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.

Too thin and astringent. Not exactly harsh, but not really complex, either. Bitter finish, but not horribly so. Not much of a lingering aftertaste. Citrusy but overwhelmed by brittle hoppiness.

"in a word, boring. one of the least impressive "amber" ales i’ve ever had. i can never quite understand why a breweries flagship beer would be this when there are way better beers in their arsenal, including the ever popular pale ale..."

Pours amber with a white head. Malt, caramel, toffee, hop and biscuit aroma and flavors. Medium body and carbonation. Caramel and biscuit finish. Nasty astringent aftertaste. Bland too

Drank from a bottle. Sweet malty ale, that coats the mouth. Nicely balanced hop bitterness

Eww. Bottle must have been fucked because if this is what they were going for, they should think again. Gross. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is not worth drinking. I was surprised how unbalanced and super malty this beer was. Hops and bitterness are there but not there. Don’t try.

UncleKorm (853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2014
On tap poured a clear deep golden hue w/ medium diminishing to a lasting cap. Mild to moderate malt aroma. Initial flavor is faint sweet w/ a bold sharp bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are straw, rye, grass, and bitter hop. Medium body and creamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alexsdad06 (5608) - Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2014
12 oz bottle at home from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have biscuity malt, light caramel, mild citrus, mild earthy notes. Nothing big that stands ou. Forgettable.

BrewGoblin (402) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
Ruddy amber with a white head. Nothing award-winning happening here, just a decent drinkeroo. Citrus and herbal hops paired with brown sugar, nutty and yeasty toast malts is a pretty nice combo. An okay ale that just wants to chill and is at a good price.

Bottle. Straight from. The aroma is straight, shifty corn. The taste is sweet and close to undrinkable. This blows.

Godd brown ale. Easy drinkable. Malty aroma and taste. Yeast notes in the aftertaste.
