This is my first review in many years...when I originally joined I was a casualty of the economic down turn....very happy to be back...
First off....the bottle of Thomas Creek River Falls Red Ale I am drinking from says it is 6.2 % abv...maybe the recipe has changed since the original was introduced...
This is a very balanced beer.
Open the bottle and a very light sweet scent of malt is present--only a small bit above subtle...
First sip is not that of many American Reds-malt, caramel then a boat load of bitterness...but rather sweet apple (pink lady or maybe gala) and nicely ripped pear. As I continue to take a few sips, the sweet-but light-malt sweetness comes through. There is enough bitterness to balance it out but I did not actually notice any bitterness until close to the end of the first bottle-which I did welcome. The second bottle I noticed a more prevalent array of malt and caramel sweetness accompanied by the bitterness, which is the trend that continued into the last bottle of the six pack-...what did you expect?-I never start a six pack w/o finishing all six.
I have had this beer several times-bottles and draft- and proud to rejoin this community with a winner:
Thomas Creek River Falls Red Ale is a really good beer...

Color typical of the style; deep copper. Lingering, off-white head in the glass. Caramel malt in the nose, no hop presence. Good malt flavors mid-palate, with light English hop flavors and roasted malt well balanced. I'd say medium body but with crisp mouth feel and dry, light roasted and very smooth finish. Very easy drinker.

Pours a clean orange-ish to reddish color with an off white head. In the aroma, a sweet caramel like malt. In the taste, sweet caramel malt, citrus notes, and a sweet to dry roast. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry caramel and citrus aftertaste. Nice citrus hop and sweet caramel malt.
