Our Irish Red pours a deep mahogany and supports a robust off-white foam. Featuring rich, complex caramel aromas with a touch of dark sugar, there is just enough hop character to balance this easy drinker.

A red that doesn’t have any character but doesn’t really try to do too much so the simplicity is not a downfall decent beer

Clear brown with dark red hues, giant beige head that lingers for a while. Nose is whole wheat bread, some dark dried fruit, yeast. Medium to light body, initial caramel sweetness covers the tongue then onto a slightly dry finish with more dried fruit on the finish. Decent beer, but lacks complexity.

HonkeyBra (3585) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2013
On tap at the HopCat. Rated from notes. Pours a rich reddish pour with a medium light tan head. Aroma of cereal malts, red cake, some brown sugar and molasses, with some earthy hop notes. Flavor is fairly sweet with moderate bitter hop tendencies. Medium to fullbodied with a creamy texture, somewhat coating mouthfeel. It finishes somewhat bitter with a lingering sweetness. Nice, unassuming, but ultimately not special. Just solid.

Silphium (3186) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Draft at the brewpub, Big Rapids. Translucent deep red-brown body, thin cream head. Light cerealy body, nutty and toasty with modest sweetness and bitterness. OK.

Onslow (1225) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dark red brew with small head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and some sort of burnt aroma - like wet burnt toast. Taste follows the aroma with a sweet caramel flavor but a sour burnt bread taste in the back of the throat. Earthy in a bad way. Ye gods... I used to have family in Big Rapids and drove by the brew pub a few times but never stopped to sample the goods. I hate to dis a Michigan brewery but the sample I have here leaves a lot to be desired.

Tmoney99 (11365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminished and produced fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft sweet beer.
