bhensonb (14956) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Decent malt aroma. Darkly pale golden color. A frothy white head that sticks a while and even laces a bit. Swishes to a decent mouth feel. It finishes with enough hop to balance malt. The carbonation is not overwhelming. I just cant figure out how to describe the start - everything seemed to arrive at once. Good for a lager.

argo0 (14106) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 24, 2005
(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.
