12oz bottle. Deep reddish-mahogany. Aroma of mercurocome, very medicinal. Old hospital. Sweet sugary malt. kinda syrupy. lots of caramel, some toffee. Very sweet. I prefer a red more dry.

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.

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.
