When in Portland, I picked up this bottle from Coalition Brewing. After we were done with Brewvana, a few of us went out and check out a few more breweries. Coalition Brewing is a small brewpub on a side streets of Portland. There is no history on the internet on this brewery. They only have three beers that they put in 22oz bottles and this is one of them. The rest of them they will fill up growlers for you. This is the only beer I had and I fall in love with it. Let us get into the beer.
This beer has a nice red color with a white head on it. It has a slight malty to caramel smell to the beer. The taste is a sweet malty carbonation with a slight bitter aftertaste. It is q pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.coalitionbrewing.com):
KING KITTY RED
5.74% ABV, 59 IBU, 11.6 SRM
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
King Kitty Red is a Northwest take on the typically malt forward style. Brewed with four different hop varietals and a sweet malt backbone, this ale is balanced with a clean bitterness and enticing aromatics.

Closing out, I am not a fan of red or amber ales but this one is done very well. I enjoy drinking this beer and I am down to one more bottle in my frig, which I am saving a little bit longer. I do not know when I will get back out but I will be back at this little brewpub. If you live in the Portland area, go and check out this brewery. I am glad I stopped in and had a pint. Put a bird on it and go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
