12 ounce bottle. Pours a slightly hazy ruby color with a small white head. A sweet fruity nose with cherries and especially strawberry. A rich caramel and fruit forward brew, some light toast, very sweet and not dry at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a reddish brown color with a huge foamy orange-tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was a bit tart with vague dark fruits and a bit of caramel. The flavor was tart and tangy with moderate dark fruits and a bit of bread. Medium length tangy dark fruit and bread finish. Medium body. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from House of 1000 Beers, New Kensington. This beer’s 50th rating. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of nutty notes, faint floral hops and toffeeish malts. The taste is nuts, chocolate, caramel malts, mild hops and a green banana-ish note. Medium bodied. Decent enough.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Belle couleur ambree sombre avec une effervescence intense, gros collet moelleux. Pour les compliments, ça s’arrete là. L’arome de pruneau cartonné me donne pas trop soif, en bouche c’est interessant mais les saveurs sont épuisantes, pas beaucoup de houblons, une touche chocolaté dans une marre de fruits trop sucrés.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Clear, deep, dark, ruby ale with a small, fizzy, taupe head. The aroma is just a simple marriage of my favorite things - chocolate and caramel malts with a light splash of coffee. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with lazy carbonation. The flavor mirrors the nose - malty milk chocolate and caramel with a suggestion of coffee and the perfect level of unassuming hop bitterness to prevent cloying. Finishes lightly sweet and nourishing. The perfect malty brew to sip on all day - especially when you’re not the one doing the driving.

Bottle via trade with Eric - thanks! Slightly murky reddish-brown pour with a quickly dissipating head. High carbonation in this - much zing on the tongue. Mild sweet malt and a little spicy grassy hops.

From bottle. Pours a deepred in color with small head. Aroma is sweet with a malty brown ale. Taste follows and is a mild typical red ale. decent offering but not special.

Tampa Bay Brew Bus Rollin Dirty Red Ale is your basic session Irish style red ale - nothing special but ok. Not much aroma but a nice expected red pour. Nice slightly roast malt flavor with slight bitter aftertaste. TBBBRDRA is a decent quaff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tampa Bay Brew Bus Rollin Dirty Red Ale has a medium, cream-colored head, a hazy, red-brown appearance, some streaming bubbles, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread crust, and the flavor is similar, with a nice and measured hop bitterness from the middle-to-end of the sip. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Tampa Bay Brew Bus Rollin Dirty Red Ale finishes mostly dry, smooth, mellow, interesting, and delicious. Overall, this is a really enjoyable beer. I’m glad I was able to try it. RJT
