COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available only at Midway Stadium, home of the St. Paul Saints. Curly Tail Ale is an ordinary bitter, don’t be afraid of the word bitter. This beer is slightly sweet and smooth with a touch of chocolate in the after taste. We used Golden Promise malt, medium and dark crystal malt, chocolate malt and brown sugar. It is hopped with three addition of UK Fuggles.

Growler pour today at the brewery. Amber color pour, not much of an aroma that I could notice (good or bad) and medium carbonation. Flavor was light malt, a little bitter and coppery on the finish. Not bad, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to pick this one up.

Draft at Stub & Herb’s. Pours a clear, dark amber body with thick white head. Light aroma of sweet caramel malts and biscuit with a hint of green hops. Flavor is mostly grain and malts with a green hop bite and finish. Smooth mouthfeel.

Pours a nice darkish amber hue with a nice head. Nice biscuity bready nose with hints of light chocolate and sweet malt, as well as a faint floral note. Nice even feel on the palate with a nice bitter bite for a 3.2 beer. Suprisingly good, and the best you’ll find at any ball game MLB or smaller in MN.

RBSG 2007: Growler: Copper in the thin pour, citrus on the nose. Taste like toast and malts with some grassiness, bitter finish. OK for me.

Tap at the Flat Earth Open House. Dark copper color with no head. Slight orange aroma. Taste has some toasted malt. Bitter finish that borders on vegetal. Simple but good.

RBSG 07, from a growler. It was very nice of Flat Earth to donate this beer. Light biter malt and very light hops. Light, unoffensive bitter that has decent body but lacks flavor.

Sampled at the RBSG 07 Grand Tasting. Thanks Joe from saving me from a Saints game! Light gold color with a light grainy nose. Faint hops in the sweet body. I think I mentioned something about a bite at the end, but i can’t be sure.
