Our Signature beer. Brewed to the same recipe in all locations. A very robust Red ale made with Centennial and Cascade hops which lend a spicy finish to the beer. We have brewed more Sharkbite Red ale than any other beer on our menu. Alcohol Varies.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Draught at Pizza Port (Carlsbad), California.
White head, hazy dark orange body. Quite week fruity and grassy aroma. Also fruity, grassy and light malty in the flavor. Not very interesting but drinkable!

SpringsLicker (3253) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Thanks to Lord Gorlock for another fine souvenir of the 2004 World Tour. This pours a deep Copper with hints of red. The head is thick and creamy. Very weak aroma. Some malt and hop character, but thin and somewhat weak overall.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Light rufous with a mild haze. Compact, lacy ivory foam. Heavily malted nose with tangy plums, buttered caramel, dates, and peach esters. Whsipers of powdery malt, perfumey/earthy hops and pine. Ample body. Fine, dense carbonation, yet fluffy and full. Substantial earthy hop bitterness withstands the thick malt wall and caramel-covered nuts. Hops gain more bushiness toward the core, deflecting the sweet malts and igniting the slippery, fruit esters. Soft body embraces the jellied malt textures with ensuing caramelized banana flavors and slight sharpness of the roasted malt hulls. Malts are slightly chalky, as well. Remains chewy and thickly malted into then finish with lasting date sweetness amid snippets of apple acidity, grainy roast, and fresh hops. Quintessential session brew.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Sweet fruit permeate the full body before green hops come on strong in the end…Oranges and red apple skins tease the tongue but the lack of complexity of this style usually bores me and this is no exception…The near-Belgian carbonation works wonders for the citrusy and resinous hops...More a shark lick than a shark bite, but a very fun-loving one at that, and a very good West Coast session…

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Dry, hoppy aroma. Fluffy head. Light/medium body. Taste is a little hopp, malty enough to be balanced. Drinkable, but not really special.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Clear amber appearance. Decent head retention with sticky tan lacing. Burnt coffee pot aroma with some caramel thrown in the mix, with a light hoppy perfuminess. Average.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2004
12 oz, snifter. Caramel, bread, nutty malt (M); flower and herb hops (L); red apple aroma. Average sized, frothy, off-white, diminishing head sits on a clear amber-red body. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter finish. Medium body, watery texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: run o’ the mill amber.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2004
More like neon orange in color with a very nice thick off white colored head. Aroma is very hoppy, especially when considering the style. The flavor profile presents much more maltiness than the aroma suggests. This is about as good as amber ale ever gets.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Picked up a six pack@Solana Beach Pub: Red amber color with a generous light tan head. Mild roasted malt and fruity aroma. Flavor starts with a sharp dark roasted malt followed by a sipcy hoppiness and a lingering dry bitter aftertaste. Smooth palate. A nice amber.

jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2004
Mild aroma. Flavor is a mild but nice roasted malt with a bit of caramel. Nice but a bit weak, but its supposed to be a session beer so I guess it should be a bit weak.
