“It took 21 years to make a lager worthy of the Red Tail name..." A lawnmower beer?
Golden amber, pale in body with a head that vanishes nearly instantaneously, it has a sweet caramel aroma devoid of hops. Watery body, it delivers a slightly metallic, caramel malt flavor and no hop bitterness at all. The finish is sugar water. No mas!

(12oz bottle) Clear apple juice body topped by a small and quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma is mild, medium sweet, cereal, orange, faint grassy. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, orange, bread, some cereal, some floral, lager yeast. Minimal bitterness. Watery light body with minimal crispness. They should ditch this one and spend up to another 21 years to find a lager genuinely worthy of the Red Tail name.
