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.

DrnkMcDermott (2879) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2003 Bottled. Another 3-4 year old bottle from a friend's stash that ages nicely. In fact, it still reads "Ruedrich's Red Ale," whatever that means. Pours a rusty red color with some sediment swirled in. Caramelly taste, a bit tart like a hint of cherry. Hops grab attention a bit further down; they are mellowed but still Pale Ale spicy, and impart a touch of cider. A decent, slightly strong beer that keeps well with care.

egajdzis (5515) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Poured an orange amber color with a light white head and nice lacing. Citrus hop aroma of grapefruits. Smooth crisp taste included flavors of citrus, slight grapefruit and a sweet bubblegum aftertaste.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Pours a deep amber copper color, small but lasting head with decent lace. Aroma is hoppy in the APA vein. So far so good. Taste is very nice. Very balanced flavor between the hops and malt--that is what I look for in an APA and IPA. A sweet, dry and slightly bitter finish. Not quite at the top of the heap, but a fine APA

Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 1, 2003
This isn't really red, but rather orange-copper. It's lightly hopped and smoothly bittered. Surprisingly good!

odelay (37) - fuquay-varina, North Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2003
good, yes, but a bit soapy. decent kick though. not the best pale ale i've ever had, but no at all bad.

Jon123 (36) - Emmaus, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Bottle pours a dark amber color. Average head with OK lacing. This beer is well balanced but I prefer a little more kick (hops) at the end.
