chinchill (3223) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Pint served at the Trailhead pub in Black Mountain NC (from 2012 notes). A: deep red-brown. Clear, with fine carbonation visible. A lasting white head leaves fine lacing. M: wonderfully rich and creamy for style, with a medium+ body and excellent carbonation. Finishes dry. Has the special maltiness I find in my favorite brown ales, with a perfect amount of spicy hops serving as an accent. Rich medium malt finish. O: At least as good as any red ale I’ve ever had (not counting great imperial reds like Lagunitas Imperial Red Ale or Stone Levitation), with a mouthfeel better than any. Very satisfying, although it did not work as well with some spicy tacos as the tripel that preceded it.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Draught at Milltown. Pretty ho-hum red lager. I’m still not convinced this is not their "Red Ale" but I’ll take the new rating. Rather malty overall, light bitterness in the finish.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2012
On tap at The Federal, Durham. Was hoping that FH might have snuck out a hoppy red. No such luck, as this is a fairly standard "Irish" red style (here given a slightly tweaked moniker) that’s dialed up for the martyr’s holiday. Fulsome aroma, nice creamy body, and enough of a flavorful malt and hop balance to make it passable. But there’s only so much you can do within this style.

emacgee (4426) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Pours a clean copper amber with two fingers of sandy off white head. Nose is herbal and earthy with a really nice caramel and toasted grain character. Very nicely balanced beer, noticeable peanut hull character. Light cereal grain character in the flavor. Medium bodied with a slightly dry finish.
