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.

Well, I was wondering why this was so dry and smooth until I logged on here to discover it’s a California Common, not an Amber. It’s ok... the aroma is fantastic, with fresh hops digging deep through my nasal membranes. Taste is... what it is, though. The malts itch at the back of my throat. Hops give bitterness and no other flavour, really. Hefty cobwebs on the glass, like the seven dwarfs’ home when discovered by Snow White.

Headbanger (3311) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2012
12oz bottle 8/22/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in Lager Glass-Pours a slightly hazy amber with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, hop, and pine. Taste of the same with more malt and hops. This medium bodied brew is not bad.

minihame2 (206) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle. Hazy dark brown colour with a white head. Aroma has hops and some pine. Soft mouthfeel and a slow start but the taste builds up eventually. An average beer, nothing to see here.

mkel07 (3446) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2012
360ml bottle. Poured a very deep amber, almost toffee colour with an off white foam that laces the glass. Roasted malt aroma with a bit of piney citrus thrown in. Strong in the mouth with good flavour.

maekchu (2160) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Dark sugary aroma with heavy hopping and yeast. Copper, light tan head. Hops and yeast sort of blend in mid palate. Long aftertaste, with a series of prickly hop touches on the tongue. Medium-heavy body. Very pleasant -- though maybe just a bit hop heavy for the style.

pintbypint (2613) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2012
360ml brown bottle. Orangey pour, hazy. Head reduces itself to a thin creamy layer, slight off white colour. Thin splotches of random lacing. Light fruity nose, some malt sweetness, caramel. In the mouth the beer has light citrus, caramel and toasty malts. Finish has light hopping, dryish malt, grains, toasty notes, trace of grapefruit, some grassy sharpness. Average carbonation and light bodied. Usually a big fan of Baird’s beers but this one is average.

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with citrus and pine and mild caramel. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a nice citrus and pine hop bitterness to round things out. Light to Medium body with good carbonation leaving a pleasant tingle on the palate. An above average amber ale that was a pleasure to have sampled.

rumproasts (2878) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2012
nice deep amber, tastes far less complex than the aroma indicates. there is a surprising and not completely pleasant bitterness to the finish
