From the bottle:
Malt & hops are beautifully married in this copper-red pale ale. Generously hopped for a long, spicy denouement. Water, malted barley, hops, yeast & that’s all.
From my notes:
Pinkish rose colored beer with a thick tan head. Smells of malt and hops hints of cherry. Tastes of hops and citrus. Too much bitter on the finish. Very smooth to drink.
Considering how much I enjoy North Coast Brewing Company’s other beers Ruedrich’s was a let down. It’s a perfectly serviceable Red but seeing how their other beers were so much more than ‘serviceable…’ I need to learn to not let my expectations spoil a beer. Red Ale’s go well with chicken, seafood, and ground beef. A little spice won’t hurt either!
