What's the normal color of a liver?

My husband had a liver biopsy done recently which showed alcoholic liver disease, but the description was "tan-yellow soft tissue".  I have heard that a liver is supposed to be red-brown.  Thanks.

The liver is a very bloody organ.  I think it is supposed to be a red color.
