COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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 (612) - 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.

Thanks to DrunkAsASkunk for this one. Pours copper with generous off-white head and lacing. Aroma of malt, hops, cabernet, scotch, fruit (melon). Tastes malty, with hops, watermelon, toffee, and a nice, smooth, crisp, slightly dry finish. This one is great. I can’t wait to try the double and triple red (hint...hint).

Nose is similiar to an IPA, very lemony, amber ale I guess is a catch all style. Pours with a frothy tan head It does have a bite to it the name is appropriate. Flavor is more spicy than lemony. Peppery finish.

Good red. Red needs a style all its own. We should start a campaign for the Red Ale. Pizza Port’s red is very good, nice balance of hoppy finish to the malt body.

Reddish brown with a medium head. Aroma is malty, caramel, and grapefruit. Well balanced sweetness with hop bite. Quite a good amber.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2005 (Draft: Liars’ Club in San Diego, CA) May, 2004. According to the bartender at the Liars’ Club, this is the same beer that Liars’ Club serves as their house beer called Port X-Port Red Ale. Standard red ale: balanced, flavorful, malty, lightly sweet and moderately bitter, but really just a decent beer for mindlessly drinking rather than one for beer geeks to savor and analyze. Not much aroma going on. Medium bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Ruddy amber color. Off-white head is smallish on the pour and fades to a rim fairly quickly. Some modest lacing here and there.<HR>(12 oz bottle: Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) Jan 2005. Well, the notes I wrote for the X-Port Red Ale seem to apply to this bottle of Sharkbite. Moderately malty, lightly sweet, balanced by a moderately bitter hoppiness from start to finish. Some light grapefruit hoppiness in the aroma, but it’s pretty light overall. Ruddy, medium amber color, and fully clear in appearance. Light tan head shows decent retention and deposits quite a bit of delicate lacing on the glass.

The beer appeared to posses a handsome red amber body and a creamy beige tall head that formed quickly as I poured, and graced the mug with lots of lace as it dissipated. I could see many floating yeasties in suspension. The natural carbonation was very lively at first but died down to a very minimal level pretty quickly. Aroma was quite hoppy with pine, spruce, and other scents on the nose. The taste was dry, nutty, and slightly burnt with some hints of caramel. The beer also had a snap of hop bitterness that lingered in the aftertaste. Creamy medium mouthfeel was very satisfying. This was a nice bonus in the box from EyeDrinkAle. I thank you for your generosity..
