12 ounce bottle. Mendocino Red Tail Ale pours out an amber color with a small head that quickly fades away. Malty aroma with some floral notes. Toasted malt flavor. Some ale fruitiness. This beer has a sharp bitting flavor and an off-putting astringency. There's not much hop flavor. Other than a dry finish, this beer does not taste particularly good. Carbonation is a high. The mouthfeel is a little thin. This beer is all around average.

Drank from one pint lager glass at about 60F
Malt, brown sugar, molasses, and caramelized red meat juices are abundant and well balanced. Sounds heavy but it is not at all. Does have a booze taste, but it matches the flavor profile and is very faint...I like it.
Immensely drinkable and refreshing. I do tend towards this brew during the winter months though. This is not a heavy hop American ale.
The price is what is greatest. Between Obama's America and his hidden inflation and the current trend of craft brews escalating in price, this is a much welcomed sensibility priced every day bargain pearl of a brew.

Had this on cask at the local pub. It was the 2nd day of the cask, had a nice head to it the aroma was slight caramel and oats. The oatmeal taste was fantastic. Cask is the best way to enjoy this stout, it really brings out the taste. Had this on bottle once and thought it was just a middle of the road beer. Cask makes all the difference.
