COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OG 13.5 Plato, 31 IBUs, 6% Alc. by Vol. "Red Frog Ale: A little aggressive, at times wild, but like any good red head should be... always dependable. A generous addition of hops late in the boil and after fermentation help balance this beer's malty profile. Enjoy with your favorite red head, brunette, baldy, or whoever. Just Enjoy It!

(tap at Fuddruckers at what used to be the Blue Frog and Grill) clear reddish amber colour with a small brown head; slight aroma of fruit; watery neutral flavour, could have been any macrobrew

Thisis12ptfont (838) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Faint caramel aroma. Crimson red with massive foam. Taste is not very complex though it is interesting. Odd hop flavoring with a slight metallic background. Also odd caramel/syrup-like malts. Overall, it’s not very good quality. Something very funky about this one.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours reddish black with a thick beige head and a perfumy malt aroma. There is a robust smoked malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish.

bhensonb (11047) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Bomber from the Vacaville BevMo. 6.5% ABV. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy beige head that was a little fizzy. Aroma is dark roast malt with some resin. Flavor seems pretty much the same. Might be a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste, but this is fairly hoppy stuff. Better than the average amber.

RedSox2004 (1252) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Clear amber/dark red with a strong two-finger head that left a thick film and spotty lace. Moderate caramel malt aromas with floral hops. Flavors follow, and include toast and notes of nuts. Medium body, rich carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a sweet bread finish.

bnoel09 (431) - Elk Grove, California, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Bomber from BevMo. Description is the same but stats have changed: OG 14° Plato, 40 IBU’s, 6.5% ABV. Poured into an English pint glass. Color is a deep amber with a tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, some cereal notes, and mild hops. Flavor is very mild with light maltiness up front followed by mild resinous hop flavors. Palate is light/medium bodied with a slightly astringent finish. Overall a decent brew that’s fairly well balanced but I prefer by ambers/reds to be more malty and sweet than this.

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2010
At Oregon Brewers Festival. Herbacious flavor and caramel with slight citrus. Weird. Tastes dirty and earthy for some reason. Yuck. Pouring the rest in the drain.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, deep reddish hue, large frothy sand colored head, clumpy lacing, vibrant carbonation.   Subtle earthy/soily malt nose, slightly sweet/sugary in a cane sugar sorta way.   Picking up some Honeycomb like cereal, along with apple skin.   Very soft earthen malts on the tongue, mild sweetness, but does have a touch of astringency.   Finishes with that Honeycomb cereal like sweetness.   For an Amber its rather soft both in the malt and hop department.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate at best.   A little cerealy after the finish.   Tiz okay, slightly rough, and not malty nor hopped up enough.   Honeycomb cereal flavor detracts as well.

Bottle.

Absolutely undrinkable. Horribly astringent, possible hint of a decent base destroyed by stewed vegetables and solvent. Drain pour.
