Happy Hour: Red Tail Ale

On my routine shopping trip last weekend, I found myself talking to the beer and wine guys at the local Trader Joe's. Not only did they tip me off to the fact that the store retails individual beer bottles — something I can't believe I'd never known! — but they also raved about one brew in particular: Red Tail Ale.

Red Tail definitely lives up to its superior reviews. The amber ale, which is made by Mendocino Brewing Company just over 100 miles north of San Francisco, has a saturated caramel color, moderate head of foam, and a slightly metallic finish. With bittersweet notes of dark chocolate, this brew's a fitting selection for Fall. Have you ever sampled it?

I haven't tried that one but I've tried almost all the trader joes brands. Best of all the Dunkelweizen! It's definitely a plus for me because I never want a whole 6 pack i just want to try two or three!

Ooooh, Red Tail is delicious. And I agree Senorita, Eye of the Hawk is awesome too! Red Tail used to be kinda hard to find, so exciting that TJ's has it now.
