Fat Bottom "Ruby Red American Ale"
$6 on tap at Acme Feed & Seed - 5 April 2015
$ ? on tap at The Hop Stop - 8 April 2015

Appearance: Deep amber body beneath a short but creamy off-white head. Good head retention and lacing.

Aroma: Caramelish malt backed by some leafy/grassy hops.

Flavor: As the aroma suggests with some delicate middling caramel sweetness upfront, a healthy smear of leafy, grassy and subtly piney hops across the middle and into the finish. It leans just slightly towards malt sweetness at first but a firm bitterness then leads it to a dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to medium-light in body with a median, gently bristling carbonation.

Overall: Clean. Well-made. Basic American amber ale with a little bit of an extra kick.

Had this beer apart of a sampler flight at the brewery.

A: Amber/Red in color. Pours a medium to heavy white/creamy head.
S: Sweet caramel with some earthiness to it.
T: Some caramel, slight citrus flavor. Malty but not overpowering.
M: Medium mouthfeel. Chrisp, average carbonation.

Good flavor but nothing separating it from your normal Red Ale, however, it was still an enjoyable beer.

In Nashville for new years. First time having a local craft brew from Nashville. Impressed by this one for sure. A nice malty taste with just enough hops to keep it balanced.

Brought home a 4 pack of 16 ounce cans directly from Nashville.
Reddish amber color, with a slightly off white head. Good retention, thin lace strings.
Smell of sweet caramel malt, some earthy/leafy hopiness.
Taste starts with the same caramel sweetness, some slight pine flavor but not overly hoppy. Malt base, but not overpowering sweetness.
Medium mouth feel, crisp, average carbonation.
Good flavor, enjoyable, drinkable. Pretty average Red Ale.
