Review - Sebago Brewing Company's Runabout Red Ale
"Our Runabout Red Ale started as seasonal ale that we only brewed from March until July. But it was so popular with our regulars that we started brewing it year round in 2002. Our red ale is made with only two hop additions to the kettle as opposed to three in most of our other brews. This brings out the malt charater. It is a well balanced beer suitable for pairing with all types of foods including spicey sauces, BBQ, grilled meats and vineagerettes and most any seafood. We have started bottling this beer for limited release and distribution at our pubs and specialty beer stores. If you know a store that would like to carry our Runabout Red ale or any of our other craft brewed beers please let us know. We will make it happen. " -- Sebago Brewing Company
Pours a medium amber color with a clear, active body, topped off by an off-white, fizzy head of average size with fair lacing. Aroma is of sweet malts with bread notes and a syrupy characteristic. Initial taste is fairly sweet, but shifts to a subtle bitter finish with a short duration. Medium bodied, it has a creamy texture with active carbonation.
