Red seal ale

Appearance –more of a light orangish red 2 fingers or coarse white foam that linger

Aroma – floral citrusy slight pine and yeasty sourness

Taste- lightly roasted malts at the front like an easy drinking tea, maybe like a rye toast. they give way to a grapefruit and lavender hop bitterness. Slightly copper or irony aftertaste. Pleasant, it taste the best with the big floral nose at the beginning.

Mouthfeel- lighter bodied and easy drinking the flavors jump off sharply and leave the palette dry and wanting more.

Overall I think I may have drank this in the wrong glass. With such a strong aroma I should have had this in a tulip. It is an easy drinking “red”/ amber and I like the balance of hops and malt. I would order this again.

4.06/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

$ 1.89/12 oz bottle at Wegmens in Jamestown, NY
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint
Very faint malty aroma
Head large (6 cm), off white, creamy, rapidly diminishing to an irregular layer which lasts the duration of the beer.
Lacing spotty – rings of irregular islands of various size bubbles
Body coppery, hazy
Flavor of light malt and a hint of lemon
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation

This is a good example of an amber/red ale which meets the style characteristics quite well. The malt is not overly sweet or cloying but just right. I’m not a fan of this style, but this is one I could drink all day.
