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.

A: Pours copper or brass and very clear. Medium to full head. Fantastic retention with a fair amount of lacing throughout.
S: Herbal hops are dominated by caramel malts and vanilla spiced undertones. Faintest hint of apple can be found.
T: Interesting! Incredibly it is sweet at the beginning. Caramel is the most dominant flavor. There is some toast in the middle followed by a supurbly clean finish. Hops present but very mellow.
M: Medium to light bodied. Carbonation is less than expected and takes away from my enjoyment some. I think it would improve the lighter notes in the taste more if the carbonation was higher... but that is a personal thing.
O: I always find myself trying to pair light yet flavorful beers with foods. This beer should be your "type O" : IT GOES WITH ANYTHING. Fact: You could drink this at the tailgate or with a fantastic filet... and no one would be upset. A true jack of all trades. Completely drinkable. A must try for anyone who enjoys North Coast.... but not their best outing.
