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.

lamas (1536) - 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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Translucent rosy-orangey-copper in color with a creamy, celestial strategy on top. Almonds sweetened with pistachio sauce get aromatically sanded down. Pale cocoa powder and some good ol’ fashioned nougats in the nose meet a distant whetted cardboard accent. Flavor is a touch bolder that this location’s other year-rounders, giving amaretto flavored caramel cubes room to grow. Pistachios meet a mild cocoa simplicity, and when looking at the cherry toffee traits, we bring up thoughts of spumoni. Wholesome vanilla wafer graham crust gets caramel cubes pressed upon it. Semi-harsh and persistent bitterness mires peeling duct tape off of the right side of the tongue. Altogether, a decent drinker.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Tap: Reddish brown in color with a medium head. Aroma has some bitterness and hops with a small amount of hops. Decent balance in the taste, mild malt and a bit of hops. Clean, smooth, crisp.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Cask. Dry-hopped with Mt. Hood. Piney dry hop aroma. Muddled grapefruit flavor mingled with straw -- stinging and unidimensional. Good cereal accents but just not enough to provide balance. Thin mouthfeel.
