Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Runabout Red Ale is a classic! Our Red Ale has a malty sweet taste that comes from 3 different types of caramel malt. It is a clean, well-balanced beer that started as seasonal ale that we only brewed from March until July. It was so popular with our regulars that we started brewing it year round in 2002. Our red ale is made with only two hop additions to the kettle as opposed to three in most of our other brews and the malt character shows this. Please enjoy our staff favorite!

Basic Red ale right here.

appearance is deep amber with little to no lacing or head on it.

spicy smell with a hoppby back

Good amount of hops in this brew leaves you with a good hoppiful aftertaste.

overall not much to say about this one. A lot of Sebago's brews are much alike. their hefe is probably my favorite

Serving type: on-tap

There's not much to say about this beer. It's a pretty red color with a small head and minimal lacing. It has a spicy/fruity odor to it, and tastes rather fruity with a hoppy aftertaste. Feels good in the mouth, but is just so-so in drinkability. It seems every beer I've tried at Sebago has the same hoppy aftertaste.
