cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2005
A reddish-orange beer, with a nice head and piny, spicy, malty aroma. The flavor is hoppy up front, in the middle, and in the finish; malt plays second fiddle here. A bit of sweetness that you would expect in a red ale, but decent bitterness too. Tasty.

AWISLguy (1695) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle from BrookFalls Discount. Amber orange pour, lightly foamy off-orange head leaving lots of lace. Aroma has fruits, pine and a bit of soap. Taste is of pine, tangy herbs, berries and some citrus. Sweetly fruity but also bitter. 12.8

In a time when Pale Ales are being hopped extravagantly for pungent aromas and bitter flavors, Red Seal Ale is a Pale Ale thatís happy to be just that: a Pale Ale. Donít get me wrong, Red Seal has plenty of hops to remind you that itís West Coast ale. Yet, the aroma offers a preliminary hint of the balance between malt and citrusy hops. The flavor is bitter, but the malt isnít overshadowed at all. Mouthfeel is beautiful. This ale is crisp and clean in a way that reminded me a bit of Pliny. (Hey, I said a bit - I know youíve got to be careful with that comparison.) This red-orange brew has all the right stuff.

Copper colour, small white head. Weak aroma of caramalts. Taste has a medium sweetness and a metallic bitterness in the finish. Tart and somewhat dry.

razzanof (70) - Leavenworth, Kansas, USA - MAY 20, 2015
From a bottle. Beer pours amber with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is lacking - very malty. Taste is overwhelmed by a grassy, malty backbone. Not a good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
