Finally Buffalo has a beer it can call its own again...one of my favorite beers, drinks easy, great aftertaste, a malty alternative to the hoppy beer varities. Red is best on tap in Buffalo at the Lafayette Tap Room or Century Grill.

You know, it is what it was supposed to be, but I guess I just donít like Irish reds. It reminds of of Sam Adams Irish red, didnít really care for that one either. very dark red, off white color head. Malty, just canít put my finger on what i donít like about it, but it wasnít my favorite.

A good local brew, usually drink it draft. Has a decent head that dicipates quickly. Nice full flavor that is long lasting. Good to drink during the summer.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle. Appearance: Ruby cola brown, off white head. Aroma: Nutty malts, a bit of hops. Palate: Medium. Flavor: Nuuty roasted malt, chestnut, even a hint of chocolate and caramel. A bit of fruit somes in as it warms as well at some citrusy tasting hops. Overall: This gets bumped up a few points for being a Buffalo NY classic. I hope I can still drink this when Iím 80.

deep ruby color with a white head, slightly hoppy boquet with some malt present. Malth flavor well balanced by hop bitterness, medium to light mouth feel. Pretty good beer.

12 oz bottle, 01/06? Any pour not down the side shoots up a big head that settles like a float atop hazed amber. Lacy streamers. Nose is molasses, brown sugar and nuts. Taste starts with sweet, smoky prunes and a carb tang. Sour blackberry finish. A bit watery but adds to drinkability. Quite nice at almost two (?) years.
