Out of 25 beers on tap at Irie’s, glad I choose DB Irish Red, and in a 34 oz frosted mug. Maybe a degree below Newcastle, but equal to Samuel Adam’s Irish Red. Great flavor. Near perfect balance.

Bottle: Pours a reddish orange with a thin beige head. Nose is slightly sweet and almost fruity, maybe berries?, and kind of earthy. First sip suggests moon shine was mixed in… what? An odd taste that I associate with jet fuel. Some caramel and more berries, doughy. Maybe the yeast was off… I just don’t like this at all.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle from Guess Who? Bentonville. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. Very sweet cocoa and caramel malt. Cow’s Tails. Basically a big old wallop of caramel. The taste is turning almost soured red apple. Caramel. Pretty biscuity. Slight bitterness. Medium body, strong carb. Poor stuff.

Headbanger (3303) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
12oz bottle 6/23/14 (Judicious Spirits)-46° in Mug-Pours a ruby red with a small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and sweetness. Taste of the same with a bit of hops and more sweetness. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but not good.

jandd1983 (2563) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2013
It poured a clear amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of sweet maltiness. The taste was a hint of caramel in the aftertaste. Decent.

GJF (1248) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 19, 2013
I found this one kind of horrid. Pours a pretty amber with a fizzy white head, a decent aroma of malt and caramel. But the flavor is far too sweet, too syrupy, to unbalanced. I didn’t finish it.

Had at the Foam beer festival in Fayetteville Spring 2013. Reddish brown pour. Fairly light bodied. Some caramel and malt flavor. Slightly fruity.

MattShizzle (541) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle - from Ale in the Mail. Deep dark copper color. Somewhat roasty aroma. Good. Both roasty and malty with the hops in the finish.

crazyvin (1939) - New York, USA - JUL 31, 2013
A copper body with red highlights. A minimal tan head that had very little retention. Aroma had a caramel malt presence, a butterscotch note and some citrus hops. Flavor seemed to have a balance of caramel malts and a diacetyl quality. there was some bitter hops. Finish was smooth and light bodied.
