COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship, this Irish-Style Red Ale proudly won a gold medal at the 2000 World Beer Cup. A combination of 5 different malts and 3 hop varietals, carefully blended, results in a perfect balance. Full-flavored and medium-bodied, the Riptide Red provides surprising complexity for such an easy-drinking brew.

Bottled. A deep red beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of butter, caramel, and nuts, in an unpleasant way. The flavor is sweet with light notes of butter - making it unpleasant combined with notes of spices and a burnt edge.

Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle at Nya Trols. Clear red/amber - white head. High high diacetyl aroma - light taste. Fruity. Caramel. Light hoppy. Bad.

2.5
DSG (15118) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Almost clear deep amber color with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, butter (diacetyl), caramel, some nuts, fruity notes and some floral hops. Sweetish malty flavor with some butter, caramel, grainy hints, a bit of hops and a slightly bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied and a bit over carbonated. Would’ve been a decent beer without that annoying diacetyl. Still kinda drinkable, but not really enjoyable.
