12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Finally getting around to trying this one from North Coast Brewing, acquired a single bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a coppery reddish-orange with some fine sediment visible and about a finger of creamy off-white head. Leaves good strands of sticky lacing behind. Looks very good.

S - The aroma is simple, yet pleasant and refined. Bready & malty, with a dry herbal / grassy hop presence to balance it out. Lightly spicy.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready & malty, grassy, herbal, & lightly floral, with a perfect amount of hop bitterness.

M - The feel is smooth, crisp, clean, and very easy drinking.

Overall, I would call it a classic example of what a red ale should be, definitely a staple for the style and brewery, and it is definitely a beer I will be getting more of.

North Coast Ruedrich's Red Seal Ale -----4/5.

I love this beer. It's the perfect brew for my palate. I think I'd be happy drinking this everyday.
