COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Red Zone is a full bodied lager with an aroma of toasted sweet malts. This semi-sweet finishing lager is artfully balanced with seven different types of grain and choice hops.

Nice, dark fruity aroma. Slightly dark clear amber color, with very fine carbonation and somewhat slight head. Caramelly malty flavor and a light body, refreshing and tasty. Hops do serve to balance nicely, but this beer is all about the malt. Pleasant finsh and mouthfeel. Good Marzen style beer.

I was really surprised at this. The website describes this as a "Munchner", but it also says that one of its other beers is a Helles, and I didn't think they would have two of the same style, so I entered this as just a plain "lager". Oh well. Whatever it is, it is a surprisingly good beer--fruity and sweet in aroma and flavor, well balanced, and easy to drink (clearly not a bitter pils). Typically ambivalent brewpub carbonation and palate, and just a normal appearance. But a very nice reason to dive into this brewpub just off the highway if you're on a Minneapolis-to-Dallas driving trip like I happen to be with all too much frequency.

Easily my favorite beer at the brewpub. The body was light amber colored with a light khaki head. The aroma was perfume like with apples and carrots. The taste was spicy with bell pepperrs and some light bread crust. This would be good for a few.

Sampler @ brewpub. Completely clear reddish copper color. Aroma is light diacetyl with some caramel sweetness. The taste losses some of the diacetyl and has a good caramel lagered flavor with some light tangerine hops at the back end.

On tap at Amerisports Brewpub. Pours a reddish color with white head. Caramel, slightly nutty, malty flavors. Alright.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 3, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Amber in color with a big rich head. Speckled lacing. Some toasted flavor. Hoppy with a good malt content behind the hops. A sturdy little beer that I thought lies somewhere between a dunkel and a helles. This does not seem like a Vienna-style. Not toasted enough.

On tap at the brewpub, 2/20/06: Beautiful looker. Rosy and active with a decent enough head. Sweet aroma. Beer was a tad too sweet for me ... but it’s a well-balanced example of an amber lager.

Sampler at the brewpub. Clear amber with a nice biege head. Aroma of fruit and caramel malt. Sweet tasting with some hops for balance. Easy to drink. Pretty good.
