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!

I had this on tap at The Pint House in Fullerton. It’s an amber colored pour with an off white head. The flavor has a very good balance of hops and malt. Very tasty and drinkable.

Tap at the brewery. Rating #6. Great looking beer, slight haze and it was a beautiful dark red color. Nice aroma, nice bit of hops with a nice light toasty sweetness. Flavor was similar, good bit if hops balanced by a nice maltiness that made it real drinkable, good stuff. (1799)

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. It’s all a little thin, but the flavors are robust in combination - was that a contradiction there? Anyway, it’s maltily, hoppily spritely. Making me think of rum and coke. Non sequitur. Tasty drink, but a bit unusual.

Patrickctenchi (6588) - Cox’s 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 I’ve had in a while.

shrubber85 (11408) - 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.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
This is the first batch of what will become a new production beer of theirs. They didn’t have a catchy name for it yet, so at this point it’s 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.

Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Crisp hoppy and fruity. Bitter and smooth fruity, toasted malty. Ends bitter and crisp hoppy into the finish.
