Survey Says : This brew was light bodied and very refreshing. It was slightly sweet and very drinkable with no bitter notes. This beer is a good simple lager with nothing to get too excited about.

Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale

28 Sep

Red Rocket  Ale

Brewer: Bear  Republic Brewing Co., Inc.

Location:  Healdsburg, California

Interesting Fact: Bear  Republic Brewing is a small family run micro brewery and restaurant located in Healdsburg.

Alcohol Percentage:   6.8%

Survey says: This non-filtered ale has a deep amber color. It has a hoppy aroma. It is only lightly carbonated with just a little foam on pouring. It has a very strong distinctive flavor with an aggressive hop character. It is full bodied. This beer was somewhat of an enigma to the panel. While no one felt it was objectionable, none really cared for it either. One panelist said they would prefer wine over this beer. This ale was just simply too strongly flavored for this panel’s likes.
