A Northern California classic. A rich caramel and nutty aroma amber ale that goes down easy. Nice thickness in appearance. Too bad Mendocino Brewing Company is going through tough times and we might not be able to get Red Tail much longer.

Trader Joe's. OK beer. Red amber. Cloudy. Bitter after taste. There are better choices at Trader Joe's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From old tasting notes. Cloudy, reddish orange color. Small creamy beige head. Fragrant malt/hop aroma. Spicy toasted malt flavor. Complex malt flavor upfront.nAssertive hop finish is dry and crisp. Long bitter aftertaste. Nice balance.

Solid offering from this under-rated NorCal brewery. These guys are OG all the way - they’ve been kicking it since 1983. The brew isn’t quite as dank as homegrown products of the area, but Red Tail Amber is a solid example of the style. Clean on the palate, nice malt balance, and enough hops to keep it real. Good beer to sip with a few bong loads while waiting for the NBA final game to start. Go Warriors!
