COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flavorful and complex, our Red Ale is copper in color and medium-bodied with a rich malt profile. Crystal hops lend a robust, fruity hop character for balance.

Tap @ Rock Bottom Yorktown. Light amber with small head. Medium malt. A lot of crystal malt. Doesn’t do much for me.

Ferris (4482) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Draft - Toasted malts, caramel and some light twig. Clear amber with a decent beige head. Toasted malts, toffee and a light bitterness. Slight chocolate notes as well. Decent.

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at the Richmond Short Pump location. Perfectly acceptable amber. Medium amber, slight head, clear. Aroma of caramel malts and slight citric hops. Flavor matched, but perhaps with more hops than expected, a good thing. Not bad, just boring.

miggle (180) - Fürth, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2014
Drought@rock bottom brewery, Chicago: very nice red color, basically no head. Some herbal note I can't define but weak smell. Also taste is quite week. Well balanced bitterness after a sweet start.

PhillyLagerMan (1) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2014 does not count
Solid taste but nothing special. Aroma was lacking. The after taste goes well especially with a burger or any other smokey food. But overall a decent brew

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
[Tap] Light amber colored pour without much head. Bready malts and mild hops in the nose. The taste is of caramel, toffee, nut, grains and mild hops. Light to medium body. Sweet finish. Nothing wrong with this.

Emeister84 (1038) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2014
Acidic aromas, vomit-like sharpness, soft berry notes. Clear red, lasting bubbly, off-white head. Dry, somewhat metallic, grainy. Light-medium bodied.

phaleslu (6607) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2014
Draft at Rock Bottom-Cincinnati. Pours a mostly clear amber color - not really red - with a small off-white head that leaves some streaks of lace. Notes of amber and caramel and toasty malts, grassy hops, and a little earth. Very simple. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Decent amber.
