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.

I have totally enjoyed this ale for a long time. Maybe itís a NorCal thing, but this is the one I enjoy after all those nasty "craft ales". Just a simple hobbit ale, nothing more, nothing less. And it tastes so much like the wort!

To understand my bias, be aware that this is my favorite American Amber Ale. It balances malt and hops beautifully, has a very fruity bouquet and is very smooth.

One of my all time favorites. If you like Heiniken, but want to get into a darker beer. This is the one.

Bottle at Thinking Man in Decatur, GA. Amber with little head. Not much upfront. Absolutely delicious aftertaste. Spicy, citrus, bright. Heady, malty aroma.

I keep coming back to this one. Itís got the hops, but itís also smooth and well-rounded.

very spicy hopping, medium bodied, dry finish. malt is in the background. more hoppy than most ambers - almost like they spilled just a little IPA in the batch... a rich beer thatís still quite refreshing. summertime favorite - quite good.

Very nice beer. Good flavor and aroma. Also a good value. A California beer but has a brewery in Saratoga Springs, NY which is a nice plus for me.
