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.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a average sized head. Aroma is of light malts, barley, and mild citrus. Flavor is nice and crisp. Light hops and malts with a slight tartness. I found it to be a nice basic very drinkable beer.

nearbeer (3677) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2009 12 oz bottle dispensed in quart jar. Orange-copper beer with 4 finger, lasting head. Aroma is mostly typical lager: skunk piss in the pines; maybe just baby skunk, not the papa. Typical lager taste with some nice small touches of caramel and nut. Light to medium-light palate. Dry finish and aftertaste. Not bad, but not really worth going out of your way for either. If they packaged it differently, it could probably skunk up real nice and pass for any number of green bottle lagers. Rerate - actually was a better than average lager.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Nice aroma and pours very nice with a light amber color. The flavor however pales in comparison to the Red Tale Ale. Very weak and leaves a unpleasant aftertaste.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with much effervescence and a small white head. The aroma is malty with some bread and biscuit; there are also hay-like hops, some dark spice, and an ever-so-slight vegetal note. The flavor is hay-like with somewhat spicy hops, followed by bread and toast. Canteloupe in finish. Drinkable, but it leaves a very strange aftertaste.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Bottle. Small off-white semi-fizzy head that mostly diminished with no lacing, visible carbonation, transparent, and an orange hue. Nose was malty, caramel, ,hoppy and some bitter notes. Flavor was hoppy, caramel, some maltiness, and lightly bitter tasting. Tingly mouthfeel. Light-medium body. Quaffable and a decent lager.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Pours a frost-hazed amber with a mediocre, yellowhite head that settles as scummy ice floes. Lemony, pastry-like aroma with floral notes. Balanced flavor moves from sweet to bitter, finishing on Hallertau or Saaz... sharp & musty. Well-put-together.

ABUSEDGOAT (2361) - California, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Clear orange, large and rapidly dissipating head, no lacing or retention. Aroma is bread, grain, cereal, light caramel. Flavor brings this, light acidity. Light bodied and boring, not very refreshing either. Next please.

Suttree (5131) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Clear Orange, with a large rocky white head. Bready, peppery aroma. Smooth and clean, with a bready, toasty flavor. Some mild bite in the finish. Nicely quaffable.

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Pours copper with a good sized soapy light tan head. The aroma is grainy pale malt, light butter and light spice. Medium body with lots of semi-soft carbonation. Starts wtih smooth malt, butter, some spice and light smooth fruitiness. If this had more of a grainy taste and less butteriness it would help tremendously. The finish adds a bit of spicy hops. An okay lager.
