4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve had several tasting of this brew prior to reviewing. I’ve poured it in several different glasses and really enjoyed it most from my nonic pint. My overall impressions are that this is a beautiful pale ale in the English pub bitter/ale tradition with a unique and tasty American hop profile. In the aroma the sweet caramel and cereal like malt notes are in the fore, followed quickly by the citrus, tangerine and stone fruit like hops. Pours perfectly in the nonic pint with a light tan three finger head with small tight bubbles and just a bit of fluffiness. The taste is pitch perfect. The
hops give you both a crisp and lingering bitterness with nice citrus, gentle pine and lemongrass. Very forward but never overpowering. The malts are sweet caramel and toffee, balanced and with a nice grain backbone. The palate is simply spot on and delightful for the style. Red Chair is both sessionable and well worth savoring. Red Chair isn’t going to set the world on fire, but it is just so damn good. An easy drinker that defines the style and is always a welcome quaff at a very nice price. About $14.00 a 12 pack. Bound to be a crowd pleaser and very fridge worthy. Cheers
Bottle. Deep copper, red hue, medium off white head, good lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, pepper, rye, a touch of pine, bread and caramel malts. Quite spicy on the palate, with initial bitterness and warming, integrated alcohol. Leads into pine and a sweetish caramel middle and moderately bitter finish. JohananaV2 (159) - - JUL 11, 2017
I had this towards the tail end of the night and had quite a few beers before hand but this was really shockingly delicious. Try it, you will like it

Bottle. Citrus hop aroma with notes of bready malt and light pine resiny hops. Pours clear copper colored with one finger of off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with bright citrus hop flavors with some pine bitterness in the background. Finishes dry, but smooth with bready malt countering the hop bitterness well. Pretty good.

12oz bottle reddish pour with off white head aroma and taste is citrus and light hops Hopper8 (178) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2017 This is a very smooth beer. I love the hop forward nature of this beer that lends the initial bitterness and refreshing nature of an IPA, but comes in with nice smooth and bready malts to just make this an easy beer to sip with pals or on a night in. Very nice.

Couleur ambrée visuellement propre, mousse onctueuse à la tenue modérée. Nez sur les agrumes que l’on retrouve intensément en bouche, mais de manière vraiment surprenante pour une Pale Ale, d’autant plus que ces notes perdurent longtemps avec un complément de caramel. Bonne rondeur en bouche, amertume modérée. Goût métallique en fin de bouche peu de temps après l’ouverture de la bouteille, mais qui fini par disparaître au bout d’un moment. Ouf. Au final, il s’agit probablement là de l’une des meilleures Pale Ale que j’ai bu à ce jour. Une grosse réussite. mike_77 (6668) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2017
Dark orange colour with thin head. Aroma has a lot of sweet fruity notes. Taste is fruity with a touch of caramel and syrup. Bittersweet. TheLouse8 (32) - Nebraska, USA - JUN 1, 2017

355ml bottle. Pours copper with a good head. Grapefruit, pine resin, mango, caramel. Good full body. The epitome of a classic APA. Pdubyah (736) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 1, 2017
The aroma gives you no idea what is to come, he taste is lovely malty sweet with a lovely bitterness edge to it, syrupy fruity smoothness with a gentle but urgent finish. Goodness me.
