COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ungstrup (32859) - 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 (10522) - 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.

KUEric (922) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2006
on Tap in Bethesda: Red in color with little to no head above the copper beer. A weak and light aroma, not too much to speak of. Some malts, sweet brown sugar, and hops. Flavor is good, not great. Malts metallic, and a tad hoppier than many ambers Ive tried.

Tmoney99 (12984) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Draft sampler in Indy. Poured clear dark reddish amber with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Light roasted malt sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium bitter sweet flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration.

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 21, 2006
"Poured a red color with small head good carbonation. Aroma was sweet. Flavor was fruity hops and sweet good mix to it. Smooth throughout. Was a good beer."

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 6, 2006
On tap at the Bethesda location. Amber in color with a white head. No aroma. Great lacing. Tastes like a maltier version of the pale ale sold here. Has a bitter finish that lingers on the tongue. Lacks any serious flavor.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Sampled at R.B. Milwaukee ("Raccoon Red"). Both cask and standard tap. Light tan head, mostly lasting. Stale, but sweet malts, light urinal puck hints. Fruity mellowed hops, slightly fizzy body (5 / 4 / 6 / 3 / 12). Cask version is mostly flat, very evident grapefruit and orange hops. Give it an APA feel. Tart pez sweetness (6 / 4 / 6 / 3 / 13). Slightly better to me than the normal draught.

frankenkitty (1990) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Yeast particles hovered and settled in a thick hazed, deep copper brew with a creamy, off-tan head that reduced to a splotchy film and left thick lace. Aroma was lemony & peppery with a hint of green leaves. Smooth & well balanced with hopcit and lemon dominating the finish. Slightly thin but slick mouthfeel.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Nice lacing, ambery orange color with a sticky body that hangs around in the mouth. Mildly hoppy but not offensive. Decent example of the species. On tap at Campbell, CA.

hopdog (10731) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
On tap at the Milwaukee Location. Poured a medium copper color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel and some hops. Nothing much more.
