From the moment you pop the top, it’s obvious Pete’s Wicked Red Rush isn’t an ordinary ale. "Engineered to deliver a heightened effervescence, our American Red Ale is WICKEDLY charged! Discover the RUSH... Get Wicked!

WICKEDLY charged! Discover the RUSH of bladness. To me not even as good as Killians. This one falls flat as many of Pete's beers seem to do. Its just a beer that isnt so bad you make face, but isnt good enough to really care. I guess if you just want to drink and not think, here you go. Ahhhh Red Rush, did I just say something?

This beer looked like a normal red, but it smelt like malt extract and tasted like mollases.

Nice full palate makes up for some lack in flavor. Fair aroma and color. Not the best red, not the worst.

A very mediocre beer. Not one of their better offerings. The color is OK, but I excect some roastiness from the malts when the color gets red. Better than a Macro, but that's about it.

Fairly good taste for a red ale... somewhat watered down compared to other micros. Good color and head.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 13, 2003
Pours with a crisp clear deep amber body topped by a medium thick head with good lace. Slightly sweet and lemony hop aroma with a touch of maltiness. Not what I was expecting from the nose. Sweet and malty flavor with a good hop balance and a touch of fruitiness. Slightly bitter finish. Relatively smooth, medium bodied and surprisingly slightly warming.

Certainly not as red as I hope hoping. Immediately a dissapoint because the color lacked the desciption of the bottle. In fact the appearance was downright aweful. Murky cloudy brownish liquid with no head and moderate lacing. Slightly carbonated. Fruity flavor with hint of cherries. Not a good beer

Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized white head. The head dissipates and leaves a thin layer around the edge. The beer leaves small amounts of lacings on the glass. The aroma is weakly malty sweet. The flavor is weakly malty with high carbonation and a thin mouthfeel. Finish is slightly sweet. An average at best amber ale, there are much better examples. Drinkable and it is still better than most macro's.

I was disappointed by Pete's try at a Red Ale. Too close to Red Dog for me.

Nice big head from the pour and lasts for a little while. Decent color of dark orange. Pretty bland beer though. Not much flavor. Additionally tastes a little rusty. Maybe that is where it gets its color from. One of my least favorite Pete’s brews.
