Ratiung #2043 - 2015.09.27 - #CraftTakesSeattle Day 4, Beer 145. Clear amber/toffee coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a strong citrus/floral hoppy aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Hoppy punch and a marbley-malty sweet note. Delicious.

On tap at the brewery. Deep red, almost brown. Nutty, malt-forward brew. Flavor bitters it up a bit. Again, a little tinny. Filtered. I want more complexity.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Reuben’s. Listed as 6.2% here. Pours lightly hazy dark caramel with thin lacy off-white head. Aroma is lightly roasty dark caramel malt with nutty hazelnut undertones. Just a hint of citrusy hops. Taste is quite similar - hops much more present here. Juicy bitter dark citrus notes stand out and linger lightly bitter through the finish. Less malty, and more hoppy, than you’d expect for a red. Par for the course for Reuben’s, and very drinkable.

22 Oz bottle shared at Special Brews. Pours a dark amber color with a fizzy head. Flavor is nice. Very malty with some nutty flavor and a little rye, though I might just think the rye is there since I?m so used to it from these guys. Toasty flavor and a bit of caramel. Overall a good, tasty beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours a clear dark reddish amber body with a small fizzy white head that fell to a thin ring. The nose is toasty and dry malt with a bit of hops to balance. Dry and toasty malt flavors, light to moderate hop bitterness, finishes with some earthiness and lingering hops. Decent run-of-the-mill Red Ale, they did a good job minimizing the sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Reuben’s brews, pours a cloudy, murky dark orangey amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of dry caramel malts, medium pronounced hoppiness, and some metallic overtones. Flavour of citrusy, floral hops, dry roasted caramel malts. Almost reminds me of a black IPA, due to the roast. Surprisingly excellent red ale – one of the best.
