3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
