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.

An initial sweet malty tast followed up by a nice balance of hopps bitterness. Amber color with a smallish off white head. Medium bodies and lots of carbonation. NOt a bad effort.

After seeing this brewers big ads adorn the pages of so many beer publications I was expecting a lot from this beer. It is pretty average, so I was let down a bit! It’s nice malt profile is clean and delicious, but thats where the ride ends. It seemed like it had the carbonation level of a mineral water because the bubbles kept rising and rising. My bottle says it was brewed in New York.

Oristo (67) - Orinda, California, USA - DEC 31, 2002
Good rich golden color with a weak head and fair lacing. A bit cloudy but honestly so. Good malt-dominated taste with nice fine carbonation. Light in the mount ... not watery, though’ Good malts early with a lingering hop finish.

Creamy head. Slowly diminishing. Mild carbonation. Malty nose. Bitter hoppy flavor. Pretty simple.

Golden orange with a steady small head. Orange and floral aroma. Bitterness evident. Quite mono-dimensional, simple and boring.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Dirty golden peach. Thin, frothy off white head. Minimal carbonation. Fruity, orange aroma with mild yeast hints. Crisp, zesty and citric with a dry malt base and tingly bitterness. Strange farmy, citric aftertaste. Medium light body. A very dry, very sharp feel to it. Gets less interesting as it goes along. Finishes arid and maltless and still biting. Average on all counts.

A spring/summer beer to my taste. Fruity and refreshing but not as heavy as I’d like for mid-December. I like the dry finish a lot.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2002
Interesting pear-like taste. Nice hops bite at the end. This beer is lacking in warm malty flavors but is very, very refreshing. A little watery tasting but I think that this would go great with spicy foods as a cooler.
