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.

Westkyoto77 (503) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2013
Draught @ Bungalow. Dark amber, off-white head. Resiny hops and ripe oranges in the nose. Medium body, fine carbonation. Not as fruity as I expected, but still has some nice flavours of fruit and caramel. Restrained bitterness, nice clean finish. Decent.

KeefOz (849) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2013
Poured a hazy dark brown amber colour with a two-finger off white foamy head that retained well and laced well. Low carbonation. Aroma very slightly of floral hops and not much else. Taste mild semi-sweet malt fading to mild hops. Light body. Short, crisp, mild hops bitterness finish.

Jado (492) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2013
330 ml bottle. First off, this bottle was either way over-carbonated or didn’t travel well, frothing out when opened. Eventually it pours a clear red-amber with a fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon zest, noble hops and dark bread. Taste is definitely malt driven, but with an overlay of lemony hops. Fruity finish. Smooth and quite enjoyable.

Davros (1869) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2013
Pours amber with a quickly fading head. Nose shows caramel, bready malt and some resinous hops. Nice malt character. Malty flavours too. Bready malt and sweet syrupy notes. A fair bit of resinous earthy hops too, along with an assertive, well-balanced bitterness. Carbonation could be a bit higher.

The aroma is malty, caramel, flowers and citrus. Hazy red/amber appearance, off-white head. The flavor is caramel, bready, flowers. The finish is flowers, citrus. Medium/thick in body. Very nice. The crispness of a lager, and the fruity qualities of an ale.
