Decent redish brown apperance. Malty and watery, not much hops to speak of. Another boring and bland beer by Pete's.

From what i'm told is that Pete's beer used to be wicked good. sadly now they wicked suck ass. well, this one did. it wasn't horrible, but a sad sad waste of a beer. horribly bland and average. it's like Pete sold his soul to Budweiser.

Has a amber color with a good bit of carbonation and a light malt smell. Taste is lightly malted and finishes lightly hopped. Overall it is a but less watery then Killian's, which is good, but still nothing special.

As far as red ales go, this one is probably the best one I've tasted. It's pretty, it's got a distinct hoppy flavor that doesn't seem as obscene as Killian's.

Is this supposed to be red? Very litte to taste from in this beer. I would definitely try a Killian's over it which doesn't give it much credit at all.

Well, it's an alright beer, with a decent look to it, but the flavor lacks depth and much real character.

This beer is pink! So weird. It tasted more like a lager to me than an ale. I'm not having very good luck with this Pete's sampler so far.

A little watery in the taste. Not much of an ale flavor. Fairly boring and predictable. The old red was better.

The aroma was very light, actualy I didnt pick up anything! The appearance was a very light amber, not even close to red! The flavor was bland maybe a slight hint of hops. The beer was smooth. Overall not all that great.
