Thought this was pretty good! Had a peppery flavor that was surprising. Long lasting... I was pleasantly surprised as I usually am not a fan of this style.

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."

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
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.

Huge thanks to Butters for giving this to me so I can complete the United States. Hooray! 12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, plums and floral hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, stone fruits and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk. Looks great, murky dark reddish amber, creamy head. Spiced, red fruity nose. Some caramel malt on the palate, lots of musty fruit and a slightly floral finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel, feels like a cask ale. Not bad.
