Once again, at a Wings game, I got an OK beer from Red Bell. The beer was watery, esp. on the finish which lowers its taste and drinkability and mouthfeel (I guess that's the appropriate place for that). There is a noticeable hops taste, but it could definitely use more. The hops taste is quite pleasant.

A decent American pale ale brewed with domestic malt and Cascade hops. Typical light amber appearance with a fairly good head retention. Nice aroma. Medium bodied. Crisp. Hoppy with lots of grapefruit over a very basic, just slightly caramelish malt. Well-balanced. Finishes clean with a touch of residual hoppy citrus and some mild bitterness. Clean and refreshing.

(Draft) Slight amber tinted with a nice beige head. Lasting lace. Taste of bitter hops (cascade) with a slight metalic finish. Dry hopped well with a fresh nose. Hints of pear. A solid APA.

Had this at a Wings game. Pale golen in color with lasting head, and nice attractive lace. Light bodied with pleasant hoppy floral taste. Trace of firm bitterness at finish. A decent ale.

Pours a hazy yellow, yet see through. No head to speak of, no lace. Slight aroma of hops, not "APA" hops, with a "tinny" after taste. Not a very good beer. No character at all.
