Ah yes, the Redhawk. Rockyards bread and butter that can be found in restaurants all around Castle Rock. I was never that impressed with it, personally. It has a nice red color, but I didnt think there was a lot to the flavor. A nice beer to go with a meal, but thats about it.

12 oz bottle. Pours light golden amber with a small fizzy white head that goes to a thin film that leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet fruity caramel malt with some grassiness and a little peat.

The flavor is sweet vegetal malts with a little grassy peat. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery.

Overall, not very good.

Bottle poured a slightly hazy orange-copper hue w/ minimal fully diminishing head. Light cardboard aroma. Initial flavor moderate sweet w/ a faint bitter finish. Tastes are brown sugar, malt, cardboard, and over-ripe peaches. Flat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, slight red fruit into a bit of yeast, slight grainy notes into a bit of toasted bread. Taste was a mix of orange, caramel, toffee into some toast, slight red fruit with a hint of grass, slight floral notes, finishing slightly sweet.

Pours deep red, very carbonated. Nose of old wood, plum, bread. Taste is kind of like chewing on a stick, as the nose suggests. Not very good.

A Scottish ale that tastes like a common red. Hops are more pronounced than the malt. Was thinking Odell's 90 and got Killian's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had wanted this to be a much better beer, but was very underwhelmed. When it arrived in the 20oz glass, the colour looked spot-on. There was a distinct lack of head, with a small ring of off-white bubble rimming the glass. I might have chalked this up to glassware cleaning practices, but then I tried the beer. There was virtually nothing for the nose to find, and surprisingly little for the tongue as well. It was very light in the body, not the medium body as in the description, and not at all balanced to me. The beer leaned heavily towards the bitter side of the spectrum, but not in the good, hoppy IPA way. Im wondering if there are water chemistry issues that are not taken into account with recipe formulation?

12 ounce bottle - I bought this because it was a buck fiddy - also, because I am apparently a dumbass that doesnt learn from his mistakes - if I werent, I would have realized that I havent really cared for any Rockyard products Ive had - if I werent, I would have saved myself from this charred, ashy, sour and overall soil/dirt tasting train wreck of a Scottish ale - but I am, so...

Bottle thanks to Aaron. Pours reddish brown. Nose/taste of caramel, toasted malt, nuts and baked bread. Touch of hop bitterness. Medium body. Finishes clean with touch of burnt caramel malt on back of palate.
