WheatKing's rating

Massively carbonated in the cans we’ve had. Hops are citrus/carrot. I’ve never seen carrot listed as a hop characteristic, but seriously when you make an orange/carrot juice with your juicer it tastes like this. Maybe If I drink enough of this I’ll get Jay Kordich eyebrows. Malt is a bit heavier than expected, without many "ringing" qualities, where the hops and malt echo back and forth in the good APAs. Finish is tangerine.

Good, but their ESB and IPA are so awesome that perhaps my expectations were too high.

Golden. Fluffy white head. Aroma is melon and malt. Taste is much of the same with a light bitterness. A Surrey classic.

12oz can from Thirsty Singapore. Bright yellow, good head. Pineapple aroma. Spicy leafy jelly sweet flavour. Bitter citrusy aftertaste. A great pale ale.

5%ABV. Pale ale. Poured out gold. 8 SRM. Nose has a full malty aroma with toast and bread crumb aromas being most prominent. Very brief hints of pine and spruce. Some citrus aromas as well with orange peel and grapefruit peel. Mouthfeel is beery. Palate has nice toasted malt flavor with graham cracker, candied nuts, dark wheat toast, and doughnuts. Hops are bitter and noble with a hint of citrus peel and on further approach start to yield slightly spicy flavor notes as well with cilantro and light fennel seed and cloves. Finish is brief and clean. Then comes back and lingers a little on the back of the throat without being cloying. Goes on Favorites List!

Can. Orange caramel malt and grapefruit peel/pine aroma. Golden yellow with giant off-white head. Moderately sweet orange caramel malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body. Tasty.

JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Golden color with a taller, somewhat diminishing, fluffy off-white head. Aromas of pale malt, melon and light honey. The hops are in the background with light citrus and spice. Light malt and pear-like fruit flavors. Gentle bitterness. Well balanced. A very easy drinking pale ale. 3/11

Patrickctenchi (6554) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Can: (as Red Betty Pale Ale) Slightly orange-yellow with a tall, off-white head. Orange, caramel aroma. Taste is fairly smooth-bittered orange-peel.....caramel malt, barley malt. Creamy malts throughout.....finishes with a nice, earthy, almost nutty bitter. Very enjoyable.

Clear amber not much foam. Good hoppiness, citrus and grapefruit notes. Excellent

ajnepple (6428) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2016
12 oz single can as Red Betty Pale Ale, purchased at Wilbur’s Total Beverage. Medium to dark orange, slight hazy appearance with a lingering white head. Aroma of resinous hops, light pine and toasted malts. Similar flavor, adding a moderate hop bitterness. Average body with a light dry, lasting finish. OK, I guess, slightly harsh and possibly dated.

revoltingblob (46) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2016
355 ml can. Pours a copper color with bubbly white two finger head. Dissipating lacing. Aroma is some sweet malt, fruity hops, dry hops. Lol great deScriptions. Palate is nice crisp dryness and hop flavor. Quite piney. Another good red racer beer.
