COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep reddish brew with medium body and carbonation. This stronger, maltier, and hoppier pale ale has a depth of hop taste and acidity in the palate and finish. Cascade dry hopping gives this popular brew a fresh, floral nose.

Draft at brewpub. Pours a rich red amber with a dissipating light tan head. Fruity ester aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of caramel and toasty malts, countered by a firm bitterness. Some residual sweetness as well.

deyholla (6642) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin tan head. Aroma was full of pine and floral hops with a slight undertone of grains. Flavor began with grainy malts and then the pine hops take over for a bitter finish.

Copper with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, citrus, toffee and some dark malt. Taste of lightly roasted malt, nuts, fruit, light chocolate and mild (not so good) sourness. Finishes up oddly bitter. Possibly infected.

On tap at the brewery as red snapper special amber and at 5.5% abv. Dark copper, almost opaque with creamy beige head. Aroma is dry malt with fresh pine and citrus hops. Rich toasted malt with citrus and some grapefruit. Medium to thin with active cabonation. Tasty, I hope this is the same beer.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2009
12 ounce bottle from mibirder. Thanks! Pours a deep nearly cranberry red color with a very large head that won’t go away. Nice lacing. Aroma of grain, grassy hops and a light tart note. Taste is bitter hops, very strong nutty notes, caramel and light grain. Medium bodied. A little off kilter but decent.

Onslow (1165) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2009
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Looks good, smells OK, the taste is almost great but collapses into a funky mash that reminds me of bad yeast, rotten cheese, and workout clothes that should have been washed weeks ago. This reminds me of really early micro brews, like the stuff that was floating around in the 70’s. They tasted like someone’s sneaker fell into the vat. Yikes! Thanks for the memories and I’m all the more appreciative of the great strides most micro brewers have made, but this won’t be on my shopping list in the future.
