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.

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 (7011) - Tampere, 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 (1429) - 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.

JFGrind (1848) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Two dollar draft special @ Rock Bottom KOP. Red bodied, strong white head, light bodied with a hoppy aftertaste. Middle of the road, yet quaffa me beer.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear amber with a medium white head and good lacing. Caramelly, bready, grassy, earthy, biscuity, and earthy aroma. Taste is husky, caramel, bready, soapy, lightly grassy, and malty with a crisp finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad.

b3shine (5558) - Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Draft to taster at Rock Bottom Cincinnati. Looks solid; a transparent copper with foamy white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of malt and light hops with a touch of caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.

crossovert (7563) - Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Just and absolutely mundane red ale. Not super malty or hoppy, perfect for the people who want bland beer that is colored differently.

BeerandBlues2 (9765) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Tap. Pours clear copper to amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and toast malt, apple esters and earthy hops. Flavor is malt and hop balanced with a clean character and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
