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!

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, warm amber golden with an off-white head leaving some lacework. It comes with a classic American nose rich with aroma hops. Medium body, lightly sweet caramel notes, a slight nuttiness and then a fairly bitter finish. Decent but not exactly thrilling. 150807

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2007
Hazy amber color. Aroma of caramel, dry, and nice hops. Weak body, with a good caramel flavor and quite strong bitterness, without exaggerating. The final is caramel and hops too, long and dry. Good.

bhensonb (10767) - 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.

Ughsmash (7099) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bomber. Poured clear reddish-orange with a tremendous cap of sticky beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter, dusty toasted caramel notes with what came across as a cardboardey infection.. didn’t do a whole lot for me. The flavor had toasty caramel again at the core with a touch of sour darker fruits.. lemony acidity and dry, tacky cardboard on the back-end.. ugly finish. Thick and invading carbonation on the palate leading to a poor flow.. this was not good.

marcus (6343) - 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.

5000 (6211) - 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.
