This deep ruby red color comes from both German and British malts. It is generously spiced with local hops to have lingering bitterness and a romantic hop bouquet in the Northwest tradition.

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2015
On tap @ the brewpub in Seattle. Listed simply as "Red Ale", but all the specs line up (ABV, IBUs, etc) so I think I’m rating the correct brew here. Deep red-orange, off white head. Sweet fruity-caramel aroma and flavour, a little toasty. For a session, I liked this.

Frozer (240) - Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Not much as far as aroma. Clear red hue. Flavor is grainy with some hops. Clean finish saves this one but not the best.

Light-bodied with flavors of caramel, roasted malt and hops. The finish is sweet with a short caramel malt aftertaste. Average overall.
