1L plastic bottle with screw top cap poured in a pint glass (twice).

As the name would indicate it's a red with brown tinge amber colour and clear. Head is a cream - light beige colour and dense after the pour, but recedes slowly to a ring around the edges.

Aroma is malty with hints of sweetness, especially caramel, with some fruit undertones.

Taste is strongly malted at swallow but is tempered away by mild carbonation and an undertone of hops in the middle. As the carbonation fades, the malt taste is still there and accompanied by some bitterness. The finish has a touch of malty sweetness to it. Aftertaste is a moderate malt flavour, neither bitter nor too sweet nor too strong.

Medium bodied and mildly carbonated leavign a satisfying, if perhaps a little unbalanced towards malt, mouthfeel.

I must confess that I have consumed mass quantities of this and is my usual at Brewsters. So much so that I wasn't even sure what else they made anymore until a recent visit. So I might be a little biased, but this is what I think of when I think of a Red Ale. It doesn't get higher marks because it really isn't mind blowing and isn't very complex either. Just simple good beer.
