This pours a thick deep amber color. The nose screams of sweet toasted malt and toffee. The flavor is very sweet which didnít seem to go well with the toasted malt flavor. Itís almost like they were trying to hard to make something out of an Irish Ale. It didnít work for me.

Poured hazy amber orange with a thin dense off white head...smell is fruity and sweet roasty nuts...taste is disappointing...sour grain and cloying sweetness...

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 Uh, my first rating of this beer sounded like an endorsement for the brewery, sorry. Pours a reddish copper with a dense head, nice lacing. Smells sweet and malty. The flavor is a bland malty flavor with some hops to boot but well balanced. Nothing special.

This bottled brew from Masterbruewer poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored long lasting bubbles. The body was softly carbonated transparent and red brown colored. The aroma was very mild and almost non-existent with only a slight red malt scent to it. The mouth feel was mildly bitter with a medium malt hop bite. The flavor was a somewhat weak red beer flavor with mild malt and hops.

2005 bottle from SkepticMAP, a very gracious trader! Deep orange-red. Small bubbles rise in vertical shafts from the sides of the glass, quite aggressively. Clear. Off-white head is quickly receding to ring. Smells of light raspberries, dry toast/toasted malt, hints of alcohol. Tastes of sweet and buttery malt, lots of waxy crayons. Itís either wax or baked dough Iím tasting. Medium body, much too dry and bready on the end and I just canít shake the notion that Iím tasting ground up crayons. Low carbonation.

A ho-hum beer from a good brewery. Clear pale amber with a big off-white head. Seeded rye, toffee, malt, candy apple aromas. A creamy feel in the mouth. Flavor was moderately sweet, caraway, bready.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy, lighter copper color with a small but lasting off white head. The nose smells of off. Cooked cabbage and carrots dominate. The flavor has some creamed corn, boiled veg, slight bread, and graham cracker notes. Not much from the hop side. Medium bodied with a fast and clean finish. This one was a little rough around the edges.

Bottle from Cavie. Red orange pour with a white head and some floaters. Aroma is a little fruity, but not much else. Taste is caramel, fruity, sweet, and twangy.
