COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This original amber ale is inspired by the "Steam" style of beer. Whereas a "Steam" is a lager beer fermented at an elevated ale-type temperature, Red Rose is an ale fermented at a lower lager-type temperature. Like a "Steam," Red Rose combines a crisp lager refreshingness with a robust ale fruitiness. A lovely citrus-pine hop character is present from start to finish.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Bottled. Poured rich, hazy brown with just as much dense off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted caramel and nutty notes with accents of molasses and vanilla.. sweet overall, sporting some dusty yeast. The flavor found some fruit along with caramel and molasses at the core.. dry and spicy at the back end, and I cant tell for the life of me where it came from.. bitter and sharp pine notes stuck on the finish. Medium-bodied and well carbonated on the palate.. again sharp, but for no good reason.. OK stuff, but I dont need another.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2010
Bootle. Pours a reddish deep amber. Good slightly rocky head. Some lacing. Aroma is all about the malt with plenty of caramel and bready malt. Some citrusy hops but these really are in the back ground. Flavours are much the same with plenty of malt sweetness. Good resiny bitter finish. Good beer

islay (2365) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Cookie to biscuit aroma. Chalk dryness. Candied flower smell. Pleasant but not outstanding or particularly strong aroma. Am I detecting Belgian-esque yeast? Pours a bronze to sable color, maybe with some copper. More light brown than amber in color. Hazy from the yeast. Large amount of surprisingly thick, uneven, long-lasting, light taupe-colored head. Produces good lacing. Dry taste. Low on flavor but not unpleasant. Cardboard. Some fruit that is hard to identify: Maybe pomegranate? Floral flavor. A touch of metal in the finish (not a good thing). Light body. Mineral water-like palate effects. Baird Red Rose Amber Ale probably is better than this score indicates, and it is interesting, but no more so than one would expect from a hybrid style like California Common.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
(nice) cloying sweet aroma, very floral and fruity -- peaches and grapefruit. blurry amber, thick frothy bright beige head. flavor is much milder, lots of floral and some fruit, but slightly watery. somewhat thin, carbonation got lost in the head, leaves mild boring finish.

( 12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours cloudy orange with nice head/bubbles. Nose of honey, floral hops. Taste is juniper, pine, florals. Finishes with spices and florals on the palette and a nice body.

Bottle from bu11zeye. The smell is very grainy, some malts, hops, ok combo. The look is cloudy, copper colored, and has a whitish head. The taste is malts, hops, slight citrus, not bad.
