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.

Hops first, then a malty finish. Malty aroma. Nice amber color. Another in-between beer. Not bad at all, but nothing to put it up there as ’special’.

Re-Rate 07/26/02: Nice amber color, large beige head and lots of lace. Nose is malt, the front is malt sweet, the top is light, the finish has a nice spicy hop bite, dry, acidic. A decent beer, and one I have liked for many years, not great mind you just pleasant to drink, when nothing seems right. Ranks #794 on my master beer list.

Amber, small head, good lacing. Medium body with nice light caramel malt flavor followed by a nice thin fruity hop finish. one of the more interesting ambers that i’ve had.

extra fine sediment, but a beer not worthy of it’s classic dead shirt parody.

ClarkVV (4855) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 10, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2003 Reddish gold appearance. Light, fresh, fruit nose, but the body is lacking. Perhaps a bit too carbonated and could use alot more hops. The Blue Heron kicks the Red Tailed Hawks ass.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2004 Deep reddish-coper color, decent white head that sticks to the glass, light sweet roasty nutty-caramel aroma. Some roasted malty nutty flavors, light to medium body, light and smooth mouthfeel, a bit watery leaves a somewhat sweet aftertaste, very average.

golden cut -pineapple color, transluscent; head as thick as a crepe, with thin lacing like high cirrus clouds. nice nose suggests balanced elements: sawdust, cookie and orange, some raw leather. brisk palette with medium body, some orange in the flavor, tang and tea mix. modest sweetness and cleansing bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Fruity, sweet, and fragrantly hoppy aroma. Fairly decent head and carbonation. A light dusting of yeast in the bottle was swirled and poured. Red Tail is a rather nice light golden-orangey amber color. Flavor mostly seems to be about the balance of this beer. The flavor profile is one of the more complex I've tried, for the style. There are some nice fruity (pineapple) flavors, some slightly caramel flavors (not as pronounced as in many ambers, though) and overall a nice, light but spicy and fresh hop bitterness. The finish is mostly dry and hoppy, but a tad of malt sticks around. I had an impression when I was drinking it that it was 'Barleywine Light.' It really does have a lot of the same characteristics, just not to nearly the degree of a typically huge barleywine. I'm sure not everyone got that impression, but I did! As far as ambers go, this one is very hard to beat for me. Tasty, and very underrated IMHO.
