambers, which makes for a different taste, though not really what I'm looking for in an amber.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2003
Poured a nice amber/copper color with thick head and average lacing. Body was thicker than it appeared. Malts were sweet but also bready, followed by a sharper hop and a slightly metallic ending.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2003 From the bottle. Good nose. Copper color. Balanced hops and malts. Always a favorite. Even better at the brew pub.

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

jpknight22 (171) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2003
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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2003
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!
