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.

HIGHB4LL (773) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Wibur’s. Appearance: finger slightly off-white head, copper color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: heavy floral and moderate citrus hops, caramel, light spent malt aroma. Palate: light medium body, average carbonation, sticky texture on the finish and also dry. Taste: sweet caramel maltiness dominates the front, slight metallic notes similar to a red ale as well, but not out of place, then into a citrus and floral hoppiness that grows and lingers, but is not really affronting. Overall, one of the better pale ales I think I have had in a long time, super good, though not the most drinkable. For style, a bit off, but as a beer, amazing.

ajnepple (2882) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2015
12 oz bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Copper and clear appearance with a large and sticky beige head. Hoppy aroma of pine, grass, citrus, floral notes, light herbs, a touch of hop resin and light malts (caramel, toffee). Flavor is spicy hops, moderate bitterness and light sweetness. Medium body with a crisp feel and a lingering, light dry finish. Pretty clean and easy to drink. A solid pale ale.

Dainis (16) - Riga, LATVIA - DEC 29, 2014
Nice aroma of sweet malt and hops. Tastes a bit dry, with nice amount of hops and a bit of malt. Nice (bitter) aftertaste and it grows as beer gets warmer (over 15C). Very drinkable and overall good.
