hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Draft... Pours mostly clear and amber with a small, fizzy, white head. Excellent, creamy retention. The aroma is far too restrained. I can’t pick up a dang thing here – even when it finally hit room temperature. Light to medium-bodied and mildly creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor is excellently balanced and the beer is cleanly brewed and refreshing, but there’s just not much else to it. Not malty and not hoppy, this brew simply fills my glass and offers nothing other than a trivial ration of refreshment. In other words, this beer is not flawed, but then seltzer water is also flawless. Just sayin’...

markwise (5145) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2013
On draft at Due South. Pours a hazy amber-copper color with a white head. Nose is some toasted malts, some nice citrus notes. Flavor is malty with bits of citrus hops and some lingering bitterness. Nice balance between malt and hops and enough to make it unique from other Irish Reds.

glennmastrange (2621) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Tap. Moderate roasted grain for the malt, light to moderate herbs for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with smoke and wood in the background. Head is small, frothy to creamy, slightly off-white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy copper. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a carbonation between soft and lively. The smokey malts add a nice touch to this evenly balanced Irish Ale.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2013
On draft at Sybarite Pig. Took a sample from my friends glass. Not super malty like most irish reds I’ve had in the past. A good balance between the malt and the hops. Somewhat dry but still a good beer.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Draft at Sybarite Pig. Tulip. Heavy white head and thick lacing. little aroma with malt and bread. Taste is quick bitterness of light hops with a bread, yeast flavor. Some malt comes through. Dry finish. Doesn’t seem like much of an Irish Red but decent nonetheless.
