Tap. Toffee malt aroma. Red-brown color with minimal head. Slightly sweet toffee malt flavor with a light hops finish. Very nice.

Braudog (5739) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Caramely, lightly nutty. I'd call this a hearty cold-weather beer with almost fruity overtones. It was OK.

Aroma – A good amount of malts in the nose profile a tad inkling of hops also.
Appearance – Amber red with a nice head clear as a bell.
Flavor – A good amber flavor this was a decent beer for the day. Had some spices, fruit lingering flavors. Good use of hops.
Palate – Nice Mouthfeel with a good dry finish.
Overall – A very nice amber ale had some great flavors the spices and add ins where great. I liked this beer.

GregClow (2891) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2003 Sampled at Honolulu location. Nice amber-red colour, and great caramel and hop in the aroma, but the flavour doesn't hold up and the body is weak.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2000
From the Phila Brew Moon (King of Prussia Mall). Currently titled Orion’s Irish Amber. Decent roasty burnt malt flavors. A little bitter. Sweet aroma and a light body.

Draft at the brewpub. The manager noticed padrefan and I actually smelling and swirling and talking about our beers, so he came over and let us try a few extras. He gave us this beer in the Dry hopped/Nitro version as well as the regular. I liked the dry hopped version better. More of everything really. Nice hoppy aromas and a very decent toasted malt on the flavor. Pretty good

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Pours copper with a thin offwhite head. Light malt aroma with some fruitiness. Flavor is a nice balance of earthy hops and malt. Finishes dry. Pretty good.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 23, 2008
On tap, Brewpub. Pours a light ruby-red with a smallish head. Sweet aroma of malt and some candied fruit (cherry?). Palate is smooth, medium-bodied, and crisp carbonation. Flavor is primarily sweet throughout with a touch of roasts, but a bit too heavy on butterscotch-sweet for me at times. Finishes refreshing, perhaps because of some hops for balance and crispness.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2009
On tap at the brew pub. Poured a deep red with a small off white head. Aroma of malt and slight hop note. Flavor was malty with slight fruit tastes and a decent hop finish.
