Type: Red Ale

Brewery: Mendocino Brewing Company

Brewery Location: Ukiah, California

Comments: This Red Ale reminds me of Nestle Raspberry Ice Tea in many ways.  It has the brown and reddish hues of tea and smells and tastes similar minus the high fructose corn syrup.  Great for the girls who want a beer without overly tasting like one.  If one were to describe this beer in one word it would be: Pretty.  Pair this beer with a salad that you would drink with ice tea.  Worth buying again given the right mood.
