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."

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2003
Amber coloured beer with a light brown medium sized head. Malty, vinous taste. Slightly sweet start with a light bitter finish. Had this with a wonderful grouse dinner. Excellent to the food.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 27, 2003
A very wine-like red ale with strong hop profile - I choose this one instead of a glass of wine.

fiulijn (15370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2003
Amber color, creamy head. Some nice hop aroma; very light malt and caramel. Pleasant, with some malt and caramel, light fruitness, pretty strong bitterness, but a bit metallic, not finished, not mature.

Ingevara (816) - SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2002
A deep flavour accompanied by the right hoppyness and nothing disturbing. Don’t drink it too cold.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2002
Ok, i thought it quite similiar to the Twany, but a little less malty, and slightly more hoppy, a bit of a vanillan flavour in the their aswell, decent, and smooth.

Nut brown, rounded maltiness, very balanced and complex.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2001
Oily and very earthy, with a very diminished hoppiness. Big malt accent and a lot of flavour.
