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.

Lubiere (12883) - 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 (6075) - 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.

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2004
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.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2004
Fruity, caramel aroma. Amber coloured body with decent off-white head that recedes slowly with some lacing. Fruit and caramel figure prominently in the flavour also with decent balancing bitterness. Low carbonation. A bit sticky perhaps, but very wasy to drink. Bottle.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2004
Pours a pale brown with lots of floaties and a nice, white head that, unfortunately, dies away completely. Aroma is malt, raisins, caramel, and alcohol. Flavor is malty, sour, and astringent, with a nasty chemical aftertaste. Not quite as unpleasantly medicinal as the Scottish Ale. Mouthfeel is typical. I don’t know how they make a 5% beer taste so much like alcohol.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2004
(Bottle/Draft) Reddish/copper color with a slight white head. Slight sour taste and little else. Not even close to my favorite.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2004
Orangey amber body w/a short lasting off white head. Lightly malty and fruity and has a sweet candylike aroma and the lightest little hint of roast. It's well balanced, and has a cherry candy finish and aftertaste. Finish is also on the dry side. It doesn't really have any distinctive flavors that stand out, save the cherry candy flavor. Lighter bodied and slightly dry in the mouth, lighter carbonation. Not terribly impressive as far as American reds go, but not undrinkable.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Looks and tastes like every other damn Vermont amber ale. I swear, you could line them all up and even the brewers couldn't tell the difference between them.
