COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic red ale tradition of a rich copper color and a crisp palate.

Had this beer on 6/11/2006. Aroma is a light roasted malt scent. Color is a deep golden brown with light carbonation and thin head. Taste is smooth, rich and malty. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a smooth feel. Finish comes on with a roasted malt flavor backed by a mild bitterness and then ends with a sweet maltiness. This is a nice well balanced Amber.

false advertising, why call an amber red when it has neither red color or red ale characteristics? couple of spices here, not so good.

Pours more of a "day after thick piss" amber than red. Nose is fruity & slightly hoppy. Almost no malt present. I can’t describe the head because it died immediately!! Wayyyy too sweet and fruity to be a true red. If you want a good red beer try Leinenkugels red, or go back in time and try Augsburger Rot, perhaps one of the best red beers ever. Some strange spice in the after-taste makes this one even worse! Paid $4.99 for a 12 pack sampler on 02/09/2007 in West Allis, WI..

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Ruby copper colored with aroma of caramel malt, slight hops, slight cat piss, and mild vinous fruit. Tastes medium to light palate, with some vinous fruit, hops, tart lactic flavor, and caramel malt. Not a repeater for me.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 19, 2006
This bottled brew from Fort Wayne, IN poured a small sized head of foamy off-white colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a carbonated transparent copper brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was sweet with malty ginger and metallic notes. The mouth feel was tingly from start to finish where it ended mildly hoppy crisp clean and smooth. The flavor was thin with malt hops mild caramel and mild red malty notes.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, and musty. Flavor is caramel, slightly sweet with some hops present, and a metallic finish. average brew, nothing impressive.

kingfiogojr (78) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2006 Pours caramel-red color with medium white head. Smells acidic.....a little puke like. Tastes unsavoringly bitter with not much redemption, a little stale. Sweet at first, but finishes entirely wrong. Not a great beer. Soapy pallete too. Ugh.

Best way to enjoy a Scrooge & Marley Red Ale is to watch somebody else drink one. Great looking Amber Ale with minimal flavor.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Nice light amber, med carb, thin head, some lace. Aroma is diacetyl light caramel, and some stale malts. Light caramel flavor some metallic, more butter, and very light hop character. Dry finish.

Not sure how my brother came by this one (think his neighbor bought it for him). I was all set to taste an evening of major players in the beer field when my brother told me to try it. A very solid beer with above average marks in everything. No faults, just a nice red ale and very drinkable.
