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.

Nice amber color, but not a see through beer. Nice aroma, goes down smooth. Not something I’d go out of my way for, but a nice beer to drink when it’s around.

I have to put a qualifier on this. This is one beer that I often see for a decent price at various locations around town, and this is one beer where you definitely receive a good bit of quality for the price, so I never hesitate to pick this up. It’s not the best beer around, but for a price-quality ratio, it is worthy. Sitting down to finally do a review, this has a very small aroma profile, with hints of orange sweet malt and pouring with a light solid amber. The head is kind of weak, yet does a good job of sticking. The beginning rings in with an orange marmalade type taste and finishes with a light hop finish. A good session beer that packs quite a punch.

Medium gold color, small head. Nice sweet malt flavor, mildly hopped. Slight spiciness. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, malt sweetness very evident

It has a nice amber color and smells pretty standard for an ale. It has an easy drinking malt flavor and overall not too bad.

Pretty mediocre pale ale with some caramel and hops in the nose. Clear amber color and light carbonation/head. Light in body with caramel malt throughout and a slightly dry finish. Not very memorable.

Golden amber hue. Smells kinda soapy, with some toasted malt. Medium bodied, starts out sweet amd follows through with lots of carbonation, and a long yeasty finish. A very drinkable ale.

Really nice looking brew. Dark orange color, with a lasting head. The aroma is dominated by maltiness. The flavor is a nice mix of malt and hops with sufficient body. There is an oak barrel flavor in the finish that is enjoyable. Overall a very nice ale, but just a little too much malt for me.
