bottle. Pours red with thick head that lasted entire glass. Aroma and taste toasted malts, on the sweeter side but well balanced. Nothing too complex but good enough.

ross (2104) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottles. Darker colored pour with an off white head. Smell is fruity and malty with a little bit of hops. Taste similar, easy to drink, not really a winter warmer, but it comes close. Not a bad beer that is usually easy to obtain in the winter months.

radio_nowhere (937) - Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle into pint glass. Light golden-amber color with some white lace. Aroma of toast, toffee, nuts with a light grassy hop note. Taste is heavy malt sweetness, caramel, bready, grainy, some roast with very minimal hop bitterness for balance. Moderate body, average carbonation, sweet, somewhat earthy with a dry finish. Iím convinced after a few ratings this isnít my style. Itís not from lack of trying though!

adnielsen (9533) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Pours a clear, dark rust orange appearance with a cream colored head. Quite nutty, very toasty malty, big toffee, caramel, biscuity aroma. Cracker, toasty malty, light roast, a touch fruity, nutty flavor with a somewhat bitter, floral hoppy finish. Not bad.

Old rate. Really a style that doesnít fit anywhere. This one is maltier but still confusing.

kramer (5172) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber to copper body with a small frothy off-white head that left a bit of light lacing. The nose is pretty standard for the style, dry toasty malt with a touch of light yeast and a minimal touch of hops. The flavor is toasted malt with a little too much residual sweetness for my tastes. It almost tastes as though itís a little under attenuated, but I feel like that this is what they were going for. Just a little caramel and fruitiness on the finish. Light bodied and a touch husky in texture with soft fizzy carbonation. I didnít really care for this one all that much, I donít think thereís a brewing flaw in here, itís just something that doesnít turn me on.

burg326 (3980) - Florida, USA - APR 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a light amber color with aromas of light caramel, light roast, some hay, and a touch of biscuit. Flavors are the same, light haying he aftertaste, nice beer overall.

Pretty good for what it is-- not my favorite style of beer, but nor is this a real traditional Irish red. Itís lighter, with a strawy, wheatey, sharp yeastiness. How bout that. Itís the balance the retains a pretty good rating-- you can tell this beer was made with some love and skill when flavors donít work for you, but something still makes it work. Here, itís the strange lack of carmel or roasty / toasty maltyness. Itís there in balance, but there are no major flavor notes in these areas. Itís all much lighter and brighter than that-- very mellow, but not rich. So, good, fairly drinkable, a good beer to give my dad. Heís great, but he wonít sprain a taste bud on a strong hop flavor.

12 oz bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours a light red/orange with a 1/2" white head. A bit of lace. Aroma is bread and fruit, think toast with butter and jam. Sweet flavor, all caramel malt. Small hint of fruity hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Mildly bitter aftertaste.

Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light grassy hop note with a bit biscuit and a good amount of sweet grains. Flavor is quite sweet with biscuit and sweet grains and not much of a hop profile.
