This bottle of Red Seal is poured with vigor into a straight-sided pint glass. A huge amount of carbonation is released creating a sustaining thick, white head. As I top off the pour, a crater of thick foam is created and some lace is left as the head slowly falls. The appearance is terrific; a light amber-red ale topped with appetizing foam.
This beer smells good, too, with a subtle hop-pine scent. The West Coast hops and caramel malts play togetehr well in this beer and the finish has just enough lingering bitterness. There's a bit a candy-like sweetness right before the bitter finish which is very enjoyble. The mouthfeel is very smooth (due to the pour I'm sure).The body is just about right and allows for a high drinkability score.
This works very well as a session beer, as it is not too strong and quaffable, but with enough flavor to savor.

$ 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.
