COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"English Table Beer."
Available filtered and bottled.
Contract brewed for Refresh UK. From 2000 to Summer 2004 by Burtonwood. From Summer 2004 by Wadworth.
"A distinctive ale crafted from a judicious blend of Pale, Crystal and Vienna malts to creat a Rotwein hue. Ruby Ale has a vinous, full bodied flavour and a perfectly balanced subtle bitterness. The rich aroma is characteristic of these distinctive hop varieties. Brewed from Fanfare malted barley, Fuggles and Styrian Golding hops."

Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
The head is nice and golden and leaves a nice lace. The color should be ruby, just like a red wine, but it’s dark brown. The aroma is sweet and malty and the flavour is very sweet, especially in the beginning. It has notes of malt, caramel, dark fruit and some spice. It has a slightly bitter finish. It’s a nice after dinner beer.

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2007
Bottle. Nice dark red colour, nearly burgundy. Aroma is dominated by caramel, having roasted and slightly smoked tones as well. Flavour is likewise dominated by caramel, but with some hazel and plum-like finishes. It has a wonderful way of circulating the caramel arong slight bitterness and fruitiness, never making the caramel too much.

jacobwennbom (352) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2007
This beer really is deep ruby red. It has a nice bitterness and a luring caramell maltyness I for one don’t mind. However does feel a little thin if I recall correctly, also s biy boring (in lack of a better word). Might have again to re-rate.

Bottled. Dark golden with an off-white head leaving nice lacings. Sweet, caramel aroma with a vinous fruityness. The flavor has lots of sweetness, along with malt and hops. Full-bodied and sweet, with a finsih consisting of both malts and hops. Worked well with semi-soft cheese. (060428)
