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.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2011
Red, with a dense beige head. Grainy, caramel aroma. Lightly hoppy flavor, with a nice mix of bitter and sweet. All inall, pretty simple, but well made and tasty. On tap, Asheville Pizza and brewing.

On tap at Piedmont in Durham, NC. Dull reddish copper pour with one finger of creamy sandstone tan head. Nose is rich and malty with a mild leafy hop character and notes of caramel and toasted grain. Full bodied with a medium carbonation and mild bitterness. Toasted grain and some malt sweetness.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Had a half pint at the brewery when I was picking up my grolwers of sexual chocolate last weekend. This a well-hopped irish/red ale. Simple to drink, smooth, and downright tasty. I could drink a few of these, easy. Thanks Jamie for hooking it up with the growlers and giving me a (beer) reason to stay in NC!

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Reddish orange clear pour with minimal ring of whitish head. Nose of caramel malts and a little nutty. Flavor has a good bit of nuttiness, but again it comes across as vegetal, more caramel, some citrus. Clean and easy drinking. Not a bad beer at all, but nothing overly special.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 20, 2008
On tap at tyler’s in durham. Poured a red hued brown with an off white head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate, although there may have been some sweet, citrus. Flavor was similar. A really solid caramel backbone; some chocolate. A nice amount of bitterness for the style. Citrus and orange in the finish. A very solid beer.

NachlamSie (2724) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2008
On tap at Barley’s: Pours a solid red hue with a fair tannish head. The aroma is quite toasty with lots of nuts, toffee, and even some light grapefruit. This brew has a fairly light mouthfeel with an easy to drink flavor profile. Hints at toast, toffee, chocolate, subtle citrus are all here but in a lighter, thirst-quenching package which makes this surprisingly drinkable. I certainly don’t get excited about Irish-styled red ales, but I could drink a lot of these.
