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.

Bottle at The Foundry (Mohamed Sultan Rd), Singapore, 5.5% ABV
Cloudy amber color with generous head. Aroma of malt and yeast, some caramel fudge candies. Smooth mouthfeel; pleasant flavor of caramel fudge (more caramel than fudge); correct bitterness.
Balanced, good beer.

GoufCustom (1654) - HONG KONG - DEC 19, 2013

360 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place in Mong Kok.

Cloudy hazy dark amber red colour with chocolate-colour dirt like yeast sediments; One finger head with beautiful, crumpety off white foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with slight carbonation; Quite fragrant sweet aroma of full ale malt, with dark fruit, honey, chocolate, caramel, bread, yeast, light lemon and grass; Mid to light sweet taste of full ale malt, with very light grapefruit, faint cherry, dry biscuits, bread, yeast, molasses, liquorices, lime and grassy hops; Medium body, quite thick and slick palate; Mouth feel is full Ale - close to Premium Bitter - with pretty sharp German Pils-like bitterness. Minimal sweetness, thin but notable red fruits, bone-dry and bready, thick and slick. I like it! Hoppiness is red fruit and like grass nose, limey and herbal grass taste. Good dose of liquorices for a pretty licking bitter finish; Very dry after taste, crisp and nicely bitter to mouth.

Comments: As a Cali Common, this one is a bit simple in taste variety, but the looks, body, aroma, dryness and bitterness are as good as they can get. No detour or bumpy ride throughout, very enjoyable all the way. Recommended of course!

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2013
A touch of spice and some off-fruity hops. Dark amber color, kind of cloudy. Sweet overall taste, a bit bitter and starchy. Smooth, slick body. From the far side of San Francisco...

KansaiBeerLvrs (4663) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2013
5.5% half-pint at CBB. Nice cloudy amber honey color with a thin filmy head. Caramel & some sort of herbal/spice quality I canít pin down in the aroma. The body is smooth but thin with a very light carbonation. The taste is lightly bitter, acidic with a bit of caramel in the finish. An ok ale, slightly bitter but fairly well balanced.

Westkyoto77 (623) - 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 (1561) - 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 (779) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2013
330 ml bottle. First off, this bottle was either way over-carbonated or didnít 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.
