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!

Pours a nice amber color with a thin head. The smell was a bit on the sweet side with a lot of grain scents coming through. The taste was very mellow with malt in the beginning and then a clean hop finish. Overall it was enjoyable, but forgettable.
