Over all I would rate this as a great beer but it could use a little more head and a little more carbonation. The appearance is a cloudy reddish brown that looked more like a brown ale than a red ale. There was a nice balanced complexed flavor of toasted malt with a slight hops taste. This beer would complement any meal or be equally good by itself. I would order this beer again just for the sheer enjoyment of drinking it. A very good beer from a small start-up brewery in Northern Alabama.

Got this from the mellow mushroom in Auburn. It poured a cloudy brown. Nice cream colored head with moderate lacing. The smell was dominated by malts. Nice mouthfeel with a combination of sweet malts with a very slight hoppy finish. Decent beer from a young brewery. Also tried the corduroy rye ipa by B.P. which was different but very nice!

Randomly on tap at a restaurant in Auburn. Very happy to see a local brewery represented so I gave it a go. Pleased I did, as it turned out to be an enjoyable beer.

Murky brown beer (poor lighting) with a pillow of tan foam. Great looking head on the beer, odd color of the beer itself. I'm used to red ales being way more red.

Decent smell dominated by malts including some subtle chocolate aromas.

Interesting flavor for a red ale. I guess I don't feel like it's a red ale, more like a brown ale. Still, good malts and a muted hop balance.

Creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation, and a hefty beer. You will be full after a pint of this. That said, another pint was a good thing.

I would say for a new brewery, this is a fine effort and way better than the average beer.

Aroma: Knickerbocker Red presents with a sweet nose. There is a little woodiness in the nose as well.

Taste: The initial taste has a sweetness. The hops are very mellow, but they arrive late in the taste and hold on to the finish. The finish is a little alkaline, too.

Appearance: For an up-start brewery, I would say that the appearance is very nice. I expect it to improve as brewing techniques improve for them as I had my tasting at their release party.

Notes from the launch event on Oct. 2nd, 2010 at The Nook.

A: Very murky brownish-red, somewhat a rust color. Slow rising bubbles. Small tan head.

S: Very feint pine hops, notes of caramel, and a bit biscuity.

T: Balanced. Hops and malt are evenly woven. Not complex, as the flavor remains fairly constant throughout. Finish is slightly sweet caramel.

M: Medium bodied, but quite filling.

D: The balance to this makes it easy down. Not a brew with an overly dominant flavor. I'd personally prefer a little more aggressive hop. Could use some tweaking from this new brewery.
