I keep expecting red ales to have a sweet caramel flavor like the red lagers from my earlier beer tasting days, so it shows how long certain impressions can last. This was a nicely hopped ale with a lovely deep copper color. Not a winter warmer, but certainly not a session beer either. I prefer Avery's specialty beers, but I often forget they make a good standard ale as well.
