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

22 oz. bottle from ABC - Pours a clear deep red color with a nice size off white head. Nice red edges show in the light. Light lacing is left as the head settles to a film. Has a light grassy hop aroma. Light caramel malt flavor. Light to medium body. Has a very light dry, toasty finish. Nothing fancy, worth a try.

From 22oz Bottle. Pours a clean cherrywood color with a nice one-finger layer of well sustaining light beige head. Aroma of biscuits, rye seed bread, and a gentle brush of grassy euro-hops. Some very light chocolate cherry fudge seems to linger in there as well. Medium-light, gently carbonated mouthfeel. A wave of mildly sweet caramelly malts wash across my tongue. A bit of leather and toasted oak acorns remind me of the fall. Clean. Some of the sweetness fades away at the finish to reveal some subtle dry, grassy hop flavors. Well balanced, well crafted beer overall - great example of the style!

bomber courtesy of Saarlander, thanks Aaron. pours a decent looking reddish amber with an off-white head and splotchy lace. has a good caramel malt aroma and flavor but falls off after that. decent but unspectacular.

I like the caramel malt profile - appropriate for the style, the beer is ok and well made but overall unremarkable.

Malty nose and basic flavor profile. Poured impressive red with a moderate head. Decent beer, but nothing stood out.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 29, 2006
On draft at O’Briens. Arrived a nice clear, dark red mahogany color with little to no head. Aroma of rich caramel malts, sweet tea, light floral hops and summer fruit. Flavor of caramel malts, molasses, bitter herbs, a bit of spice and pepper in the finish. Medium body, crisp carbonation. Nice drinking, flavorful ale.

Sampled at the brewery. Thin and watery with generic malty presence and almost unnoticable hops. Drinkable, but I’ve had much better.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Rather bland and boring example of an Irish red ale. Drinkable but nothing noteworthy. Rather thin-bodied and watery as well. Some sweet malt bottom but lacking any bittering highlights.
