COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rally Drum Red Ale is an American Red Ale, a modern non-traditional style borrowing heavily from characteristics associated with more classical styles such as “pale ales” or “bitters.” This unfiltered copper-colored ale is brewed with a blend of Harrington 2-Row Base Malt, Crystal 77, and Special Roast malts, yielding a toasty layered complexity. Cascade and Simcoe hops add bitterness and aroma.

2.5
Dogbrick (13151) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Sample at Gallo’s Tap Room. The beer is a dark copper-red color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and butterscotch. Light body with a sweet malt character and notes of vinegar and fruit. The finish is lightly hopped with a buttery aftertaste. Think there was something wrong with this but being a brand new tapping not a good sign.

1.3
crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Great Lake’s "red ale" offering. Man these things are a dime a dozen. This beer is bereft of character.

3.5
deyholla (11759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 19, 2012
On tap at SPSBF. Pours a clear reddish amber with a cream brown head that retains throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of caramel and sweet grains with some backing grassiness. Flavor has a earthy grain backbone with a bit of sweetness from caramel and a nice grassy hop overtone.

3.3
BVery (10609) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Tap at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Clear amber pour, cream colored head. Caramel malt and earthy hops in this one. Solid.

3.5
alexsdad06 (10486) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Growler sample shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a small white head. The aroma has caramel malts, lightly toasted, grass, resiny and earthy hops. The flavor is much of the same; almost qualifies as a lighter ipa.

3.5
phaleslu (10336) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2014
Draft served in a pint glass at HalfCut. Pours a clear reddish amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasty and sweet and biscuit malts, dried leaves, earth, and a bit of toffee. The malts aren’t as dominant in the flavor, which has a lingering earthy hop note along with all of the above. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, malty mouthfeel. Good amber ale.
