COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s a beer for everyone. Ridgetop Red is everyone’s beer. Full-bodied and smooth with a sweet caramel flavor balanced with Northwest Liberty hops for a refreshing finish.

Deceptive that it’s called "Red" but is an amber ale. Definitely wouldn’t have ordered it. Pours a transparent amber with a smallish white head. Decent balance, but it’s lacking ingredients. This tastes like something the Ram would brew – intended for those who don’t care much for flavor, and are just looking for something quaffable. Slightly metallic – needs a much fuller mouthfeel to counter the carbonation. A bit fruity, but not much to it other than a balance of weak hops and caramel malts.

I for one enjoy this. It’s quite malt forward; not getting a lot of hops. But the malts are abundant and delicious. Quite a bit of caramel notes. Recommended.

Subdued aroma of malt, reddish brown minimal head and carbonation. Subdued taste of malt, sweet, medium body with a malt finish slightly bitter.

lots of caramel and almost sickly sweet aroma. pours a bubbly light brown hue, just a covering of a head. taste is sweet as expected, but malts come through better there and the sugars are little more nuanced.

22 oz’r. Great lightly roasted caramel malt backbone with a big, sweet toffee and cracker component and just enough light pine hop presence to bring it together. Very light citrus notes. Great session beer.

Pours a reddish amber with a thin white head that didn’t last long for me. Has a light, sweet, toasty malt aroma. Flavor is toast and caramel malt with a light, crisp, flowery hop flavor on the finish. I found this a bit boring, but very easy drinking.

Malt up front. Mild hop balance. Sips crisp and carbonated . More caramel malt flavor than I prefer in a red ale.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours deep amber in color with thin white head. Aroma malty, sweet and lite hops. Taste carmel malt and lite hops with bitter finish.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bomber. Dark copper colored with an inch of tan foam. Mostly bread dough, apricot and brown sugar in the aroma. The taste is heavy on the toffee and toasted caramel malt flavors as well as some orange citrus, honey and smoked grain notes. Mouthfeel is mildly creamy with heavy carbonation and a dry, malty finish. A little one-dimensional but a decent Red Ale nonetheless.

From my notes from recent trip to Seattle and Portland...DRAFT at the brewery / pub in Silverdale WA. Pours red with thin head. Nose is mostly brown sugar and caramel....smooth, creamy tastes of the same. Smooth in the mouth. Decent...not outstanding,but good.
