COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Your father’s red ale was pretty to look at but not much to drink, seriously in need of a personality transplant. But over the years, red ales have turned into the real deal, with a character as lively and big as any pale ale. Reppin’ Red blends seven malts for layer upon layer of caramel and toasted toffee with the uniquely peppery spiciness of rye and tops it all off with a mix of selected Pacific Northwest hops, chosen for their lively flavors and sophisticated aromas of flowers, pine and citrus. It’s a big beer that demands big food. Reppin’ Red is fantastic with grilled meat and steaks, and totally rocks a burger. For something different, try it with blue cheese or a nice, sweet slice of carrot cake—you’ll be amazed.

12oz bottle from the sample pack, thank God this thing was only $7, and that was for a 12 pack, pours a light orange amber with a thin head and bubbles through out, not impressive, aroma is pretty weak, just a hint of malt to it, the flavor has a sweet front end with a tad bit of hops in the finish, really thin through out, some malt, just bland and boring.

Attractive red color with good balance of malt and hops. Rye does add some spice. Much better than current ratings.

Onslow (1129) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Lvely red brew with light tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, grass, tart fruit. Taste is sweet malt with crisp hops finish - a little fruit and some grass. Average palate and overall a very pleasant brew.

My experience with Berghoff stems from attending graduate school in the loop area of Chicago in the mid 80’s. At that time the idea of a brew pub (which Berghoff was very much) was pretty cool. I had been in the naissance of craft brew movement from the early 70’s (which was more of homebrew movement at that time) and was sampling everything I could find (which in those days was not so much.) THe Berghoff was like a paradise oasis of beer - even though all their brews were really just derivations of standard brews of the time. It was great stuff in the day - these days I try to get to the Berghoff a few times a year when I am in Chicago, but the craft beer movement has gone far beyond anything that they did or have done and they are probably too traditional and too conservative to move fast enough to ever catch up. Still, a good place for fine beer and German Food.

Dark ruby color with a small light tan head that faded pretty quick. Aroma of sweet, slightly toasty malt and faint herbal spice. Flavor is caramel and yeasty spice. Medium bodied with an herbal, creamy finish. It’s a decent beer especially for the price.

Pours reddish copper with a tan head. Light malt aroma and taste. Far from the best beer in the world , but still head and shoulders above the average macro swill.
