Premium British two-row malts give this beer a sweet malty character and plenty of hops give it a crisp finish. Editor's Note: This is one of Rock Bottom's standard brews and is available at many locations.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2007
On tap (sampler) at the Bethesda location, July 2006. More copper than red. Decent balance of dry malt and earthy hop. Rather reminiscent of an English bitter in character. Quite decent.

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Bethesda location. Amber clear appearance. Fruity nose with light to moderate hop presence, mostly a fruit cocktail, pear and lightly toasted grain nose. Flavor is similar, lightly bitter, lightly hoppy pears and marachino cherries. Wet and slick palate, seems to be the standard with Rock Bottom beer. Just drinkable.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear orange color with thin off white head that laced the glass. Malty biscuit, caramel aroma. Flavor is similar with a hint of milk chocolate and toasted bread.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught at Brewpub during RBSG DC 06 Weekend Copper color, light amber, light head and lacing. Nose of light fruity malt, no hops though. The flavor is balanced, but has no body, no subtle roast and a characterless persona. Uh.

tap at brewpub-copper amber with a soapy white head. nice lacing once again from this one. nose is malty with lingering piney hops. flavors are balanced between sweet caramel malts and dry piney hops. well done once again. similar to the pale ale but with more malt presence. finish is sweet with lingering hop accents. very decent and refreshing amber ale.

Tap. Not a huge fan of reds but this one isn’t bad. Flowery aroma, light and sweet. Very faint hop taste.

Ungstrup (30489) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2006
Bethesda location. A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with a light touch of hops. While the flavor is sweet with strong notes of berries and caramel, as well as lighter notes of wood, leading to a dry bitter finish. I find it somewhat boring.

hopscotch (10083) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Draft... Bethesda location... Mostly clear amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The nose is a marriage of caramel, grapefruit, pine and apricot. Sturdy malt, but not standout. Hopped nicely. Leans slightly on the bitter side of balance. Medium-bodied with sufficient carbonation. Bone-dry finish.
