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.

This poured a red color with a white head. Aroma was of toasted malt and grassy hops. Flavor similar, nothing outstanding but nothing offputting either.

Tap at Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA. Reddish amber with a tight white head; the aroma is hidden by the incredibly low temperature at which this is served; in the mouth there are lots of fruity berries and some dry grains, before a dry finish. I was expecting an Irish style Red Ale - which this definitely isn’t - but it was a pleasant surprise.

onceblind (4643) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2012
clear amber with a receding white head. Aroma was a little soft but included some light caramel, light biscuity toffee, and just a faint whiff of grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied and very average. I get some grainy toffee, a little bit of caramel, and a balancing bitterness which I am unable to describe further. Just tastes like a too-balanced average amber ale on a medium body.

cheap (4210) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Had this on tap at the new Bocktown in Monaca. Here it was called Fire Chief Red. Malty aroma. Big dark pour. Some bitterness inthe initial taste but suddenly there is this background tartness that makes it quite interesting. I like this attribute, it makes an otherwise medium bitter beer quite interesting. Yes, tartness makes it a little more interesting than yer typical red. At first the medium bitterness turned me off but the backdoor sour in this kept me coming back for more. Medium long bitter finsih, quite a personality.

sonnycheeba (3786) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Tap. Pours clear dark amber with thin, creamy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malts, figs, apples, floral hops, and light toast. Flavor is dry, bready malts forward with supporting floral hops (light bitterness), some dark fruit esters, and light leather; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Toasted malt and grain aroma, with light herbal hops and some caramel. Medium copper-amber clear with light haze and thin off white foamy lacing head. Medium body and medium light carbonation. Starts medium dry with nice hoo levels. Medium roast character and herbal hops. Finish is medium bitter with some nutty character.
