I wanted to try some local beers while in Orlando. The lagers didn't interest me so I decided to give this beer a try. Note: It is now an "organic beer".

I'm not a fan of "organic beers". Why? I find they lack in flavor. They seem to miss the boat when it comes to flavor.

This might be the best organic beer I have tasted yet. It's not great, but it provides some good flavors and yet doesn't leave you with a poor aftertaste.

The smell, the color and the first taste all told me it was a red ale. It's not a strong red ale, but satisfying considering my options. The lack of hops isn't helping it. It also has very little carbonation, so it comes across as a little flat.

Much like the Pale Ale, the Red Ale is just a solid beer....nothing noteworthy and nothing upsetting. The beer poured a clear amber with white head that laced. The smell and taste were sweet malt base with good hop balance. The mouthfeel was light in body with good carbonation. Overall solid.

12oz bottle

Pours a dark reddish amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is mainly faint sweet malts and caramel, very light on the hops. The taste is like the aroma with some sweet toasted malt and caramel with some hops in the finish. Overall, not my favorite beer from the brewery but this one is a pretty decent Red that is worth a try.

Had this on tap at Fifty Brews in Orlando. Appearance was a nice red ale, little darker then expected. Smell was nothing impressive but did not offend. Taste of this brew on draft is much better then previous experience in bottle. Drinks very smooth nice malt flavor and just enough hops to balance out the style. Easy to drink and of course its organic. I would recommend this over just about every other Orlando brew except the Kristal Weis which is only available limited at the brewery from time to time.

A - Poured a good red color with nice head. Not too much going on with the trace.

S - Smelled of light malts and strongly of hops. Not too much of a fruity character going on here, just mostly hops.

T - Low malt background with an over the top hop presence. There really wasn't too much roundness going on. I wasn't expecting hops of this magnitude to come out of a red ale. It was a watered down brew with hops.

M - Very flat all the way through. Kind of dissapointing.

D - Although this had a few low spots it is still drinkable. If I was in the mood I could see myself drinking one.

I had a bottle of this at the Peabody Hotel on a recent visit/business trip to Orlando. Not the best red I've had but not terrible.

Color was a red amber, somewhat cloudy with an active and persistent head.

Aroma was somewhat on the light side. A little malty but in general not very aromatic.

Flavor was pretty much what you would expect from a beer like this. Lightly malty, mild hops. Nothing our of the ordinary.

I enjoyed this beer ok but i didn't love it.

The beer was served on-tap at the Orlando Brewing tasting room, and served in a pint glass. The beer is a light, vibrant auburn-red with a thin, small bubbled, white froth. The nose of smoked caramel is very sweet and creamy. Flavors are toasted and smokey caramel, with a bitter hoppiness at the end. The beer has woody and earthy characters, also. Mid-bodied and smooth, but remains light while leaving a good amount of lacing along the glass while you drink. The aftertaste is sweet and buttery, with a sharp and crisp finish due to the increased carbonation.
