A classic example of an American Red, Rocco Red Ale has enough caramel malts to stand up to the pungent pine and citrus flavors and aromas from the Chinook, Cascade and Columbus hops. The malty goodness, balanced bitterness and plenty of classic hop character may just have you writing home to mom!

Tap at the brewery. Rating #6. Great looking beer, slight haze and it was a beautiful dark red color. Nice aroma, nice bit of hops with a nice light toasty sweetness. Flavor was similar, good bit if hops balanced by a nice maltiness that made it real drinkable, good stuff. (1799)

I had this on tap at The Pint House in Fullerton. Itís an amber colored pour with an off white head. The flavor has a very good balance of hops and malt. Very tasty and drinkable.

Barreras (1114) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Pours a bright yellow with aroma of typical red. Slightly bitter but smooth and drinkable. Smells hoppier than its taste. Overall one of the better beers Iíve sampled from this brewery.

BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 27, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a hazed bronze to red body and a tan head. Aromas are lightly hoppy, lemon, slightly spicy hop, slight diacetyl and some honey. Flavors are bitter with a bit of an abrupt finish. Bready, a touch of butter. Caramel, bitter with a light hop flavor. Lively, dry.

This is the first batch of what will become a new production beer of theirs. They didnít have a catchy name for it yet, so at this point itís just "Red Ale". A: The pour lives up to the expectations of the style. Amber in color with a finger of khaki colored head. S: Starts off with a nice citrus hop note of grapefruit and tangerine. The hops quickly segue to the malt aromas of toast and bread. A mild toffee aroma and some red fruit flavors. T: A similar story on the palate. Grapefruit and tangerine hops and just a subtle pine bitterness. Toasted bread, toffee, and a slight caramel sweetness. There are some red berry type flavors in there as well. M: Medium in body and carbonation. O: Looking to see what kind of tweaks that will be made to this beer as they continue to brew it.
