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 got a lot of flowery and soapy flavors, probably from the hops. I was hopping to get more caramelly flavors and some roastiness. Its spiced up and has tu much hops for the style. Its a bit watery too.

McNeillR (1122) - SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bright ruby, light ringed head. Keen caramel and a soft brown sugar edge. Initial taste is softly sweet initially, light tea bitterness. Nice spicy rind towards the middle. Fairly dry on the finish. Soft, sticky mouthfeel. Decent enough.

Bottle at Craig’s. It pours clear red-amber with a small off-white head. The nose is sweetish, brown bread, candy, boiled sweetness, pear, caramel and caramel. The taste is bitter-fruity, red fruity, toasty, caramel, mild citrus, alcohol warmth and jammy aspect with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Oily feel. Not a whole lot of depth, but decent enough.

Sammy (8405) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
At their pub. Decent hoppiness, well malted. Not a bad one for an Irish red. Drinkable.

mcberko (6029) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at Alpine, pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of stone fruits, earth and dry caramel malts. Flavour brings out red fruits, earthy notes, and some dry floral hops. Nice and dry, with a fruity, earthy body. Solid stuff.

fluffy (1500) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Easy to drink, albeit forgettable Irish red. A weird sort of flat astringency at first too. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (7659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Bottle at BBS San Diego tasting. Nutty red brown with a tan head. Aroma is fruity. Flavour is a little wood, orange and berry with a dry malted ale finish
