Keith's Red. Not nearly as tasty as Rickard's Red. If nothing else, it has a bit of caramel malt to give it the appearance of flavour. There is a bit of sweetness, but it really does nothing to stand out in any way. I order this when options are limited in the pub.

Alexander Keith's Red Amber Ale:

The look of it: Very red on the light. More on the brown side when it is not on the light. Light carbonation with no finger at all

The smell of it: Very sweet, some caramel I guess. The smell if ok for a red ale

The taste of it: Still very sweet. A touch of caramel. Very light also on the aftertaste. A bit of sour on it.

So overall would I recommend it? Sure, why not.... It is not a bad beer but for a red ale Im sure there is much better, there is nothing special about that beer but it is ok

A: dark copper with very little head and small spots of lacing.
S: crystal malts and moderate noble hops. Clean.
T: similar to the nose. Malty sweetness up front with crisp bitterness in the finish. Minimal hop flavour.
M: fairly thin, highly carbonated.
O: decent beer to pair with my blue cheese burger but unimpressive overall.
