Red Rocket Ale is a bastardized Scottish style red ale that traces it’s origins to our homebrew roots. This full bodied and hoppy brew finishes on the palate with sweet, caramel malt flavors. 2009 California State Fair - SILVER 1999 Great American Beer Festival® Other Strong Ales or Lagers - SILVER 1998 Great American Beer Festival® Other Strong Ales - SILVER

This may have been an old bottle and I do not believe it was stored properly at the liquor store where it was purchased, but here goes. Pours a really dark red with a huge pillowy head that takes a few minutes to dissipate. Aroma is sugary malts and floral hops, very pleasing. Taste is hops, carmel malts, some fruits and a little roastiness. Taste is slightly cardboard which makes me think this bottle had been on the shelf a little too long. Slightly off tasting aftertaste hurt drinkability a little. Seems like a very good beer. I will adjust this review as soon as I can find some fresher product.

On tap at Bear Republic. Pretty red color, faint aroma, caramel taste, not enough hops for my taste.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2007
22oz bottle pours dark copper in color with a healthy offwhite head that stays for a bit and laces some. Nice aroma of caramel malts, some grapefruit notes as well and maybe a little peat. Flavor is caramel, molasses, toffee, and grapefruit. Very smooth on the palate and quite easy drinking. Slight bitterness at the finish. Soft carbonation gives this a nice smooth mouthfeel too. Not bad at all.

Slightly hopped and malty aroma. Hazy red with a medium head. Medium palate. Good caramel malt flavor with a hop bite and a somewhat rye flavor coming through.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Pronounced fresh hop aroma. Balanced, drier than a traditional Scottish ale, but well balanced. Sort of a Scottish-American Pale Ale. Roast bitter cherry with a complex persistent finish. Very, very nice beer.

Dark amber pour with off-brown head. Malty nose with hints of hops. Light citrus, with great sweet malty mouth feel. Nice little alcohol feel to it when it hits your lips.

bhensonb (14167) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2007
Aroma of pine, perhaps a bit of floral. Quite red color with a beige head. Starts with malty sweetness, full mouthfeel, followed by some hop which seems to be citrus. Some gritty brown malt in the finish, backed by some bitter. Fairly smooth, almost creamy at points. Seems a bigger ale than the 6.8% would indicate.

kramer (5912) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2007
22 oz bottle, via jarspag. Pours a dark ruby colored body, completely clear, under a foamy one finger beige head that left copious amounts of lacing. The aroma strikes me as a typical ASA with a heavy citric hoppiness. Lots of syrupy caramel and toffee maltiness. Aggressive hoppiness grabs you up front with a moderate bitterness level. Finishes a little sweeter with some toasted and toffee malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly sticky and resinous texture cut by a lively aggressive carbonation level. This was decent, but seemed to lack any distinction between this and a 100 other ASA’s. I’m never too big of a fan of the "lots of everything" formula for Strong Ales. How about some subtlety?

Stine (1761) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 19, 2007
Magma hued pour with a perfect, incredible thundercloud head. Candied plum and caramel apple aroma. Hidden foresty hops. Rather monstrous flavors. Burnt toffee and charred dark fruits chased in the finish by barren woody hops. Brown sugar glazed orange, semi-sweet chocolate. Palate is full, rich and forward. Somewhat noisy and brash, but still strangely pleasant.
