3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample as the third course of a North Coast beer dinner at Teller’s. Pours a reddish amber with some cloudiness and a small, creamy off-white head. Aroma of hops, pine, grapefruit citrus, tea, caramel malts, and floral notes. The flavor also has nice notes of pine, hops, grapefruit, and tea, with a nice malty backbone and caramel sweetness. Very well balanced, but almost too much so, as individual notes are hard to pull out. Comes across as just a nice, straightforward, drinkable, refreshing APA. Medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Malty, hoppy mouthfeel.

I have yet to taste this beer in different settings but I the settings I’ve tried so far makes me think that Red Seal is a good anytime-anywhere beer. The aroma could be better, I don’t find beer with spicy and peppery aroma especially good. The taste and "aftertaste" is almost perfect. Good amount of bitterness and nice balanced taste of alcohol.

Bottled. An amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is very malty with some citrusy hops. Taste is malty and quite hoppy, caramel notes. Very solid malt profile. Very pleasant

Dark Red, Quickly Dissipating Head, Lots Of Lacing. Smell reminds me of Whiskey Barrel Aged Ale - Whiskey. Tastes the same, plus hoppy bitter. While i like hops, I’m no fan of whiskey/alcohol aftertaste, so it was interesting to try it and taste it, it was not really pleasant.

Big foamy head. Brown beer with carbonation bubbles. American style hops in aroma. Buttery mouth feel with big grape fruity hops. Nice! Not a multi dimensional beer but very good.

Copper caramel orange in color... Aroma of light malt and citrus hops... Flavor is caramel malts with a hint of spice, nicely balanced with a crisp citrus hop backbone... Not an amber guy but this was very solid
