Red Tail Ale (American Red)

Red Tale Ale is an ubiquitous find at most Northern California grocers and beer closets. A moderately priced ($8 for a six pack) highly drinkable red, Mendocino Brewing does this one right.

It’s got the clear red amber taste to it with more than a slight hint of hops and malt and citrus and a fair amount of carbonation.  Though the lacing on the glass dissipates quickly, the aroma sticks around.  Certainly not an exciting beer if you’re used to drinking more exotic or smaller craft ales, but a very sessionable red that’s perfect with chips and salsa, grilled fish, or red pastas.
