Lighter in body than our Red Tail Ale, Red Tail Lager is fermented at low temperatures using our traditional lager yeast. “It took 21 years to make a lager worthy of the Red Tail name. Red Tail Lager has a rich refreshing flavor with a smooth light feel and a clean and crisp sweet finish.”

Date introduced: April 2005. Description: Medium body, red hued color, snow white head, lightly hopped, rich refreshing flavor, clean and crisp sweet finish.

"same qualities (ingredients) as the ale, just a touch better from the switch in fermentation method. still not impressive. underwhelming beer. average at best."

Draught at The Pub Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. Very light in the mouth with caramel and nutty biscuit flavours. Clear red to amber colour wih a slight white head. Nutt malt aromas are pleasing and this is a good all round beer without being great.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor are fairly malty, quite fruity (cherry, grape), almost no hops, a little diacetyl. For what it is, quite nice.

Bottle. Malty aroma. Smooth taste, fairly balanced. Enjoyed it quite a bit, wanna grab another one and get better notes on it. 4.5% alcohol.

simple but not great tasting. not very sweet, kind of bitter, and barley sour. weak palate: sub-par malt, apple, gas. part of that wack monthly beer club.

3fourths (9147) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2010
bottle. clear bronze body, white head, patchy and foamy. nose is mostly clean: toasted barley, toasted wheat, light caramel resin, light semi-dried/semi-green hop cones. yeast is very mild, mostly doughy, mostly soft. moderately chewy, somewhat resinous towards the finish, has a fullness or roundness that I typical don’t like to see in lager, but as far as crispness, the lagering is evident and for the most part adds rather than affects/subtracts from the beer. overall not too bad.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Sampled at the taproom on 8/6/10. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, lager yeast and noble hops. Flavor is malt and moth balls (!) with some noble hops in the finish.

Served from a 12 oz bottle thanks to JT. The appearance is a slightly hazy gold with a light brown hue. Smaller white head. The aromas are grainy with a light hop edge. The flavors are grains, a mild grape candy, light hop doses. A better premium lager if you are into one.

Nice lager from this brewery. A distinct grainy character-- this is not a macrobrew. pretty good balance, not too bitter, but not boring, either.
