A Pacific NW style red ale brewed with the highest quality Crystal malts and copious amounts of Nugget hops. The Rose City Red will win you over with its red tinted color, amazing aroma and complex flavor. A perfect brew for contemplating the return of the roses.

CapFlu (4710) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Thin white frothy head atop a deep reddish brown body. Nose of red malt and strong orange hop bitterness. Hops really are overpowering and malt is toasty and bold. Pretty plain.

Fatehunter (1518) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy dark red colored body. The aroma is rich malt, a little lemon, caramel and flowers. The taste is mild lemon bitterness at first that is quickly balanced out by the big malt bill. Kind of barnyardish overall. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It’s a good, bold red ale.

Cloudy dark amber to brown color with frothy head. mild aroma of caramel with light fruity impression. Good body, round mouthfeel; strong flavor of caramel and dark caramel, light roastiness, light residual sweetness; it has some lingering fruity touch and floral undertones; strong bitterness; roasted nuts in the final.
Solid beer, well brewed, with an original delicate touch.

Bulk_Carrier (2500) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
The appearance has a dark red colored body with a one fingered white foamy head that dies within about a minute to a slightly foamy cap coating the top of the body. Lacing is sticky against the sides of the glass. The smell has a rich caramel maltiness with a slim roasty nuttiness pervading my nose. The taste mainly sweet through the caramel malts and nuts, however, a decent bittering effect starts to come across in the flavoring as it warms. There is a malty nutty aftertaste with a dry bitter malty finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium on the body with a decent sessionability aspect to it. Carbonation comes across really smooth for the style and is pretty good to me. Overall, this is a pretty good American Amber/Red Ale that I would have again
