COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Bold Smooth Irish Red Ale. This Irish style ale is brewed with a rich blend of malts to give it a deep red full body and generous amounts of Willamette and Fuggle hops for a wonderful aroma and taste.

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.

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.

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.

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 (1860) - 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.

We enjoy Irish Reds because they are smooth and easy-to-drink. This particular beer fit the bill. Rob says, "I could drink that again and again."

Ratman197 (9057) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small l;ingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, fruittiness and a hint of earthiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel and light fruittiness with a crisp lingering carmel finish.

ben4321 (3569) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 4/30/12

Aroma: The nose is pretty sweet, nutty malts, toast, toffee, and caramel
Appearance: It pours a caramel color with a thick, lasting, small bubbled, beige head
Flavor: This one is fairly heavy sweet and malty, basically the nose plus some light fruity flavors
Palate: This beer drinks pretty smoothly, with a fairly soft carbonation, and a light-medium body
Overall Impression: This is a drinkable, but underwhelming offering. It is malt heavy, a little too sweet, and lacking in balance. At its best, this is one is no better then just alright.
