Not terrible. Pours a nice reddish hue with a dirty white head. Aroma is sweet malt and some peppery hops. Flavor is very light and refreshing, a bit dry in the finish and sweetmess lingers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Beer is a clear light-medim amber without a head. The aroma’s first impression is that of caramely malt and diacety. Otherwise malty with a light note of toasted grain, moderate note of cookie to go along with the sweet caramel; Hoppy with a light note of herb and a trace of dried apricot; Yeasty with a moderate note of dough; Light miscellaneous note of honey. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic with a slightly longer than average-length, lightly bittersweet finish. Husky aftertaste. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

12 oz bottle. Absolutely foul. I drank two different bottles to make sure I didn’t get a bad one but this was just sour, bitter (in a bad way) awful beer. It may have spoiled either way but I couldn’t finish either bottle.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a clear golden color with a small off-white head. The aroma was pretty bland. Just some light malt. The flavor at least added some hop on the finish. Lightly bitter on the finish and semi-dry.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Clear, deep golden ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Malty, grainy aroma with notes of mash, apricot, honey and gentle white pepper. Good balance in flavor. Citrusy, peppery hop layer coating a subtle, unassuming malty sweetness. Medium-bodied and tangy with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, dry finish.

Pours a pale amber with a good, lasting head. The good part ends there. There was a light maltiness and no hop presence whatsoever. It was really more bland and boring than anything else. Nothing off about it, though, so that’s a plus.

“It took 21 years to make a lager worthy of the Red Tail name..." A lawnmower beer? Golden amber, pale in body with a head that vanishes nearly instantaneously, it has a sweet caramel aroma devoid of hops. Watery body, it delivers a slightly metallic, caramel malt flavor and no hop bitterness at all. The finish is sugar water. No mas!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(12oz bottle) Clear apple juice body topped by a small and quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma is mild, medium sweet, cereal, orange, faint grassy. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, orange, bread, some cereal, some floral, lager yeast. Minimal bitterness. Watery light body with minimal crispness. They should ditch this one and spend up to another 21 years to find a lager genuinely worthy of the Red Tail name.
