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.

Pours a deep clear red. Flavor is malty and a little bit more bitter than a traditional red. a big red that I could drink all day.

Besides the their devil’s trample ground, this is one beer I love to grab for parties. Most people would be hard pressed to not to be able to enjoy this fine ale. I love the balance and malty flavor it brings. Very drinkable.

I am delighted to make this beer’s acquaintance. From can, it is mostly clear with a reddish amber colour and a cream coloured head. There is a good bead of carbonation. The aroma is a good balance of tropical fruits and juicy peach from the malt and more stonefruit and resin from the hops. The flavour is sweetish malt at first and then a riot of orchard fruit and spruce resin. It doesn’t feel bitter at first and then it becomes puckeringly bitter. I could happily demolish pints of this beer, however in the interim one can will have to suffice. Dammit.

22 oz. from vacation to Atlantic Beach, NC 2013. Malty fruity scent of moderate strength, deep burgundy with a frothy light tan head - gorgeous, medium dry feel. Grainy fronted taste, toasty malt flavor with a fruity hop on the end. Not too shabby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bubbleflubber (1826) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours a deep amber into the glass, with a 3-finger head that leaves thick, chunky lacing. The nose is of deep caramel and chocolates. Flavors of caramel, toffee, dark chocolate, light biscuit, cocoa nibs and effervescent esters. The finish is a biscuit flour dry hopping and cocoa, lingering appropriately. The mouthfeel is substantive with a semi-active palate and medium body. Actually, I do enjoy this Irish Red very much, as it provides a comforting sweetness all around, and causes me to reminisce in its effervescence. Nice offering.
