Description

(Makes 5 gallons) Red Ale is technically not a beer style category. Oh, well. It was created (and is continually evolving) in microbreweries throughout the US. Usually very similar to Amber Ale but with additional, darker crystal malts. MoreBeer! takes a different approach. We make it red with 2oz of Roasted Barley. The result is a red-colored beer but without the deeper, caramalized flavors. We add a combination of Cascade and Northern Brewer hops that combine with the malt flavors to make this a unique beer you won't find anywhere else.

Very good beer
I have been making beer and wine for over 10 years, and this is one of the best I have ever made.

Darn Good Red
This was just my second attempt at homebrewing, and it turned out great. A well balanced ale, a little on the hoppy side for a red, with a good amount of roasted malt flavor. Compares well to some of my favorite west coast reds. I'll definitely brew this one again.

A good beer
This beer was good. It has great head on it and had a Newcastle taste and quality. I'm aging it a bit but it was good from day 1

Okay
I brewed this when my neighbor brewed the Irish Red Ale. His was much better. I think of red ale like I used to get in California called "Red Nectar", (sorry if I'm not supposed to mention that) and this was nowhere near as tasty, in fact it was nowhere near "red" either. Not a bad beer, in fact if I didn't know what it was supposed to be I would have really liked it. Just wasn't what I was hoping for.
