12 oz bottle into to pint glass. Awesome red/amber color with a 1.5 finger head that disappeared after a few sips. Lacing is not very evident. A very drinkable beer, fruity, hoppy taste comes out with a lively amount of carbonation aiding to a nice mouthfeel.

Bottle: Rusty, sunburst orange with a decent clarity about it; quickly growing, eggshell colored cap that sits nice & fluffy, leaving generous lacing behind,.Malty sweet aroma with rich caramel, butter toffee, some vaguely fruity hops, wet grass, a hint of stale toast. Taste is even maltier with sweet, rich toffee, buttered toasted & bread, caramel, & a moderate metallic flavor running through it all. Touch of burnt grain & graham cracker. A little bit of floral leaves & grassy hops help to balance a bit, injecting a faintly citric note that is best described as orange. Nutty, woodsy, lightly metallic, toasted malt finish. A little sticky sweet & cloying with warmth.

Very nice irish/red ale. Amber pour with off white head. Some lacing. Light nose. Solid malt profile with some depth and character. A bit of hoppiness balanced with a nice nutty finish. Quite drinkable.

The body has light amber honey color with very good clarity. On top it forms a big creamy off white colored head. The head slowly fades but hangs on well and make cool rings of lace on the glass. The aroma is mostly sweet with hints of lightly roasted grains, bready yeast, light hops and some mild fruit notes. Its flavor has a good solid medium body with a sweet malty character that is tempered with just enough leafy hops for some balance. There are notes of bread, light caramel malt, orange marmalade and mild hops. The palate is smooth, slightly slick and easy drinking with mellow carbonation.

MarkoR (484) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle bought on a recent trip to PA. Pours a copper amber colour with small white head. Aroma is roasted malt, floral. Taste is pretty much the same. Very decent Irish Ale.

Bottle. Pours red in color with thin white head that lingers. Caramel malt aroma with mild carbonation. Balanced hop flavor with a bit of sweetness. Nice caramel flavor with some complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BAMF (78) - Albion, Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Aroma is buttered bread and toast with no hop aroma. Appearance is reddish amber color with thin off-white head. Flavorist light caramel upfront followed by a stronger buttered toast flavor. Finish is grain malt toast. Mouth feel is medium to light body as style. Moderate to heavy carbonation. Overall impression is malt forward with an overall buttered toast aroma and flavor. My feel is accurate to style.

chucklemation (407) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2014
Pours a copper brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is sweet fruit, almost yeasty, and caramel. Flavor is less impressive. Sweet fruits stand out the most, along with some wheat and malts. Body feel is light. This is an okay beer. Not the most flavorful, but still hits the spot.

sawbuck (286) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2014
Mild aroma of malt..hints of bread and hay. Crystal clear orange red in color...white head leaves quickly. Rich malty sweetness is in the beginning. Stalls there, then a mild bitterness moves in. Pretty uneventfull. Not a bad session beer.
