COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, red ale is made in the American Pale Ale style. It has a strong hop character, medium body, dry finish, and floral hop aroma. We use pale Two-Row Brewer’s malt, Caramel 80 and 40 Lovibond malt, and Munich malt. For bittering and aroma Willamette, Cascade, and Tettnang hops are used in the kettle and as dry hopping in the fermenter.

EithCubes (4756) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle. Above-avg strength citrus and resin aroma. Expecting oiliness. Amber pour with a wee little beige head that quickly faded into nothingness. Medium-light watery body with a mf somewhere between prickly and smooth. Mild and inconspicuous. Light rubbery bitterness, a touch of woodiness, and little else. Slightly grainy. Just not enough flavor for a potentially explosive style.

Draught at Old Dominion for breakfast - RBSG DC 06 Caramel and amber. Light head and lacing. Nose of fruity hops, earthy and piney. Cereal like malty and light in body. The finish is average. Nice nose but not that interesting in the end.
