Amber in color. They claim that it has a citrus taste to it... ? Not really, more cherry maybe with malts underneath it all. Medium head and medium lace and leaves a bitter dry hop finish. The bitterness lingers quite a bit too. Not a bad beer at all.

Serving type: on-tap

Probably the best of the lot aside from the stout. Poured a reddish hued amber witha nice half inch white head that had a decent lace retention level. Smell was grainey with a bit of a pine mixed in. Nice malty character in the aroma. First impression was a little light, but it kinda grew on me. Nice baalnce and a good use of a caramel sweetness that was not evident in the beginning but kinda snuck up on you as it went on. Overall this was a very easily drinkable ale, and a good call when at the bar. Easily the most sessionable of their brews and a nice one on a warm night.

Reviewed in 2004, but at wrong restaurant:

Best beer Rock Bottom Brewery makes in my opinion. Combines a rich, malty flavor from British Crystal malt with a distinct citrus flavor of Cascade hops. A medium bodied beer that is rather enjoyable. Nice mouthfeel and appearance. However, I could not drink this all evening.

A pleasant surprise from the oh-so-average beers offered at RB. cask conditioning makes the beer.

Deep crimsom red in color with a half inch head of thick, dense, creamy beige head that laces beautifully.

Aromas are semi-sweet caramel roasted malts, light fruit notes, and a nice blend of floral and lightly citric hops.

Flavor is appropriately malty with a unexpected hop kick. Smooth, and well balanced with just the right ratio of sweet malts to hoppy bitterness.

Medium bodied with a silky smooth texture and a creamy mouthfeel. Great on cask!

PS-If I knew that this was my 300th review, I'd have picked something more interesting!
