Caramel, citrus fruit, red berries, and toast on the nose. Reddish amber with a fading, off-white head. Dry and fruity, completed by an up-front snap of citrusy hops. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, and a fully flavorful finish loaded with caramel, berries, and citrusy hops.

Originally reviewed: 3/17/10. Had this on tap at the brewpub. Came out a clear dark amber/red with a thin white head on top. Little lace stuck to the glass. Scents of breads, some mild toffee, and sharp hops. The body is crisp and refreshing. Plenty of carbonation. This is a high-hopped Irish Red. Reminds me of a tamed-down Amber Ale. Some mild breadiness in the middle, but the sweeter side that I expect from the style, is absent. It’s bitter, bold, and good. Not a bad take on the style. Recommend.

Copper colored pour, small white head. Aroma of malts, some caramel, and some grain. Flavor is mostly bitter with malts, with tinge of sweetness. Finish was rather bland and unimpressive however.

Clean brownish orange color, Good head that faded to a ring, minor lace. medium sweetness, lightly bitter. light body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation, sweet finish. Ok, classic Irish ale. Good session/lunch beer. doesn’t make me want another one though.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
On tap as the Irish red seasonal. For an Irish red- this was actually pretty good, but still a boring style. Medium amber red with a nice head. Aroma is nutty with good full caramel malts, slight butter, low hops and good ester fruitiness. Flavor is toffee, caramel, herbal hops, light spice, and a good fruitiness. Fairly clean and very easy to drink.
