Red Brick Pale Ale

As part of a beer trade with Lance Martin (Beers of the Night) and Alfred Hugh Leonard III, I received a bottle of Red Brick Pale Ale. The beer pours a golden color with a frothy white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of sweet pale malts, fresh pine and lemon hops, and grass. The taste is light on the tongue with a caramel malt backbone. The main focus, however, is the fresh and bitter hop profile, bringing along flavors of pine, lemon, and grass. The alcohol content is 5.5% ABV. This was a nicely bitter pale ale with a great hops profile and a faint caramel backbone that allows the hops to shine.


  1. Absolutely. I enjoyed this Pale Ale, and Red Brick beers are pretty solid in my opinion.
