COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic example of an American Red, Rocco Red Ale has enough caramel malts to stand up to the pungent pine and citrus flavors and aromas from the Chinook, Cascade and Columbus hops. The malty goodness, balanced bitterness and plenty of classic hop character may just have you writing home to mom!

brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
This is the first batch of what will become a new production beer of theirs. They didnt have a catchy name for it yet, so at this point its just "Red Ale". A: The pour lives up to the expectations of the style. Amber in color with a finger of khaki colored head. S: Starts off with a nice citrus hop note of grapefruit and tangerine. The hops quickly segue to the malt aromas of toast and bread. A mild toffee aroma and some red fruit flavors. T: A similar story on the palate. Grapefruit and tangerine hops and just a subtle pine bitterness. Toasted bread, toffee, and a slight caramel sweetness. There are some red berry type flavors in there as well. M: Medium in body and carbonation. O: Looking to see what kind of tweaks that will be made to this beer as they continue to brew it.

bhensonb (14617) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bomber from Craft Beer Kings. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma is treacle/toffee with suggestions of hops. Med body, at least. Flavor is rather hoppy - citrus/pine, accompanied by some nifty thinly treacle malt flavors. Its all a little thin, but the flavors are robust in combination - was that a contradiction there? Anyway, its maltily, hoppily spritely. Making me think of rum and coke. Non sequitur. Tasty drink, but a bit unusual.

slowrunner77 (11034) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Interesting brew. Malty and bready like an Irish red...but hoppier, and with a bigger body. Then as it warms it becomes creamy on the nose, flavor and feel, which ends up my favorite part.

shrubber85 (11011) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Buttery toffee malt, light alcohol, and fresh hay aroma. Dark amber with moderate head. Moderately sweet nutty toffee malt and moderately bitter quinine/fresh hay flavor. Good body - finishes a bit boozy.

13th May 2015: on tap in JFAT (Jimmys Famous American Tavern) Dana Point, Orange County. Chestnut red and clear, the fast fading head being beige in colour. Malty molasses rule the nose and taste with a chocolate like finish to the treacle/caramel flavours: my sweet tooth like it.

Patrickctenchi (6364) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Bottle: Nearly clear, dark amber with a small beige head. Slightly spicy/woody caramel malt, maybe a little blood orange in the aroma? Flavour is sweet caramel malt, orange malt, a little pine with a mild citrus-peel bitter. Bright and lively...... One of the better Ambers Ive had in a while.
