Is it possible for a beer to have a groupie? Well, if so, I'm it. I can't get enough of Red Seal Ale. I look for it everywhere, when I see it on draft at a bar, I always have at least one. And that's the thing about Red Seal; it's a great tasting beer that you can drink all night. So many craft beers are filled with character and flavor but also in the alcoholic stratosphere with levels on par with wine, or sometimes spirits. Red Seal packs in the taste and balances with just the right amount of booze.
This beer is a nice reddish amber drink with loads of floral hops, and a great balanced caramel malt backbone. Crackers pours it in a big 20 ounce pint which is just enough to make me want another. North Coast Brewing has a good roster of beers and Red Seal is the best daily drinker of the bunch. Perfect with food, perfect without food, just about perfect.
Serving type: on-tap

$ 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.
