Extra Special cause this beer is brewed in my hometown. A refreshing ale with just enough flavor and a clean finish. A redish color with a medium aroma. Can only be purchase this ale in a Gallon jug. Availabilty of this ale is probably limited due to the size of the Climax Brewing company.

Although the label on the growler indicates that this is an "American Red Ale" I feel it's actually an English-style Pale Ale and I wonder if the style has changed with different incarnations. It's clear amber body is topped by a short and foamy off-white head that drops to a thin and creamy collar but also leaves some interesting lace. The nose expresses a soft fruitiness, a mildly caramel and earthy maltiness, and a limited floral hoppiness. There's not alot going on in the aroma but what's there is very clean. The body is light/medium with a very fine and moderate carbonation from bottle conditioning that leaves it silky smooth across the palate. The flavor is of a subtly sweet and earthy malt that's accentuated by a mild fruitiness (apricot, apple) and some floral hops. It's balanced by a solid bitterness and finishes dry and earthy with some mild lingering hop flavor. It's a very accessible beer that's gentle enough for the uninitiated, but also offers enough character for the connoseur. Very well done with a high level of drinkability.

The beer pours an orangey amber, topped with a thick, rocky vanilla head. The head settles into a tight misty film, leaving loads of cobwebby lace. Decent clarity.
The aroma is fairly mild, with a light toasty maltiness and some floral esters. Tangy grassy/herbal hoppiness, maybe some goldings in there. It smells much more like an english ordinary bitter than a pale or red ale. A bit one dimensional.
The flavor starts with a mild pale maltiness. Just a bit of crystal malt biscuit and toasty flavor, moving quickly into light floral esters. The malt fades into a prominent grassy hopping. A bit of an herbal/floral flavor, mostly consuming any malt flavor. Very light body, almost watery feeling. Moderate carbonation. Fairly easy going mouthfeel, a bit crisp and dry in the finish.
A mostly unimpressive beer. It feels much more like an ordinary bitter to me, with the super light body and weakish malt. I was hoping for a red ale, and wasn't really prepared for this. Probably a solid thirst quencher in the summer heat, but nothing I'm craving in the early winter.

From a half-gallon, brewery sealed, growler.
Crystal clear amber body, topped by a fluffly white head, which leaves behind some nifty lacing. The aroma is not strong, but carrys some fresh floral hops. Taste starts off with a quick malt burst, but is quickly covered by a growing hop tingle, which finishes with a somewhat cleansing flourish of floral hops, and ends with a slight hop tickle down the tongue and into the throat.
Not my favorite from Climax, but a fine, easy drinking jug of fun.

A nice amber pour with a decent white foamy head that will die down before too long. A very nice hop aroma blended with fruits and a bit of graininess.
A very smooth beer with a medium body and a good deal of flavor. The hops are very nicely blended in with a light maltiness and a subtle fruit presence. It is a pretty unique beer and very enjoyable.
