COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rainbow Red Ale is a well-balanced, easy drinking American-style red ale. This brew has fruity esters, nutty malt flavors, and finishes soft and clean.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Just an average red. Pours a good, average, cloudy red. Nose and mouth of a little malt and a little hops, but not an American hop taste and not much malt. Not much sweetness, not much complexity. Small beer, literally.

3daddict (139) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Beer poured nicley with a smallish head and a malty aroma. Drinking brings out sweet citrus and malt but the mouthfeel falls flat and dry, bordering on skunk. You are left with a bitter, sour aftertaste. Not to my liking.

rederic (2907) - montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2005
Hazy amber-orange hue, with a shy head, grainy, cereals, nutty, malty aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate, with a fruity, vinous note, malty, leading to an acidic finish. Not a pleasant one to drink.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Bottle. Small head, red color. Malty but has average red flavor. Nothing spectacular but a solid effort. Can taste caramel but aftertaste is a bit thin and watery. Hops are there but not more than just noticeable.

(12 oz bottle, obtained in trade with Eyedrinkale, thanks Mike!) Upon pouring this beer, I was greeted by a slightly sour aroma, and given the rash of infected beers Iíve had lately, I was pissed. But the flavor shows no significant signs of spoilage, so I guess the nose is just on the sour side. The flavor is pretty simple, somewhat malty and lightly roasty, caramely but only mildly sweet, and moderately bitter. As stated, itís not sour tasting, but breathing in though the mouth while taking a sip yields a slightly sour sensation. Itís fairly well balanced, but the overall flavor is kind of wimpy and isnít especially enjoyable either. The body is a problem, being pretty thin and watery for the style, on par with the body of some lighter styles. Cloudy, with many small particles suspended in the beer. Deep amber color. Light tan head isnít very impressive on the pour, but does manage to show pretty good retention, holding a thin layer throughout the session. Only a few streaks of lace are left on the glass, however.

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2005
Amber red ale with a fungal soil aroma. Smooth malts with very little hops detected, some nuts and diacetyl. Oily mouthfeel. So-so beer. On tap at American Flatbread, Burlington VT.

Suttree (5126) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Just a tiney bit cloudy reddish copper with a thin tan head. citrusy toffee aroma. Starts slighty sweet, with hints of toffee and maybe caramel. Finishes with a mild citrus note.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 A great beer to grab after a day on the slopes in the Northeast Kingdom. Great chilled, I always bring back a case or 2 when coming back from skiing.

Poured a reddish amber color with a small off white head and very light lacing. Sweet aroma, light malts. Citrus initially, sweet, and light bitterness. Not really that great, but better cold.
