DrnkMcDermott (3175) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2003 Bottled. Another 3-4 year old bottle from a friend's stash that ages nicely. In fact, it still reads "Ruedrich's Red Ale," whatever that means. Pours a rusty red color with some sediment swirled in. Caramelly taste, a bit tart like a hint of cherry. Hops grab attention a bit further down; they are mellowed but still Pale Ale spicy, and impart a touch of cider. A decent, slightly strong beer that keeps well with care.

Livendadream (261) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 16, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 Btl, pours a clear light bright red color with a big tan head that hangs around for the whole time it’s consumed leaving curtains of lace on glass with each sip. Smells of bread, minerals and spice. Tastes of crackers, minerals, caramel,a hint of orange and spice. Light to medium body, perfect carbonation, smooth yet chalky mouthfeel and a spicy,mildly bitter finish. This beer is growing on me. Very smooth beer that is clean, refreshing and easy to drink. It’s not the usual hop bomb. Tasty!

balloonbuffoon (737) - - DEC 14, 2017
12floz bottle, BOD: 08.31.2017, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. Poured vigorously creating a 1.5 finger off-white head atop a light amber colored body. Bits of of lace are left behind too. Presents a mild mannered subtle caramel aroma. This is not suited to my tastes. It's too harsh of brown/burnt leaf hoppiness. There is some latent honey-caramel noted, but is heavily overshadowed. Blah.

gripweed57 (2966) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2017
From old tasting notes. Labeled as Ruedrich’s Red Seal Ale. Hazy Amber orange color. Big bubbly tan head. Mildly spicy hop aroma.msubtle fruity malt flavor that is complex without being overdone. Nice dry finish. Very flavorful.
