COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Signature beer. Brewed to the same recipe in all locations. A very robust Red ale made with Centennial and Cascade hops which lend a spicy finish to the beer. We have brewed more Sharkbite Red ale than any other beer on our menu. Alcohol Varies.

Fresh hop nose, orange amber color, foamy head. Fruity malt taste with a bitter back side. Fresh Cascade (or similar) hops with a high resolution. Just a big big bright hop infusion on this that is lovely. Dry like a martini. Amazing hop experience geared towards hop heads like me.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2004
This is a well made, full on quality amber. Slightly piney and yeasty nose. Beautiful red amber in appearance. Full bodied brew with a rich malt backbone - not as syrupy as some reds can be. Balanced nicely wth the grapefruity hops. A small amount of cookie dough on the finish. This is a terrific everyday brew. Thanks to Dark Elf for the sample.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Appearance: nearly clear, and fully crimson, nicely retained bubblinng beige head. Aroma: malty, toasty, ripely fruity. Taste is freshly flavorful, bright and replete with dark fruit, grape and cherry, little hoppiness, rich in malt. Drinkability’s a dream, medium/light bodied, swift, but pleasant finish, though it’s a sturdy, quaffable delight, when all’s told. Flavor never ends, either, keeps on a bursting in the mouth. That’s always a good thing. When you just need a tasty quncher, this ably fills the bill.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Somewhat malty nose. Malt carries through well, with a good balance of hoppiness and just a touch ofrastiness. An easy drinking brew.

YogiBeera (2499) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Bitter hoppy and grassy and also malty nose. Amber color, small layer of a head. Short light bitter kick which lasts medium long.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Bottle. Copper pour with a decent head, aroma of roasted malt and hops. Good malt to hops balance, nice bitter finish, one of the better ambers I’ve had. Glad I took a chance and bought a sixer at San Clemente for $6.99.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2004
Draught at Pizza Port (Carlsbad), California.
White head, hazy dark orange body. Quite week fruity and grassy aroma. Also fruity, grassy and light malty in the flavor. Not very interesting but drinkable!

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Thanks to Lord Gorlock for another fine souvenir of the 2004 World Tour. This pours a deep Copper with hints of red. The head is thick and creamy. Very weak aroma. Some malt and hop character, but thin and somewhat weak overall.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Light rufous with a mild haze. Compact, lacy ivory foam. Heavily malted nose with tangy plums, buttered caramel, dates, and peach esters. Whsipers of powdery malt, perfumey/earthy hops and pine. Ample body. Fine, dense carbonation, yet fluffy and full. Substantial earthy hop bitterness withstands the thick malt wall and caramel-covered nuts. Hops gain more bushiness toward the core, deflecting the sweet malts and igniting the slippery, fruit esters. Soft body embraces the jellied malt textures with ensuing caramelized banana flavors and slight sharpness of the roasted malt hulls. Malts are slightly chalky, as well. Remains chewy and thickly malted into then finish with lasting date sweetness amid snippets of apple acidity, grainy roast, and fresh hops. Quintessential session brew.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Sweet fruit permeate the full body before green hops come on strong in the end…Oranges and red apple skins tease the tongue but the lack of complexity of this style usually bores me and this is no exception…The near-Belgian carbonation works wonders for the citrusy and resinous hops...More a shark lick than a shark bite, but a very fun-loving one at that, and a very good West Coast session…
