COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is an excelent beer on tap. It has a high 7.3 abv, and you can tell. Try getting a "growler" to go, and you wonít regret it

4-5 oz pour on draft at BJís (Gainesville, VA location) with a Mustang Sally yelling DCLawyer. Clear golden amber with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, malt. Tastes of citrus, floral notes, malt, stone fruit. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

HourGlass13 (494) - North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2016
Pours a clear reddish amber color, with a thin white head. The aroma is slight sweet, caramel, vanilla, and toasty malt. The flavor is caramel and minimal toasted malt. You can feel the alcohol burn. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a slightly sticky finish.

freekyp (1830) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2016
A middling clean malty red. Pours pretty gingerhead with a slight ring of white head. Very clean with forward caramel malts. Hides its ample alcohol well, with the fuel hitting the engine long after the swallow, evidenced by a welling warmness after a few swigs. Well done.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Sampled on draft at the Frederick MD location this beer poured a red-caramel color with a medium sized creamy yellow-white head that left excellent lacing. The aroma was faintly malty with a bit of caramel. The flavor was toasty malts, a hint of tobacco, caramel and a bit of vague fruit. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

A very well-balanced red if you are not a fan of hops or malts. A dry Irish red that accompanies food very well.

BrewDragon (8) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2016 does not count
A nice "red" to chill out on. Iíve had both, tap and bottled and theyíre pretty much the same with a lovely, rust color and a refreshing flavor.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2015
Big full bodied malty red ale with rich hints of caramel and toast. But the booze really comes through on the finish and they just need to dial it back a bit and let the malts shine through.

ajnepple (4657) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2015
On tap at the Fort Collins location. Dark orange to amber and clear in appearance with a diminishing white head. Mild aroma of fruity esters, toasted grain, caramel malt, and light toffee. Similar flavor, moderately sweet and lightly bitter with a medium plus body. OK.

Hiero (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Had this with a brewhouse burger at BJís. The first few sips were creamy caramel and smooth. The alcohol starting coming out about halfway down. Pleasant level of carbonation. I really enjoyed this with my meal after a week of hard work, but there was nothing extraordinary.

radio_nowhere (1323) - Maryland, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Draft at the Frederick, MD restaurant, clear deep reddish-copper color with off-white head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness and mixed fruitiness. Taste adds toffee, berries, dried fruits and faint spices. Medium body, moderate-low carbonation, soft with sweet fruity caramel finish. Itís malty and fruity, not sure about complex.
