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.

Drake (8505) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bomber from Total Wine West Richmond, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of tinny, herbal and earthy hops with toasty caramel malts. The taste is citrus, candied citrus, raisin, faint toffee and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Nice beer.

ChainGangGuy (4370) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 11, 2012
22 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, amber-tan body with a frothed, beige head. Coating lace sheets on the descent.

Smell: Toasted biscuits, a very slight edge of roastiness, with some sweetish toffee hints, bits of dried herbs, spice, and aromatic dried tangerine peel.

Taste: Sweet, toffee-accented, lightly bready, toasty pale malts. Very low roasted tone. Herbal, spicy English hops, but the Amarillo gives a little, light grassy, orange hints and extra added bite. Medium-light bitterness. Drying finish with a lingering orange/tangerine citrus taste (particularly as it warms a tad).

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Though opting to use ingredients a little less than tradition, I still thought it was pleasant enough, serving well for an after-work beer. Hell, I’ll take it over a snoozer like Smithwick’s any damn day of the week.

unclemattie (4170) - Georgia, USA - APR 4, 2012
22oz bottle, Total Wine, Alpharetta. Deep ruby, thick light tan foam. Aroma of hops. Nicely dry hopped with Amarillo hops. Sweet caramel, well balanced with earthy hops. Finishes with a floral bitterness, West Coast style. Very nicely hopped, a pleasant surprise in comparison to most Irish Ales and their butter character. (3295)

larryLSB (418) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - JAN 16, 2012
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.

Dark ruby, crimson, and scarlet pour with a dense off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and a hint of vanilla. Toasted oats, brown sugar, and honey baked biscuits in flavor. Medium mouthfeel.

maxwelldeux (3611) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a tinge of red and a thick white frothy head. Nice hoppy bitter nose to this. I get some grains to bot the nose and taste of this. I quite like it.
