COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Some light bread y tones, vegetative with a bitter sweetness and bitter sweet lagered notes. Thin light boring session ale. 21 years and this is the recipe you came up with, that’s insulting.

12 oz bottle (thanks Pam). Some roasted grains, light caramel, grass, light copper, bubblegum, and a minor citrus in the aroma. Pour had very small fizzing head, light body, and a golden orange color. Palate was flatter than you would expect from a lager like this. Could have had a slightly crisper bite to it. Nothing off in the flavors, but not also not as refreshing as it could be. The richer caramel and roasty malts actual take away from the nice grass, light citrus, and mixed pale grains for me. It all just didn’t mix quite that well. So this was not a bad beer, as it was somewhat interesting, its just that I couldn’t really see anytime when I would really be in the mood to pick this one up to drink.

Not as good as the red tail ale. Very drinkable however. This is a good beer to introduce to your macro friends.

Bottled. Poured hazy medium amber with a short-lived cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up toasted grains, caramel, and honey with dry spices and floral accents.. malty overall and pleasant enough. The flavor found light fruits in addition to honey and caramel at the core.. tacky malts with mild floral bitterness on the edges.. a bit tangy on the finish. Lighter-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. decent balance, but the tacky malts on the back kept it from being refreshing. OK stuff.

A bit of soy on the aroma, but a very nice and refreshing cherry quality on the flavor. Not the best, but a very nice session beer. A very nice LAGER to boot!
