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.

KUEric (889) - San Francisco, California, 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.

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.

"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 (1981) - 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 (9940) - 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.

lamas (1457) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 9, 2005
On tap at Rock Bottom in Bethesda, MD. Pours a nice cherry Kool-Aid red with small light creamy head. Aroma was nicely balanced between malts and hops along with some strawberries and hints of yeast. Taste started with just a bit of sweet malts and finished more strongly with some hoppy bitterness along with subtle tangy yeasty and strawberry flavors. On the thin side.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2005
Tasted at the Bethesda, MD rock bottom. Not a bad brew. A little bit of malty aroma. It is a bright red color with a diminishing white head in the pint glass. Starts a little sweet but quickly is backed up by a mild bitterness. Nothing terribly original or outstanding, but nothing offensive.
