COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Tail Ale - The Legend is our flagship brand. It is brewed in the traditional "old world" manner, using premium two-row malted barley, hops and our own special proprietary yeast strain. It is an amber ale with a rich complex refreshing flavor and a crisp dry finish. Red Tail Ale is "Bottle Conditioned." Like good wine, Red Tail Ale is a perfect complement to fine dining.

Solid offering from this under-rated NorCal brewery. These guys are OG all the way - they’ve been kicking it since 1983. The brew isn’t quite as dank as homegrown products of the area, but Red Tail Amber is a solid example of the style. Clean on the palate, nice malt balance, and enough hops to keep it real. Good beer to sip with a few bong loads while waiting for the NBA final game to start. Go Warriors!

drjoeng (738) - SINGAPORE - APR 18, 2016
6%ABV. Amber ale. Poured out slightly cloudy rust. 16ºSRM. Nose is beery and malty. There is slight funkiness to the nose, a little dank and with the sweet eatery aroma of warm over ripe fruit. Nose also has dates and some spiciness in the nose suggesting nutmeg. Mouthfeel is soapy. There is good carbonation. The palate has sweet malt body with the spiciness of rye. Other flavors include graham crackers, honey, dates, raisins. The toasty malty sweetness is pronounced and forms a very solid backbone to this surprisingly easy to appreciate ale. Hops are bitter and sappy. Finish is medium with bitter, vegetal and some stone fruit peel. Overall, a very pleasant, full-bodied ale with a malty expression, nicely balanced with bitter hops. Very very nice. Goes on Favorites List!

Pours a reddish Amber with a white head. Thanks Brad for the Xmas gift. Aroma is grainy with a bright hoppy note. The taste is mildly sweet. Mildly bitter and mildly balanced. Some interesting malt character. But average overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
