COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Runabout Red Ale started as seasonal ale that we only brewed from March until July. But it was so popular with our regulars that we started brewing it year round in 2002. Our red ale is made with only two hop additions to the kettle as opposed to three in most of our other brews. This brings out the malt charater. It is a well balanced beer suitable for pairing with all types of foods including spicey sauces, BBQ, grilled meats and vineagerettes and most any seafood. We have started bottling this beer for limited release and distribution at our pubs and specialty beer stores. If you know a store that would like to carry our Runabout Red ale or any of our other craft brewed beers please let us know. We will make it happen.
Brewed with American 2-row, caramel 20L , 40L & 80L. Hopped with Willamette and Nugget

reggiedunlop (3633) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Pours clear copper with a medium white head. Aroma has chalky nuttiness...bland but not inoffensive. Flavor has caramel, mild fruitiness, and earthy hops...also tastes like someone watered down a pint of pumking with 8oz of water and ran it through a randal the animal. Mouthfeel is watery at first but medium...a total mystery...and the finish is metallic/earthy hops. I dont understand how this is not totally awful...it works in the suckiest way.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Darien. Pours a clear medium amber color with a medium sized frothy head. Decent head retention. Malty aroma... caramel and herbal notes. The taste is very malty with notes of wort, grainy notes, toffee and a mild herbal hoppiness. Medium bodied.
