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.

The malt flavor of this beer is awesome, lip smacking good and tasty. But it gets overwhelmed by the bitter. What would have been an extremely high beer fell down under 4 because the bitter was to much, took away from the tasty. If you are a hop head, this one should be right in your wheel house.

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!
