Ah yes, the Redhawk. Rockyardís bread and butter that can be found in restaurants all around Castle Rock. I was never that impressed with it, personally. It has a nice red color, but I didnít think there was a lot to the flavor. A nice beer to go with a meal, but thatís about it.

Pours deep red, very carbonated. Nose of old wood, plum, bread. Taste is kind of like chewing on a stick, as the nose suggests. Not very good.

A Scottish ale that tastes like a common red. Hops are more pronounced than the malt. Was thinking Odell's 90 and got Killian's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had wanted this to be a much better beer, but was very underwhelmed. When it arrived in the 20oz glass, the colour looked spot-on. There was a distinct lack of head, with a small ring of off-white bubble rimming the glass. I might have chalked this up to glassware cleaning practices, but then I tried the beer. There was virtually nothing for the nose to find, and surprisingly little for the tongue as well. It was very light in the body, not the ímedium bodyí as in the description, and not at all balanced to me. The beer leaned heavily towards the bitter side of the spectrum, but not in the good, hoppy IPA way. Iím wondering if there are water chemistry issues that are not taken into account with recipe formulation?

12 ounce bottle - I bought this because it was a buck fiddy - also, because I am apparently a dumbass that doesnít learn from his mistakes - if I werenít, I would have realized that I havenít really cared for any Rockyard products Iíve had - if I werenít, I would have saved myself from this charred, ashy, sour and overall soil/dirt tasting train wreck of a Scottish ale - but I am, so...

Bottle thanks to Aaron. Pours reddish brown. Nose/taste of caramel, toasted malt, nuts and baked bread. Touch of hop bitterness. Medium body. Finishes clean with touch of burnt caramel malt on back of palate.

DiarmaidBHK (3524) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a rapidly disappearing head. Not much on the nose. Small hint of caramel on the nose. A tad astringent on the tongue with a little eek of caramel. Clean finisher. Eh.

Mild caramel aroma with just a slight toast feel. Clear amber color. Sticky semi sweet palate with a lingering creamy finish. Good toast feel.
