Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our Red Rocket Ale, aged for six months in bourbon barrels that we have used for three previous beers. Brettanomyces, or “Brett,” a type of wild yeast that often makes a home inside used barrels, adds barnyard notes to the malty character of Red Rocket.

Poured from the Cask at Bear Republic to a cloudy reddish-orange withmedium thick white head and okay lacing. Nose was a pleasant blend of hoopy citrus and a hint of bourbon, with alcohol slowly creeping in as the beer warmed. Mouthfeel was tingly and the taste followed the lead of the nose, wioth again, the alcohol becoming more dominating at mid-beer. Finish was crisp, slightly bitter and enjoyable.

A good beer.
