A- dark red/brown body with light tan head. great head retention. S- malty, carmel, nuts, maybe hints of chocolate. T- nuts, carmel, and malt up front. Bitter hop aftertaste. Hints of chocolate may be in the background. P- medium weight body and very fizzy. O- this was interesting and worth a try. Quite complex taste to it. The carbonation gets in the way of the character though. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-06-2007 19:07:59 --

Clear amber, thin off-white head, and somewhat lacey. Diacatyl bombarded nose, diacatyl bombarded flavors...the nose...butterscotch and toff. The flavors, toffee and grassy hops...quite hoppy actually...but diacatyl is everwhere. I wouldn’t rate it but it seemed the brewery reps were there and serving it at the flour city brewer fest in rochester, so be it. A lesson in diacatyl awareness...should be served to anyone studying becoming a beer judge.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 [1873-20081205] Cask. Beery aroma has lots of yeast grains and multigrain characteristics. Slightly hazy, dark red brown body with quick off-white bubbles. Heavy yeast multigrain malt flavour. Boozy medium-full body. Booziness is fine but the rest is heavy. (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

[3525B-20101228] Tap. Some grainy malt in the aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown body with long-lasting creamy off-white head. Grainy flavour has a little toasted buttery malt and a nice sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Perfect for sipping while watching Canada beat the Czech Republic 7-1 at the World Juniors!! (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

Appearance: Pours a garnet-hued body with a bubbly, off-white head. Smell: A simple, straight-forward aroma of dark caramel and toasted grains. Taste: Dark caramel maltiness with a slight sweetness. Lightly astringent toasted graininess. Earthy hop character and medium bitterness. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Eh, it’s just an average red at best.

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 don’t like Irish reds. It reminds of of Sam Adams Irish red, didn’t really care for that one either. very dark red, off white color head. Malty, just can’t put my finger on what i don’t like about it, but it wasn’t 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.
