Hanuta06 (367) - Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Serving: from tap at Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub and Restaurant. Aroma: light malt. Appearance: very small, creamy, light-brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-red body. Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium body with dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall: pretty good.

Draft pour. Dark pour for a lighter beer. Very malty yet rich flavor. Very odd aroma which I am having trouble describing. Overall a very drinkable beer but not too memorable.

Dogbrick (8907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a mostly clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

luttonm (2774) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Draft. Heavy rich malt body, dark red caramel brown. Alcohol and sour-alt malting, a bit of a mess. Reminiscent of the ’big red’ beer brewed in Serbia, not a great comparison, funky malts, residual sugars and alc bite.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Draft at Magic City Brewfest. Pours a clear amber with a medium-sized off white head. Aroma and flavor were odd. A bit sour with some other off flavors. I’m hoping this was a bad keg. But it didn’t seem so bad as to be a mis-brew. In any case, definitely didn’t strike me as a red ale.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Pours cloudy amber with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of grass and spice. Medium light body, light carbonation. Caramel nut taste with a crisp finish. Surprisingly malty.

dwyerpg (4703) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Somewhat soapy aroma. This is quite smooth. Not too malty or funky. A nice flavorful irish red.

CapFlu (4660) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
(Draft) Sampled at GCBF 2009 in Victoria on September 9, 2009. Cloudy brown. Sour malt. Lactic. Poor. 4/2/4/2/8

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
Red-amber and opaque with a minimal white head. Aroma is mild, red fruits, nutty and caramel malt. Taste is scotchy caramel cake, spicy hops and a sweet finish with mild vanilla undertones. Mouthfeel is smooth and pleasing. This ale is nice but could have more in the aroma and flavor.

Crit (3450) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2009
Reddish brown, small beige head.Carmel nose. Easy drinking carmel malt profile. Good example of the style
