Sampled on September 20, 2009. The color is a kind of copper-red tone with a thin beige head. The aroma is pleasing enough with a mixture of sweetness and malts. The mouthfeel is medium with a honey like texture. The taste is sweet and rich with some nice bitter hops as well. A nicely done red ale.

Welcome to Manchester!!! Arrived at Manchester airport for a 1/2 marathon over in New Market. Was picked up by my bro-in-law and quickly swept away to Milly's Tavern to begin our pre-race inebriation. The Tasha's Red Tail Ale was a solid beer. The color was definitely red with thin head that left a good lace. There was light malt on the nose. The taste was malty and lil sweet. The mouthfeel was fine...could drink alot of it if I had to. Certainly worth a try.

Dark, muddy amber color--almost brown actually. I was hoping my red ale would be more, um...red. Thin white head that was gone as soon as it came.

Aroma is a pleasant citrus hop and biscuit malt blend. Taste is similar albiet a tolerable, but noticeable, cloying light caramel sweetness in back. Honey-esque.

I like it.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a dark, deep, chestnut coloring with a thin, filmy, off-white head that clings well. Aromas of malt sweetness with a touch of hazelnut and smoke. Flavors are malty and bold, with a chocolatey highlight throughout and a solid toffee backbone. Smooth, balanced malt bomb. Rich, sweet aftertaste is like a warm caramel hot chocolate. Smooth, slightly cloying finish. Tasty brew.

This red ale poured a light red-amber color with white foam that left lace on the glass. The smell was malty but mild. The taste was dominated by malt, but with a touch of hop bitterness, especially in the finish. There was also a slight caramel sweetness in the flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth, but a little thin. The body was medium with decent carbonation. The drinkability was good. This seems to be a popular beer at the brewpub.
