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

very nice, thank you alex. pours dark amber with a fat tan head on it. tastes very much like a scotch ale with some kick. smell is hoppy and malty and the taste is very similar. a very nice, rich brew that doesnt leave me disappointed in the least.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Dark amber. Nice full fruity and malty nose, very well developed and soft smelling, pleasent. Flavor is very mellow but full and complex, wood-aged almost. Really excellent.

This stuff is awesome! Caramel/molasses aroma and flavor with a very tasteful hop finish. After having, and loving, the Racer 5 IPA, this one confirms the talents of the BR brewmaster. Every sip is a delight. A bomber is the perfect size for this beer, because 12 oz. simply wouldn’t be enough.

Very nice thick large lasting head atop a bronze and red body. Aroma was hoppy and copper like. flavor had a bit of alcohol and creaminess with a slightly pleasing metal flavor

Wow, hoppiness over Redness. There is a good malt profile here, it’s just buried underneath a bunch of grass and perfume. Very drinkable by any standard but packed with flavor. The Scottish aspect of this may be stretched a bit thin, but I think the beer holds its own.

On tap at Toronado, 05.22.04 Big pine (amirillo?) hoppiness emanates from a thick, lasting, beige head. Cardboard maltiness at first, smooths out to a clean and cleansing hop middle/finish. Refreshing and easy to drink 7%er. A very popular beer everywhere I saw it on tap.

This is a clean amber looking ale with a large tan head. There is a quick hit of carmel malt followed by a burst of sharp citrus hop aroma. The flavor is strongly bitter, which I enjoyed, although I expected more malt. There was a faint carmel malt presence, but it didn’t quite balance the hop taste. Regardless, I enjoyed the malt bill in this one. One that left you asking for another sip. Thanks to mardermax

Pours a brown color with a thin head. Aroma of hops, caramel and alcohol. Flavors of hops, alcohol and caramel. Nice but not impressive.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Appearance: a dark, plummy red color, with a good 1/2" head, bubbly, frothy, tan colored. Aroma: sharp, awake & alive, vibrant and terribly hoppy. Wow! Fills the entire head and buzzes the senses: dark fruits, darkly roasted, and feeling much like a barleywine. Hops are predominant in the palate, and on the tongue, mouth, cheeks, and back of the throat! Malt is full, strong, powerful. The ABV seems a tease for this, at 6.%, it feels stronger! It claims to be a "bastard" Scottish ale, but feels like a barleywine. At any rate, all through this brew I could only report "delicious, delicious, delicious" and an occasional outbreak of "tasty, tasty, tasty"!
