Cloudy orange with a white head. Very fruity citrus hops in the aroma with a touch of sweetness trying to show behind it. Very hoppy amber with a very fruity hop finish, kinda wet hop taste that kinda reminds me of cantalope. Very light on the palate, but still refreshing.

Everything Silver City makes seems to make me smile, and this was no exception. Although I am not a huge fan of reds, this one played the part well. A notable carmel sweetness and a bright red glow; this guy is very sessionable for late spring, early summer days. If more reds were lilke this, I might have had a different preconceived notion on the genre. Woo hoo!

Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2015
355ml bottle. Deep amber/red shade. Lots of foam. Nose is waxy and leafy hops with some fruity orange character. Taste carries that through with a slight earthy, nutty sweetness. Seems well joined up. Nothing too exciting but perfectly fine.

22. Grainy, hazy opaque dark amber with bright rubied highlights. Light tan sudsy film and lace. Sweet bready nose with minimal differentiation. Light body with slight carb and not much else happening on the attack. Mid-palate opens up without too much fanfare and carries through with light caramel and brown bread happening. Bit of a disappointment, really. Clean finish. The whole thing is really not very interruptive.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours deep amber in color with thin white head. Aroma malty, sweet and lite hops. Taste carmel malt and lite hops with bitter finish.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Pours a reddish amber with a thin white head that didn’t last long for me. Has a light, sweet, toasty malt aroma. Flavor is toast and caramel malt with a light, crisp, flowery hop flavor on the finish. I found this a bit boring, but very easy drinking.

Deceptive that it’s called "Red" but is an amber ale. Definitely wouldn’t have ordered it. Pours a transparent amber with a smallish white head. Decent balance, but it’s lacking ingredients. This tastes like something the Ram would brew – intended for those who don’t care much for flavor, and are just looking for something quaffable. Slightly metallic – needs a much fuller mouthfeel to counter the carbonation. A bit fruity, but not much to it other than a balance of weak hops and caramel malts.

22oz bottle from riversideAK - thanks, Alex! Nice bright amber pour with a fluffy cream head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, more or less as you’d expect for a PNW brew, in this category or otherwise. Slightly thin mouthfeel but decent smooth, and more than drinkable. Semi-sweet malts are balanced nicely by grassy hops to give this one a liveliness often lacking in the style. Pretty decent.

This was a pretty nice red ale that had a good malt and finish. Poured a light red color with alot of nice head.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a bubbly beige head. Aroma is sweetish caramel. Med body. Flavor starts like cola. Not very bitter. Makes me think of marzen. Does finish more bitter than not.
