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.

Slight hazy, light amber/golden. Thin head and lace. Decent nose of caramel and some floral aspects. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation cuts into some evident softness. Palate of caramel, fruity yeastiness, some slight grapefruitiness, somewhat dry, slightly bitter out of balance finish. Hops seemed a bit stale? Not a bad brew by any means but not memorable either.

wierd nose, peppery with mellow hops and another fragrance i havenít pinned yet. this wierdness carries through. hard to drink. New rule, if you find it at a Utah state store it must be bad, they donít stock anything good.

Nice amber color, but not a see through beer. Nice aroma, goes down smooth. Not something Iíd go out of my way for, but a nice beer to drink when itís 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. Itís 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.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2002
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.
