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.

Bomber. Pours clear coppery amber with a lacy off-white head. Thin aroma, just a touch of caramel, dust, earthy hops. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet, malty nutty toffee taste. The finish is just lightly bitter, with the same earthy quality as the nose. It almost seems like they’re positioning this as a gateway brew, not too assertive, but with a enough flavor to draw you in.

kramer (5801) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2008
22 oz bottle, via 5000. Pours a mostly clear copper to light amber body with a slight yeast haze under a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is equally balanced between toasted, lightly caramel, maltiness and a soft perfumy floral hoppiness. The flavor is malt centered with a slightly sweet toasted grain base with just a light accent of lightly bitter hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light bodied with moderate soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty good among the arena of Amber Ales.

Malt dominated beer that is still extremely drinkable. Aroma smells like condensed milk with caramelized apples! Color is an amazing dark brown/red. Taste is a malty caramel with a great hope balanced background.

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.

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.

Draft pour. Pours reddish with a faint malt aroma. Flavor is mostly sweet malt flavor. Mild hops. Drinks easy. Nothing too special or different here, but not bad.

Inviting aroma, pours beautifully and tastes like a fine red ale. A slightly off lingering aftertaste is all that stand between this beer being on of my favorite reds. Definitely sessionable.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Cloudy orange with a white head. Very fruity citrus hops in the aroma with a touch of sweetness trying to show behind it. Very hoppy amber with a very fruity hop finish, kinda wet hop taste that kinda reminds me of cantalope. Very light on the palate, but still refreshing.

Everything Silver City makes seems to make me smile, and this was no exception. Although I am not a huge fan of reds, this one played the part well. A notable carmel sweetness and a bright red glow; this guy is very sessionable for late spring, early summer days. If more reds were lilke this, I might have had a different preconceived notion on the genre. Woo hoo!

A deep reddish color with a thin head. This is there flagship brew it was nice. The malts where woody in flavor and the hops where very light. This is the true non beer drinkers beer. It is easy to drink for anyone. I can see why it is the best to the local PBR crowd. Needs more flavor for my books and just add some fun add some ornage peel or corrinader to give some life.
