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."

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Reddish brown with a warm orangey glow and a huge, deliciously creamy head. Complex, malty beer with the flavours almost queuing up to impress my taste buds. This is almost like a dry Sherry with a nutty character and only a discreet bitterness and a hint of sweetness. Very sophisticated, vinous brew. A real sipping beer. Yummy. 130401

Ingevara (802) - SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2002
A deep flavour accompanied by the right hoppyness and nothing disturbing. Don’t drink it too cold.

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.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2005
Buttery and vanilla aroma with remote some varnish. Orange/brown color, beige almost creamy head, good lace. Sweet, fruits exploding at the first sip, soft bitterness, light spicy and a little sticky.

Oakes (12514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2001
Oily and very earthy, with a very diminished hoppiness. Big malt accent and a lot of flavour.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2005
Opaque ruby rd colour (duh) with a good, lasting creamy head. Big fruity and vinuous aroma. Flavour is both malty and hoppy, so i guess it’s well balanced. Texture is quite thick. There is a bit of alcohol in the finish. Dangerously drinkable.

NosirIwont (1960) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2005
Bottle. Pours a hazy brownish red with an off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma. Flavour is sweet and fruity with notes of alcohol. Well-balanced. Round body. Has a red wine-feeling to it. I find it a bit too sweet, though.

oh6gdx (20308) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2005
Bottled. Copper coloured with white foamy head. Caramellish malty nose along with hops. Hoppy flavour along with a bit caramelly hints. Quite dry and a bit sticky palate.
