Tap @ Buffalo St. Louis. Pours a hazy golden appearance with a small off white head. A touch fruity, sweet malty, light caramel aroma. A bit watery, orange fruity, sweet toasted malty flavor.

Had the brew pub, poured a orange with a red tint with little to no head. When present it appears with a slight off white color. Flavor is smooth no over powering flavors finish is smooth with just the right amount of hops.

Sample from beerfest. Poured an amber color. Smaller off white head. Aroma was caramel, nuttiness, and some hops. Very, very, very thin body. Watery. Flavor was malts, caramel and butter. Not a lot to this beer. I thought this beer was below average.

It poured a red color with a tan head. The aroma was of malt and hops. The taste was malt with some pine hops. A decent Irish Ale.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Tasted at the 1st annual Urban Chestnut - Wolpertinger festival in St. Louis, MO, USA from tap into sampler beer boot. Poured a clear, light amber color, not nearly red enough to include in the naming structure. No trace of red-inducing roasted barley in the aroma or flavor, either. Strange. A decent, true-to-style amber ale, but not very memorable. 6,4,6,3,13 UPDATE 2/2/2013: Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured a deep reddish-amber colour with white foam and lace. True-to-style Irish Red Ale aromas and flavours: malty, nutty, with soft tangy hops balance and faint ale yeast esters. Light-medium body, average carbonation, well-balanced mouthfeel and aftertaste. A little watery, but overall a nice table-strength beer. I have a feeling they’ve improved the recipe since last year.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a surprisingly golden color, maybe with a little bit of a reddish tint, with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of toasty and sweet malts, light grassy hops, and faint citrus peel. Flavor has more sweet malts than the nose, along with toast, grassy hops, and a bit of earth. Light-bodied, with light carbonation and a smooth, matly mouthfeel. Easy to drink, and seems more sessionable than 5.6%.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that disappears to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Toasted malt and mild hops in the nose. Light body with flavors of caramel, grainy malt and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short malt aftertaste. Just average overall.

Part of the sampler tray. Nothing special to note about their beer. Would likely not return nor would seek out Buffalo brand.

Picked up a growler from the brewpub for a Super Bowl party. Pour is clear reddish brown with a nice light brown uneven head. Malt and rye were consistent throughout. Some hop notes moved in and out. The rye and hop combination gave a nice zingy effect. This was pleasant and flavorful.
