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.

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
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.

ajnepple (2717) - 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.

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.

mike67 (841) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2014
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
