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.

More like a normal ale - it doesn’t seem all that strong at 6% abv. Not bitter and not all that flavorful. It’s apparently their "flagship" beer.

The color is kinda a dark golden...but boring. Nice aroma and flavor. I can’t figure it out, but I’ve noticed this hops flavor before in many different american pale ales. The aroma and flavor is like sour apples. Typical example of the style.

an interesting ale. red amber color, hoppy nose,taste is a blend of a sweet caramel start and pungent hop middle with a dry tart finish. a well made beer worth tasting.

PorterPounder (5355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 Rerate - Clean, doughy aroma, light amber apperance with a solid white head. Has a crisp, citrusy, hoppy flavor that hold up well to the finish. A little better the second time around. Original - 3 - 8/26/02 - Good, bold flavored amber ale. Not too sweet and caramel-flavored. No real aroma to it however.

I just tried this beer for the first time and I enjoyed it. I would definitely try another six pack. It has a small head, but it sticks around for awhile considering the baldness of it. At first the flavor is really pretty good and striking, but starts to fade at the finish. I love the hoppiness of it. The appearance is average. For an amber ale this is pretty good.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Probably the most average and unremarkable beer I have ever had. Slight caramel maltiness, slight bitter hoppiness, but that’s about it.

Nice amber color. Light slightly sweet malt up front with a lingering light hop bite finish. Quaffable.

akinm (282) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2002
Very drinkable beer. Great red color and decent head. Good malty start followed by slightly fruity, citrussy hop flavor. little bite to the hops. very clean finish.

Nice clean tasting ale. Went down quick. I think this ale would pair better with a steak because I had it with spicy food and it was overpowerded by the spicy food.

Nice honey color. nothing distinctive about this beer, outside of a slight sweetness.
