Color is a gorgeous ruby hues beer with a thin white head. Aroma of malts, toast, and caramel. Taste is malt forward with a sweet well balanced finish. Good brew from a great brewery.

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.

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.

More yellowish color than ruby. Mildly sour fruity aroma but a nice toasty malt flavor. I rather like this ale, though Irish ales aren't often my favorites.

This beer is a rich amber highlighted red ale that pours with a half-inch off white head. The head slowly fades to a thin film indicative of a malty beer. A very nice lace pattern is left on the glass. The aroma is very malty, with a touch of hops. The combination of the sweetness and the hops almost has a cinnamon charcter to it. Very intruiging. The flavor shows some nice hop bitterness up front, with a very solid malt background. Hints of peat smokiness show through in the mid, with a decent bitterness on the finish. A nice balamce of malt and hops make this very enjoyable. The mouthfeel is a bit sharp, but yet refreshing.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2004
This beer is a deep rich brown/tan in the glass. Not as red as I was expecting it to be. The head was frothy at it’s peek...But faded quickly. The aroma was some what sweet, Ithis was a hint of fruit. It starts out with a sharp hoppy burst then mellows out into a sweet malty full taste. The is little to no aftereffect, or taste lingering around from this beer. Very good for thsee semi-warm nights.

Pours a hazy glowing amber with a nice creamy off white head that leaves sheets of lace in my glass. Sweet fruity aromas, nutty, buttery, toasty and sweet fruity flavors. Medium bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel, finishes on the sweet side. Another good one from this brewery.

Must try more Irish ales! That is my new New Years resolusion. What a tasty and beautiful beer! The pour was a bubbly red with a off-white 2 finger head that laced the whole way down. The taste was a perfect mix of malt and hops. Nice and complex beer. Bring on the Irish!
