An Irish-style red ale with the strength of an English strong ale. Full-bodied, malty and alcoholic. Not too hoppy in order to emphasize the complex malt flavor and fruity aroma. The ruby red color hints at its rich caramel maltiness.

On tap at BJís. Aroma is malted fruit Flavor is sweet caramelized hops. Quite better than anticipated. Balance with the malts like a better than average Irish Red should be. Surprised by this brew. Pretty good.

Draft at BJís Tysons Corner. Pours reddish brown with a thin, foamy tan head and creamy lacing. Smells like sweet caramel, chocolate malt, and floral hops. Tastes like sweet caramel, chocolate, malt, and syrup with a bitter finish. Light/medium body and low carbonation.

kramer (5328) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Pours a clear ruby amber body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is slight sweet for the style with some lighter husky and toasty malt. The flavor is pretty poor, thin weak caramel and minimal toastiness, itís not dry at all. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carb and a slightly sticky finish. Pretty poor example for the style.
