COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most versatile beer. Good to drink as well as cook with. Light enough to quench a thirst and complex enough to accompany fine dining. Carmel malty sweet fades to a chocolate roasty finish and dry from a touch of rye. 1.057 OG 13 IBU 6%ABV

Bartzilla (559) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 11, 2006
An easy drinking red. Very flavorful and a treat to imbibe. I’ve had it draft and in bottles and they both tasted great with no discernable difference. One of my go-to ales.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - APR 25, 2006
On draught at brewery. Probably my favorite of the brewering offering I have tried, though pure hoppiness is a very close second. Copper colored with a light off white head. Flavor is very complex for an Irish Red. It has a nutty caramel flavor along with a very slight hint of chocolate backed by a dry maltiness. Hop are well represented though not over done.

thebeertourist (5046) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2006
Clear bronze-coloured beer with a modest off-white head. Good caramel aroma. Caramel and citrus flavours, ending appetizingly dry. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. A very harmonious and highly likeable beer, more in the alt style than Irish red in my opinion. Well-made it is.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Tap at brewery in Alpine, CA: Amber, light chewy caramel and a bit of light hops. The flavor is balanced. Nice but a bit light and thin for my taste.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Pours with a deep amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with some lacing. It’s sweet, malty and slightly fruity with a touch of caramel and an underlying hop note. Medium bodied and smooth.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Woo diacetyl. Medium body that tastes like butter and Cheerios with other grains thrown in the mix. Some interesting maple syrup notes appear and it ends on a definite fructose sweetness.
