A dark red colored ale with virtually no head. A smooth beer with a stronger than expected hoppiness. Finish is a bit thin, but a very good beer.

Slightly tart, nicely hopped Stout. Slightly more complex than the Ol’ Ron’s Oatmeal Stout. A very solid beer.

Wasn’t expecting much from this one, but I got more than I had bargained for. This beer pours a pale reddish color with almost no head. Looks very watery. Taste is very hoppy with a good malty backing. A little thin and watery, but the hops are done very nicely, better than any other irish ale I have had.

On tap at alehouse #1 - Pours bright amber with a creamy offwhite head. Aroma consists of pleasant floral aroma over grains and caramel malts. Flavor is surprisingly quite hoppy. Lots of floral notes, some orange as well, and a touch of grapefruit. Backed pretty well with caramel malts and some grains as well. Palate is medium bodied and rather creamy. Very drinkable and a nice compliment to the food. I was pleasantly surprised on this one.

On tap at the Alehouse. I was beginning to think they poured me the wrong beer until I read some of the other reviews. Aroma is very strong with hops. Citrusy and grassy with some caramel malt in there too. Certainly looks like an Irish red, as it’s a clear reddish copper with a medium tan head. Flavor is earthy hops and bready malt with a lasting bitter finish.

Well with St. Patrick's day nearly upon us, it was time to sample the new batch of Irish Rouge before the bar hoppers on that day drain the cask dry. This beer was an medium reddish amber color and formed an off white bubbly head that left circular lace as it subsided. A subtle aroma of malt and citrus with a slight grain element to it. The flavor was of malt and lightly of cirtrus. The finish had a slight bitterness to it, but nothing overpowering.
