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.

Benzai (11360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle @ home. Clear dark orange to amber color, full sized off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma has faint hops and is quite malty. Taste malts, a bit dusty hoppy, decent hop bitter and softly bitter. Suitable body and carbonation. Decent APA.

Bright clear amber beer, bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is dry and has a fine minerally crispness. Thin malts with a little toffee but not much sweetness. Mild marmalade hops. Sharpish pine. Light minerally finish. The basis of a well hopped Amber but it’s a little thin.

Acid303 (568) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - SEP 15, 2015
35.5cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours amber with medium white frothy head. Aroma is earth, herbs, resin and hints of caramel. Taste is the same, both hops and malts are very well balanced. The long spicy finish seems rather short, but it is dry and there’s almost no sweetness left on the palate, which is ideal. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Very good job!

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2015
12oz bottle Rudat via Derer, bb10/2015... Elegant red copper pour. Alas this is one of those transatlantic ale imports from the West Coast that loses a lot in aroma in transition and cross-distribution to online shops: much has been lost and both condensed and thinned out into refined sugar crystal malts (cf. cans of Jai Alai that make it over), with a touch of berry shrub, wood, wet bark. Still packs a dry-elegant pine punch in taste over red copper malts: berry peel, dried citrus rinds and an assortment of woody pines join measured thin fruit caramels, towards again a dry bitter finish. (Chinook?)

katrinaez (783) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2015
A really nice red pale combo. Good orange red coloring. Scent is heavy with hops and malts. Taste has standard red favor and nice balance of hops, not over the edge. Tap

Panzerfaust (679) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - SEP 1, 2015
12 fl. oz. bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white fluffy head that laces well leaving a small film. Aroma is cleanly hoppy, grassy and a little bit spicy. Hints of hay, green tea, light citrus and herbs. Solid grainy malts are felt through retronasal. Taste is bitter and citrusy, crisp and refreshing, like a half-IPA or a heavy-bodied Pilsener. Not much on the malt department, but tightly bitter. Medium body, lively carbonated. Quaffable and very refreshing. Easy drinking and sessionable. Good APA.

bottle at home. poured a darker orange colour with a slight white head. floral aroma in the nose, just a slight fruit notes of peach and pineapple, but fairly fainted. slight malty. it’s missing that extra kick!

dark orange light resinous aroma, effervescent and light with cream, some pineapple in here but it leaves a lot to be desired.

Idiosynkrasie (5331) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear amber colour with huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Floral, fruity hoppy aroma, a touch of red berries, caramel malty background. Taste is moderately sweet malty, simultaneously dry, fruity hoppy, notes of red berries, caramel malty background. Rather more traditionally English than American in its PA character.
