I recently purchased the Red Tail Lager from my local homebrew store after a recommendation from the owner. My feedback is mixed.

The appearance is deep brownish gold and poured a little hazy. This was a little surprising for a lager.

The smell is the best part of this brew. Wonderful caramel sweetness with an expected hop aroma.

The taste was a little sweet for my taste for a lager. I'd like a bit more clean finish for any lager.

The mouthfeel is the biggest bummer of this brew. Almost flat in taste.

Serving type: bottle

A very nice beer. It has a Good flavor, color, and aroma. Not bitter or too happy. Also has a reasonable price. Would recommend it highly along with the other Mendocino beers. Definitely will get it again. Nice to find a beer that isn't technically local but has a local brewery.

Serving type: growler
