2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a clear orange color with a small off-white head that settles into an island of film, ring around the glass, and some lace. Itís like the Oasis, but with a bigger malt character - caramel and sweet malts, leaves, grass, sugars, and a hint of metallic notes. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, earthy mouthfeel. Again, like the Oasis, bland and forgettable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pour. The beer is a hazed copper with a white head of foam. The aroma is faint and hard to detect. I get some doughy nuances and subtle grassy notes in the taste. Subtle sweetness. Medium body and medium to high carbonation.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very well-balanced red if you are not a fan of hops or malts. A dry Irish red that accompanies food very well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
