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.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 7, 2007
Pours a darl gold with a thick white head. Slightly sour malt aroma. Earthy, grainy, sour sweet tang in the taste department. Not very enjoyable. Thick mouthfeel. Bitter finish. I’ll slip past this one next time.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Somewhat hazy dark golden liquid with a small, somewhat diminishing off-white head. Mild aromas with some pale malt, mild orange citrus and floral hops. Mild caramel flavors with a lightly herbal middle (wintergreen). Fairly thick in feel. Some flavors that remind me of eating a day old doughnut. Dryer finish with just a hint of herbal hops.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2007
Bottle, Lager Glass. light aroma a bit of light sweet malts, no hop presence. Taste is pretty light fairly watery, nothing special here at all. Ill be honest for a premium lager its pretty decent a slight bitter and dry finish. Not too bad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2007
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-amber color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma was faintly malty but nothing stood out. The flavor was light tangy malts with a hint of floral and fruity hops. There was a light sour nutty undertone.

thedm (4927) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 1, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty and brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of hops and brown malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

BeerandBlues2 (9457) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Bottle. Pours sparkling orange with spare rocky white head, mostly lasting, spare head. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, nutty), light hops (grass), average yeast (dough) with notes of apple, dates and honey. Light bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation and a chalky finish. Moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2007
From a 12 oz. bottle with a short blurb on the neck label, no freshness date, sampled at a cooler cellar temperature in a lager glass. Poured a clear golden hued amber with a foamy white head that settled into a thin creamy lacing, small amount of sticking. Aromas of sweet dusty grainy malts, lager yeast and a light spiciness. Good, even carbonation and a malty crisp, dry, smooth medium mouthfeel. A pleasant lager taste, sweet grain bready with a light pinch of sugar, a soft lemon flavor, a touch of spiciness without much bitter, and a dry husky, sweet, spicy malty finish, pretty neat and clean. Not a bad lager, tasty on rainy, humid, warm midwestern spring day.

heemer77 (5098) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2007
From a bottle. The body was dark gold with a light khaki head. The aroma was spicy bell pepper and some potatoes. The taste was bitter grass with some spice at the end. The mouthfeel was fairly full. A decent lager.

Ratman197 (9542) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, bread and hints of butterscotch and citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, light carmel and a hint of earthiness with a crispo mildly bitter finish.
