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

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.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2006
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.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 12, 2006
22 Oz Bottle: Decent but unremarkable red beer. Nice red color. Pretty malty flavor, without much hops. I’d drink it again, but Im not about to go out of my way to find it.

Bartzilla (565) - 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.

Bottle. Ruby colored with a light cocoa head. Light caramel aroma. Caramel malt flavor with citrus backing. Nicely balanced with a bit of chocolate. Lingering slightly sweet malts, Medium bodied.

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.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2006
Poured a mostly clear copper color with medium build off white head. Nose of Caramel and some citrus. The same goes for the flavor. Very nice smooth mouth feel.
