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.

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 (3529) - Lewisburg, 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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Serving: Can at Ri Ra Charlotte. It pours a deep red color with a small head. Malt forward nose with some caramel, dried fruit, and malt sweetness. The nose has a bit of bread and caramel with a slightly bitter finish. Maybe a touch of resin in there as it warms. Fairly light in body. Nice session brew.

Has a definite grainy taste to it with a heavy malt flavor, slightly nutty and little hops, fine for a casual session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

from growler, good aroma, bitter sweet, citrus, biscuit, wet card board. Brownish orange color, got a good head with a vigorous pour, bitter sweet aroma, more citrus, grapefruit, less biscuit. medium body, creamy mouth feel, bitter finish, Good beer, aroma had nice mix as it seemed to jump around from sniff to sniff as what I smelled. Hoppier than other Irish reds I’ve had, but that’s OK
