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

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Slightly hazy dark red almost brownish color and a bit of head that goes away quick enough. Mlty sweet aroma and good sweetness as well. Smell reminds me of Old Horizontal (which is about as high of praise I can give.) Mouthfeel is crisp, somewhat watery. It hoppy, but its not very robust of a flavor. It does have a decent enough malty flavor with it, but still comes off as a bit thin to be, otherwise is a damn good brew. Instead I’d say its better than most, but still lacking something.

Interesting. Sweet and hoppy. Red/Scotch ale cross? Flavorful, malty and caramel with prominent hop nose and finish.

Nice copper color, sugary aroma. A generous amount of hops, good flavor. Felt a bit thin to me, but still another excellent one from Bear Republic.

sloth (2793) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Small tan head, short lived leaving a nice coating lace on the glass. Clear chestnut/ruby red hued brew, pretty. Nice C-hop, caramelly nose, inviting. Medium body, nice texture. Medium sweet malts, caramel, toasty with a good hop balance.Caramel malts and spicey hops blend well. This beer gets more flavorful as it warms and some fruity notes appear as well. Finish is dry with a nice hop bite. Well balanced quaff.

Dark red/brown, numerous floaties in suspension, nice rocky tan head. Grassy hop nose, sweet tangy caramel notes, chocolate. Flavor is sweet, musty, some chocolate, with a good bitter kick, grassy hops.

On tap at Coles. Deep ruby, amber appearance with a thick beige head.Great hoppy, piney aroma. Makes you really want to drink this beer. Full pine flavor. Has a nice bitter, but also sweet bite. Could of drank a bunch more of these.

r464 (2257) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Deep reddish brown in color with a tan head. The aroma is of alcohol, spice, and hops. There are flavors and aromas of pine and the malt is noticable with a kick of hops. Definitely notice the alcohol, but it is not overwhelming. A nice strong ale.

BlondeBush (5) - Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2004 does not count
Strong hoppy character but better balanced (to my taste) than the Stone Ruination that I enjoyed in a head to head taste test with this beer (thanks to BevMo). The Bear plays nicer with others than the Stone Gargoyle (though I’ll take a Stone IPA anytime). Donations accepted.

From wine country comes this dinstinctively delicious beer with a completely fulfilling taste of the pacific coast. Lots of spruce and woodsy hops in this drink with maple and a slight bitter toffee texture that leads to the smooth mouthfeel and a sensational yet bitter finish. Awesome!

A well done brew from BR, poured out a nice looking copper color. Notes of mild hop and malt dominate. Was quite smooth and overall a good + beer.
