COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy dark orange to light brown with a small white head. Dry malty and slight fruity aroma. Sweet malty, light fruity and with a minor bitter note. Ends dry and slight acidic finish.

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma is sweet wtih citrusy notes of hops as well as light notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and some dusty hops, leading to a dry and lightly bitter finish.

JohnnyJ (4413) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Another pretty standard beer from this brewery. Amber pour. Toasted bread, caramel, citrus, slight sweetness, and hops. Well balanced amber, doesnt seem to much like the other CA commons that I have had.

ChainGangGuy (4393) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Appearance: Pours a hazy, reddish-amber body with a frothy, sudsy, off-white head. Fair amount of lace on the way down. Smell: Oven-toasted biscuits with a very distant kick of dark caramel and fruit boosted by hoppy scents of spice, citrus, coarsely chopped herbs, and wood. Taste: Toasted, day-old biscuits with hints of dry caramel. Touch of Tomcot apricots. Hop profile displays full tastes of zesty, zippy spices and citrus. Also, maybe, just maybe, even a tad woody. Medium-high bitterness that’s bold but not overbearing. The toasty qualities try to reemerge past the spice, citrus, and staunch bitterness, but it’s to no avail. Finishes dry and bitter with a lingering toasty biscuitiness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Delightfully quaffable -- one of those beers that it’s hard to finish the review before I clear through the entire bottle. My first Baird beer and a rather good one! Here’s hoping the other three I purchased are as pleasant.

Cornfield (5506) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle from the Sam’s in Downers Grove, Illinois: This poured a dull amber body with a respectable beige head. Had some floaties in it. It had an aroma of floral scents, toasted grain, and a squirt of pink grapefruit juice. A nicely balanced flavor, leaning towards a floral bitterness near the end. Nice drink.

omhper (19705) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2009
Draught at Baird Naka-Meguro Taproom. Hazy nut nrown, creamy head. Perfumy hops covers a midsized rounded body where grainy malt fillsout the costume. Lightly fruity, floral with some black currant. Fairly bitter finish.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2009
Extremely heady, over flow and long lasting. Dark amber body. Nose of pine roses and other floral hops, barley malt and a winey sweetness. Taste was quite hoppy, wood, pine, vinous and a bit sweet. Nice. Soft palate with a very long finish of grassy hops.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Generous, tight-bubbled head that remains rocky throughout the tasting. Lots of chunky lace on the glass. The color red-orange amber with a solid haze. Sweet, hoppy and attractive. Floral aroma of fresh hop cones. Enough malt to make it very balanced. Close to perfection. Beautiful bitter. The malt is present but in the background. The hop, if I am hyper-critical, is leaning toward the harsh side. Extraordinarily drinkable. If I were to have a complaint, it would be that the liquor is on the thin side for such a flavorful beer. Still, this is an exceptional beer well worth seeking out.
