COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a classic Red Ale brewed with British malts, East Kent Golding hops and fermented with Irish Ale yeast, but with a West Coast spin to it. Must I say Amarillo. Once you taste it, you’ll be back for more.

Bottle. Nice deep copper amber with a very lively bubbly beige head. Caramel aroma with earthy nuances. Caramel flavour, a little bready, mildly bitter finish. Marred by over carbonation and a hard mouthfeel.

Poured from bomber, purchased at Whole Foods in Capitola, reddish brown with a nice light tan head. Malty nose, like caramel candy, smooth balanced taste, really enjoyable as it warmed up. Nice medium bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Overall enjoyable another good one from Knee Deep, impressed with them so far.

22oz bottle. Rating #9. Clear dark amber color with a light beige head. Toasty malt aroma with an underlying sweetness. Flavor us similar, mire toastiness with a mild aftertaste, very well made and enjoyable. (1973)

On tap; poured an orange color with a big frothy head. Aroma of caramel, earth, biscuit, vegetable and fruit. Flavor had a bit of hops for the style; earthy and caramel. A bit of alcohol. Pretty good, but not a huge fan of Irish ales.

22oz bottle, purchased at Bottle Barn. (I remember really digging this beer on draft when Jeremy (brewer) was visiting TAPS Petaluma; didn’t bother to rate the draft version at the time.) Pours a medium, amber-brown color with high clarity; creamy, fine-bubbled white head with modest retention and nice lacing. Aroma presents, seemingly, a whole bunch of Maris Otter-like malt character (biscuity, light buttery caramel), along with some fruitiness and a very quiet hop aroma; malt-driven, and a fine showcase of British malts. Medium body; medium-high CO2; a nice, endearing mouthfeel overall (the draft version was like silk). Lots of toasty, biscuity British malts first and foremost (with hints of butterscotch and caramel on the periphery); while the mentioned Amarillo additions don’t really play out very prominently, the hop presence is quite smooth, with some orange and citrus flavor quietly popping up; very light red fruit notes; ultimately a crisp, solidly drinkable showcase of British malts with a light accompaniment of American hops. I could go for a more forceful display of Amarillo... but I always could. Medium-length finish of toasty and biscuity malts, with hints of an orange and mineral bitterness; nicely dry at the far end.

Draft. Copper colored beer with a big cream colored head. Chocolate and grapefruit aroma with roastiness. Grapefruit and citrus flavor with light malt and light astringency. medium bodied. Citrus and toasted malt lingers with light astringency.
