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.

MarkoR (536) - 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 (171) - 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.

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 (7413) - 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 (1554) - 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 (1860) - 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.

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2013
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 (5844) - 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.
