COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

brokensail (12503) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
This is the first batch of what will become a new production beer of theirs. They didn’t have a catchy name for it yet, so at this point it’s 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.

bhensonb (12149) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bomber from Craft Beer Kings. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma is treacle/toffee with suggestions of hops. Med body, at least. Flavor is rather hoppy - citrus/pine, accompanied by some nifty thinly treacle malt flavors. It’s all a little thin, but the flavors are robust in combination - was that a contradiction there? Anyway, it’s maltily, hoppily spritely. Making me think of rum and coke. Non sequitur. Tasty drink, but a bit unusual.

BMan1113VR (7898) - 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.

On draft at the brewery. Red amber pour, with an off white head. Caramel malt, light breadiness, fruit, and some grapefruit. Decent, but nothing special.

BlackHaddock (4699) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
13th May 2015: on tap in JFAT (Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern) Dana Point, Orange County. Chestnut red and clear, the fast fading head being beige in colour. Malty molasses rule the nose and taste with a chocolate like finish to the treacle/caramel flavours: my sweet tooth like it.

joeneugs (3979) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 20, 2014
22 oz. bomber from Perry’s. It pours a clear amber red color with an orangy head. The aroma is nicely balanced between toasted malt and piney hops. Some background notes of red fruit and syrup. Nice. The flavor is very piney with some caramel and red fruit. Hints of molasses like syrup before a piney bitter finish. Not a bad hoppy red, but kind of underwhelming and a little too sweet.
