Notes/Commercial Description:
Red Rocket Ale is a bastardized Scottish style red ale that traces it's origins to our homebrew roots. This full bodied and hoppy brew finishes on the palate with sweet, caramel malt flavors.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

LOOK: Dark Amber to Reddish Brown in Color, Thick Beige Head that Maintains and Leaves Abundant Lacing.

SMELL: Plentiful Sweet Carmel and Malty Aromas. Pine and Hoppy Scents are Plentiful

TASTE: Crisp and Full Bodied Red Ale with Mild Bitterness on the Sip which gradually Increases and then Finally Peaks Seconds After the Swallow. The Above Average Alcohol Content (6.8% ABV) is Evident in the Taste but NEVER Overwhelming.

FEEL: Perfect Carbonation Balance, Leaves the Pallet Dry for Several Moments After the Swallow.

OVERALL: What's NOT to LOVE? Great Look, Great Taste...I would HIGHLY Recommend this Delicious and Full-bodied Red Ale!
