Notes/Commercial Description:
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!

Had a 14-ouncer on tap at Hadlock Field, home of your Portland Sea Dogs, in Portland, Maine.

Appearance: Pours an attractive amber with a frothy off-white head that sticks around for a long time. Lacing is heavy. Looks good; happy to be drinking this on a frigid April day.

Aromas: Nose is kind of faint, but there's a a note of maltiness and some caramel along with hop bitterness.

Taste: Very good red ale. Tastes include caramel, malt sweetness, toffee and some earthy backbone. Really good.

Mouthfeel: This has a good, sturdy body and an approachable flavor profile. Easy on the palate. Kind of surprised the IBU is so high; not super bitter.

Overall: I love a good red ale, and this is one. Really tasty set of flavors and enough complexity to keep you interested. I was bummed when it was finished, but with the low ABV, it wouldn't be too wild to have another.
