COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nimbus Red Ale is a rich, medium-bodied American-style amber ale. Known for its sophisticated mouth feel and exceptional drinkability, our Red Ale is a true classic. Copper-hued and well-balanced, Nimbus Red Ale has a lightly sweet taste enhanced with the flavor of four different malt varieties and flaked barley. We brew this beer with handpicked Chinook and Cascade hops. This combination gives our Red a mild malt sweetness and a relatively dry, aromatic finish. Never bitter, Nimbus Red is sure to please the beer lover who enjoys lighter flavors and a lower alcohol content. It's crisp, refreshing taste has made our Red a fixture at major sporting events throughout Southern Arizona.

Cybercat (5832) - Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Pours a pretty clear copper with a fairly thick pale golden-tan head. Malty aroma has hints of grass and cloves. Flavor has a malty core with grassy, clove and hoppy undertones, a little bitterness. Texture has smooth, average body but a good amount of tingle and fizz. Don’t monkey around, give it a try.

bottle. clear orange with a small head. light fruity nose. light sweetness with toasted malt flavors and fruity hops. balanced. dry finish. not the most flavorful amber, but it’s good, balanced, easily quaffable and probably quite refreshing in the arizona heat.

Tmoney99 (14472) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Draft. Poured a dark reddish copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good malt and earthy hoppy aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

Like a heavily toasted ipa or American pale. Very nice hop presence when fresh. Good stuff.

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Amber pour, looks cloudy at first, but that’s more because of large bubbles sticking to the glass and rising from the bottom; once that settles it looks more clear. The head didn’t last long. Light malty aroma. Initial flavor is a blend of malt and hop, that gives way to almost a floral finish. Its easy to drink, though with a hint of bitter throughout. Not bad -- a bit more flavor than a typical amber, but nothing really stands out either.

3.2
DMLINAZ (332) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Pours from a bottle amber brown with reddish tint, white head/lace. Malty, a little sour, somewhat astringent, a bit fizzy; good.

3.2
