Bear Republic Red Rocket Scottish Red Ale (6.8% ABV / 67 IBUs): Winner of seven CA State Fair Gold and Silver Medals, two Great American Beer Festival (GABF) Silver Medals (1998, 1999), and a Silver Medal at the 1998 World Beer Cup, Red Rocket has astounding credentials for a beer that Bear Republic describes as “a bastardized Scottish style red ale that traces its origins to our homebrew roots”.  In this case “bastardized” means a healthy dose of hops that creates a distinctly American Red Ale.  Red Rocket pours a clear, deep copper-red color with persistent white foam that leaves a nice lace.  The beer has a strong sweet caramel malt aroma with hints of floral hops.  Red Rocket is medium to full-bodied with creamy texture and moderate carbonation.  One sip and your mouth is engulfed with sweet caramel malt, bread, and dark fruits.  The beer finishes dry with toasted malt, earthy undertones, and a devilishly delightful bitterness.  This world-class Rocket will launch you to the heavens with beer drinking delight!
