This original amber ale is inspired by the "Steam" style of beer. Whereas a "Steam" is a lager beer fermented at an elevated ale-type temperature, Red Rose is an ale fermented at a lower lager-type temperature. Like a "Steam," Red Rose combines a crisp lager refreshingness with a robust ale fruitiness. A lovely citrus-pine hop character is present from start to finish.

islay (2276) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Cookie to biscuit aroma. Chalk dryness. Candied flower smell. Pleasant but not outstanding or particularly strong aroma. Am I detecting Belgian-esque yeast? Pours a bronze to sable color, maybe with some copper. More light brown than amber in color. Hazy from the yeast. Large amount of surprisingly thick, uneven, long-lasting, light taupe-colored head. Produces good lacing. Dry taste. Low on flavor but not unpleasant. Cardboard. Some fruit that is hard to identify: Maybe pomegranate? Floral flavor. A touch of metal in the finish (not a good thing). Light body. Mineral water-like palate effects. Baird Red Rose Amber Ale probably is better than this score indicates, and it is interesting, but no more so than one would expect from a hybrid style like California Common.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
(nice) cloying sweet aroma, very floral and fruity -- peaches and grapefruit. blurry amber, thick frothy bright beige head. flavor is much milder, lots of floral and some fruit, but slightly watery. somewhat thin, carbonation got lost in the head, leaves mild boring finish.

Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham, NC. Pours a very hazy brownish-rose color. Aroma is caramel, faint grain and a tart floral note. Taste is caramel, bitter, leafy hops, tea, nuts and bread. Medium bodied. There are the faintest signs of what may be infection.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle @ Hashigo Zake. Pours amber... Off white head.
Nice hoppy citrus nose, bit of biscuity malt. Initial flavour is nice, with a fair bit of zesty hops and toasted malt. However it seems truncated, when the bitterness is brief and finish negligible. Tasty, clean and very drinkable. This one does grow on you. I could have a few for sure.

Courtesy of bu11zeye. Hazy amber with a white head. Spicy caramel aroma is lightly sweet. Medium body. Yeasty, spicy caramel flavors with light pit fruit notes. Not too bad.
