COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Dragon Ale is a sweet, malty beer with a mild hop. It pours dark amber with an off-white head, and the aroma is ripe with rich, caramel malt sweetness. Itís well balanced and the elevated alcohol level is well hidden.

Bomber from Half Time. Pours murky dark amber with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, but the hop is ? Full bodied. Flavor is roasted malt with hints of dark fruit. Iím sure thereís hop, but Iím just not getting it, unless itís citrus. And I donít mean I taste citrus, I mean thereís a sour aspect that might be citrus. With all the malt there doesnít seem to be something offsetting it I can lay a name to. But there is something cutting against it. Earthy hop? Best I can do. This is a tasty drink tho. Think Iíd have pegged it at 8 or 9%.

A deep amber brew. Light tan head. Fruity-roasty aromas. Flavor is on the slightly fruity-sweet side. Medium body. Some roastiness on the backside. Clean finish. I like a bit more roastiness in my ambers though.

Sample at the brewery, served cold. 03DE11.

App.: Really cloudy orange-amber with a yellowish-tan head. Aroma: Strong, rich, fruity, malty, bubble gum esters, really malt-forward. Palate: Medium body, fairly lively effervescence. Flav.: Rich fruity malts tempered with citrusy hops; slightly off dry with fair bitterness and a fruity caramel finish.

Pretty good.
