What do you want in a red ale?

Do you want it like Killians? Bell's Amber? Flat tire? Some other red ale?

Do you want it malty? Lots of body? Not a lot of body? Hoppy? Do you want a roasted malt flavor?

C'mon folks what are some of the features/favors of your favorite flavrs or feature of your favorite red ale?

John

You are too funny! We seriously need to get both families together for some drinks one night!

Ever think of visiting Greenfield Village and the Henry Fords Museum?

Big DC Reunion in Vegas, I say.

Back to the question at hand....
I love a beer that's smooth as can be, but with a flavor that starts out distinct and leaves a pleasant, honey-like aftertaste.

the ford museum/village is awesome ronjohn. i loved the place.
do they still have the heinz pickle exhibit with it?
did you know that "57 varietes" slogan on pickle and ketchup jars was just a marketing ploy? they had more than 57, but that number seems to appeal to people, so they put it on everything.

as far as red ales go, i haven't had a good one to speak of. i like hoppy (gimme some ibu's), and good body, but that roasted malt thing sounds good too.

I really enjoy the caramel flavors, so, I would really like to have that stand out in a red ale.
