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.

This is one tasteful Irish ale! Aroma of strong malt, a bit of hops and pennies (copper to those across the pond). Pour was a nice dark amber with an inviting 2 finger white head. Taste was sharply carbonated and malty. The hops arenít noticeable by themselves, but just balance out the malt to the point where itís not too much of either. This is a skillfully made brew. Nice!

(On tap at Top of the Falls in Niagara Falls, NY) Aviator Red is a solid, slightly sparkling red ale with a small, soft off-white head that is fully diminishing. The aroma is of fresh wooden hops, some resin, a bit of caramel malt and peppery alcohol. It is soft and smooth in the mouth; medium bodied and a bit flat. It is well bittered with a wooden resin flavor. The malt is tart and a bit sour. It is a slightest touch sweet when it first touches the tongue. Itís pretty well balances but perhaps a bit raw. It leaves the mouth with a chalky feeling. I thought perhaps this was a Scotch ale, but with more hop presence than I would expect from one of those. I guess this is what an Irish ale is like-- the first one Iíve reviewed, I believe. Not bad at all.

Bottle. Pours a murky brown with a small off white head. The smell is very fruity although I was unable to determine which fruits. The palate is soft and refreshing. The taste is similar to the aroma, fruity with a touch of spice, nutmeg.

(draft) carmel and mollases is the prominent aroma and flavor. generous malt makes for a smooth drink. a decent red but nothing that will blow your socks off.

12 oz. bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Cool bottle label. Pours a deep copper color with a one finger thick light tan head. Nice lacing. Has a nice toasted caramel malt aroma. Has a sweet caramel malt flavor. Medium body. No off flavors. Thought this was a pretty good Red. Thanks Jason.

On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Decent locally made brew. Tries to appeal to the masses rather than the knowing. Can have one here & there

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 bottle- want to support this beer, being from the area, but it really is not my style. Fairly caramel like malt flavor, not much hop presence or aroma. Not that memorable. draft rerate- 3-10-08- more enjoyable from the tap as the roasted/toasty flavors really come out. Not as bad as originally thought.
