Radek Kliber (6324) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 30, 2003
Thick creamy head. Superb processed malt, reminds me of Dunkels I had in Spiz. Clean, with good character, once again lovely roast.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2003
Roasty malt aroma, dark red, with a small toffee head. Smokey, roasted malt taste, fine mouthfeeel. All in all a tasty version.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Deep amber/red color, thin off white head. Some roasted malt. A bit of bitter and sweet interplay. Dry finish, medium bodied. Nothing wrong with it.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Brownish amber in colour with a thin off-white head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, a bit of caramel and some faint spiceyness. Medium-bodied; Roasty malt taste with some subtle spices and sugars. Aftertaste bittered from the roasted malt, but not overpowered. Overall, I thought this was more of a Scottish Ale, and actually liked it a decent amount. Nothing wrong with the pint I had! I got this on draught at the Pizza Plant in Buffalo, New York.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2003
On tap in Buffalo - Red hue with a small white head, good lacing. Light to medium-bodied. Toasted grain, floral, berry, plum, and apple detected on the nose. Moderate sweetness and bitterness, hoppy and fruity tasting. Dry and lively mouthfeel. Lightly astringent finish. A very average ale.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2003
Cask conditoned, I have never tried anyother versions of this, and I am guessing the cask conditoned version is better. Apperance is almost tan/brown, not really red at all. As others have said nothing really jumps out about this beer, but overall it is not a bad offering

Good looking beer.Drinkable enough, but nothing to distinguish it

lovibond (115) - New York, USA - NOV 19, 2002
Great mouthfeel and color. Flavor would be better if it didn’t have so much chocolate. Wish they’d use something else for color. Still, well above average.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2002
Am I the only one who felt this tasted a bit like a pale ale? Billed itself as a "red" ale. Not quite.

Malty and roasty, but somewhat one-dimensional. The guy at the tasting described it as an Irish Red Ale, but it’s not red.
