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.

Amber in color, with 1 finger off-white head. Delicate pine aroma, very fresh smelling. Tastes faintly of hops, bread, slight buttery sweetness, orange peal, other citrus notes. Medium body. On the lighter side, but good

Pours amber with little head retention. Grainy, malt nose. Malt/hop balance on the palate through to a bitter, dry, refreshing finish. Overall, just okay, a session beer not to think about.

GG (2176) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
12oz bottle - Aroma - fruity, hoppy aroma, light vinous notes, well dry hopped it seems Appearance - amber body, thick and creamy 2-finger head, long retention Mouthfeel - thin bodied, light-medium carbonation Flavor - caramel flavor with copious amounts piney hops to keep it NC. Not complex in any way, but its not trying to be. Overall - one of the better amber ales available, balance is defined here.

"more bitter with tighter carbonation for a different mouthfeel than the other good pales, but definitely one of the best. the pub usually has a casked aged (very mellow) version as well, if youre not into the bitter, aromatic brews as much."

ARH (487) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Sweet roasted malt aromas strike the nose first followed by floral and roasted notes. Toffee, berries, citrus, a light spicy, slight yeast, sugar, and cream are also present in minor tones. The beer appears oily amber orange color with a slight haze and a soft foamy, off-white head. A modest, messy puffy lace is left on the glass and a good amount of head is retained with a big cream puff island and a medium thick, sudsy ring. The taste is a balanced, medium light sweet and bitter. The medium-light bodied beer has a thin and sticky texture with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Spice and caramel come through on the palate with a floral, citrus, and spice finish. Its dry and lightly astringent with a light, but long lingering, spiciness and malty aftertaste.

varanid99 (537) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2014
Golden pour with a thin but long lasting off white head. Malty aroma, a little herb/floral note too. Sweetish, caramel, light floral and citrus taste. Nice, easy drinking, not too complicated.

Sunlander (14) - SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2014
Couldnt find much aroma today. A little fruitiness, mango, ripe fruit. Beige thick head. Brown reddish body. Nice taste, nicely carbonated, slightly bitter and a little sweetness. Dies a bit to fast. Leaves only some bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad but could be better.

fbenz (23) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Almost the perfect blend of malt and hops. The malts give it a round mouthfeel then the hops give it a bitter clean finish. This is one my my favorite beers.

Red fruit nose. Rich malt, strawberry, candy, strong herbal hops, sharp dry finish. Expected a smoother brew, finish is a bit too dry covering the pleasant red fruitiness and maltiness.

Vells (715) - Riga, LATVIA - SEP 7, 2014
Another pleasant surprise. Caramel nose, same in taste, well balanced with hops. Nothing complex, but I like that biscuity toffee play with hops. Sweetish with moderate bitterness in finish.
