COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A somewhat classic Irish Red Ale. This ale is feisty and a bit hoppy. There is a malty sweetness and a somewhat dry finish. Traditional East Kent Goldings but with a nice touch of Cascade and dash of roasted barley give this ale a great taste.

Suttree (5148) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Red, as might be expected given the word "red" is right there in the name of the beer. Thin ring of foam. White bread and fruity notes in both the aroma and flavor. dryish finish, but most fairly malty. Quaffalbe.

Amber/red pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is caramel malt, bread, and earthy/citrus hops. Nice caramel malt and a nice earthy undertone with a decent citurs bitter finish. Medium bodied but foamy. Pretty ncie beer.

Aurelius (4197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from the ACC tourney roadtrip. Malty, somewhat vinous aroma as the bomber exploded. Light manogany, hazy brew with a light khaki head. Parched, twiggy, toasted hop aroma. Soid bitteringing, grainy, dry. Long wood-bitter aftertaste with a starchy body. Some off flavors at the end, sweetens out as it warms.

Ruby amber pour with sandy tan head. Nose shows peanut hulls and caramel/toasted sugar. Grainy with some cereal notes. Medium body with a light bitterness/ bite. Caramel grains are a little heavy here.

TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Can. Pours deep reddish brown with a thin off-white head. Nose is dusty, papery, and watery. Hops are nowhere to be found. Flavor is more paper, grainy sour malt, woody, little bit of bloody steak. Never had a good experience with this beer after trying in numerous formats.

burg326 (3704) - Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Poured an amber color from the can with aromas of malt, light roast, some caramel and a touch of toffee. Flavors were the same more caramel came out as the beer warmed still a better beer than a macro.

maxwelldeux (3681) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2012
This pours a red amber with a moderate white head. It has a slightly sweet smell to it, which was a bit unexpected. The taste on it is a bit hoppy. with a hint of roasted flavors.

DiarmaidBHK (3418) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Can at the bar of soap. Pours red with an inch of white foam. Lots of sweet malt on the nose. Maybe a hint of hop floralness on the finish but it goes down smooth with more than a few hop notes. Solid for style.
