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.

Pours more copper than amber, but it does have a good hop aroma. Flavor is not as impressive with metallic and mineral flavors dominating. Some good hop/malt balance in there but it seems like the yeast throws some wild notes into this brew.

danielyabu (1339) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JAN 21, 2015
small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. translucent average-density light amber body. aroma: moderate malt, caramel, light hoppy, maple syrup. if: heavy sweet. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Pesado Dulçor maltado lembra também Karo. Amargor de lúpulo surge para equilibrar no final do gole. O amargor de malte e lúpulo são balanceados e se auxiliam mutuamente, como previsto no BJCP. 30 s

12oz bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Caramel, biscuit. Very bland. Could use some hops/bitterness to balance it out and add some flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bork (387) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Mild flavored slightly sweet and fruity ale with a soft malty base and not a whole lot else to cheer about. A decent brew but very forgettable.

"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.

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.
