Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

Availability: Year-round

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!

Pours a light tan, two-finger head that lasts leaving some lace. Clear red/amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight malty nose. Starts sweet but the hops are quick to dominate. Finish is hoppy with a bitter aftertaste. $3.49 for a 22oz bottle from RSVP Liquors Portland, Me.

On tap at Sebago in Portland. Pint glass.

Color is deep amber reddish brown. One finger off white head.  

Smell is nicely hoppy, earthy, some brown sugar.  

Good amount of hops on the taste. Malty mid palate, finishes refreshing bitterness.  

Good mouth feel decent carbonation.

Overall a good beer. Agree that it's pretty much an average red ale. Pretty hoppy, not like IPA level but still strong hop presence overall in nose and taste.

Poared from bottle with a red/amber color. The thin head dissipated quickly with no lacing. Almost no noticable fragrance. It tasted OK with an expected malty tone but for the most part the taste was underwhelming. Good mouthfeel but left a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Not much to write home about with this brew.
