3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours crystal clear copper with lasting off white head. The aroma is sweet crystal malts, citrus to spicy to floral hops and just a sense of oxidation or maybe just a note or two of earthy like hops. The taste is caramely sweet with even more sweetness coming from crystal malts. There’s also some pleasing levels of floral to spicy hops too. The hops lead into grapefruit, tangelo and more floral hops beyond midway and into the finish creating a nice balance with the sweetness.

Minimal aroma, lots of malt, low on bitter and hop flavor. Well made (great head and lacing) but nothing special. An average well made amber.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red Rock on cask (6.0%) at the brewpub. Nice hop aroma. Dark reddish color with a good beige head. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Caramel malt with a hint of vanilla and a good amount of floral hop. Finish is dry with roast malt, tinge of vanilla, and a decent amount of bitter. Quite good. My rating may seem high, but this was real ale - has to be better than the dead stuff on tap.

SF Int’l Beer Fest - Not a bad bit of beer. Aroma had a roasty quality to it, but not over the top. It also had a slight hop nose to it too. Appearance had a reddish orange/amber hue to it. Mouthfeel was full bodied, not harsh in the least and clean finishing. Flavors were malty, slightly roasted and nicely bittered. Like I said, not bad.
