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 (10133) - 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.

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.
