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.

Clear amber with a bright tan head that drops with relative ease. Caramel and toffee support a rich, piney scent. Hops are the primary player in flavor with lots of pine sap. Bitterness finishes nicely into something clean, dry, and refreshing. A darker pale ale that balances out with a solid West Coast hop profile.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of hops, grapefruit and stale bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Grassy, herbal hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Taste was improved as beer warmed up. Overall it is a good brew

Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Bronzey amber pour with a lingering sullied white head. Sweetish beak with some hoppage and caramel malts in the mix. Flavour was a similar yarn with notes of wood, fruits and grain. The hops rescued this from mediocrity. Ok overall but not stellar. Put me in mind of a kind of ’solid’ that was prevalent back in the day.

Oh yes. The aroma is like a punch of caramel malt in the face. The taste is softer and a bit damped down but still well balanced. A really classy beer.
