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.

berkshirejohn (4462) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
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 isnít - but it was a pleasant surprise.

Sampler@RB Campbell, 31/08/12. Slim-lidded bronze. Brown toast and marzipan aroma; red apple hints. Could almost be Abbot; cherry boiled sweet and chocolate streaks, orange wine gum. Good dull generic red/brown brew.

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.

phaleslu (6397) - 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.

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.

DrnkMcDermott (2792) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Draft at RB Yorktown. A bit hazy in a red body. The smell is a little generic and hard to define, I guess thatís what is meant by "balanced." But thereís a good, thick caramel malt taste, featured predominately over some peppery hop notes.
