Pours a red brown with a beige head and sweet malty, grainy aroma. Taste is light and not very flavorful, some sweet malt, caramel, and bread notes but wasnít a fan

Nocturne (1773) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2015
355ml bottle. Deep amber/red shade. Lots of foam. Nose is waxy and leafy hops with some fruity orange character. Taste carries that through with a slight earthy, nutty sweetness. Seems well joined up. Nothing too exciting but perfectly fine.

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

Deceptive that itís called "Red" but is an amber ale. Definitely wouldnít have ordered it. Pours a transparent amber with a smallish white head. Decent balance, but itís lacking ingredients. This tastes like something the Ram would brew Ė intended for those who donít care much for flavor, and are just looking for something quaffable. Slightly metallic Ė 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.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2014
I for one enjoy this. Itís quite malt forward; not getting a lot of hops. But the malts are abundant and delicious. Quite a bit of caramel notes. Recommended.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2009
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.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2008
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.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Pours a reddish amber with a thin white head that didnít 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.
