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.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap at Rock Bottom Denver. Amber and clear appearance with a small diminishing white head. Mild aroma of toasted malts, citrus fruit, earthy hops and bread. Bland flavor adds light caramel and a touch of pepper/spice. Light thin body. No thanks.

jbuskirk (411) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Essentially, this tastes like a watered down amber ale. Little hop character and/or malt sweetness. Not worth having.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
A copper red ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet nutty caramel malt with light grassy hops. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light cloying sweetness, light bodied, boring. On tap at RB Chicago.

MarkoR (491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap, at Rock Bottom Chicago. Pours an reddish colour with foamy white head. Aroma and taste is hops, malts, some caramel. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Azand222 (170) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Draft. The aroma is mild and malty. The favor is a little bitter, but overall mild. This beer is not a stand out red ale, but drinkable.

jmagnus87 (2401) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Draft. From notes. Caramel malt with some slight hop bitterness. Drinkable, but nothing super special.

robloc303 (268) - Erie, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours reddish amber, no head, with aroma of mild malt, brown sugar, and a hint of caramel. Taste is very light, malty, some caramel and mildly bitter. Easy to drink, very light, but not much flavor.

rosenbergh (6522) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Draught at the Rock Bottom, Chicago, IL. 5.7%.
Clear amber colour with a small creamy off-white head. Mild sweetness and malt in a weak aroma. Sweet malt, mild hops and mild bitterness in the flavour. Boring!

DCLawyer (1363) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Draft at Rock Bottom Arlington. Pours a reddish copper with a small white head. Aroma and taste are faint caramel malt and floral hops. Balanced but unexciting.

Rather flat, but it grew on me after a disappointing first taste. Not terribly flavourful, but not altogether bad.
