COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in memory of Deputy Chief James D'Heron of the New Brunswick Fire Dept. A portion of every sale will be donated to The Children's Burn Camp of the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation. An Irish-style red ale brewed with emphasis on balance. Malty-sweet accents from Vienna malt blend nicely with a variety of English hops leaving a clean, crisp finish. Rich caramel malt and a touch of roasted barley lends an appealing deep red hue.

Poured dark red with a sizable tan head. Smelled like caramel, grain and roasted barley. Toasty taste which was smooth but one dimensional. Ok.

sampler. Pours amber/red, small off white head. Didnít get much of an aroma with this beer. Taste is caramel with some light roasty grain, and it is balanced quite nicely with some bitter and floral hops.

Pours reddish amber with white head. Nice maltiness with notes of nuts and caramel balanced by earthy hops. Clean finish. Not bad, but not memorable either

Not spectacular, for an amber or whatever it is. Mildish, not great taste, but I like the cause. More local micros should imitate this.

willblake (2647) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 13, 2005
08.13.05 Deep copper-red, no head. Malty and rich. Nice bitterness stems from a dirty earth across the body but changes to a sharper and drier bitter at finish. Earth and nuttiness all around. Sweet grain pervades and lingers on the palate in a battle with the driness. Bonus points because itís one of the tastier examples Iíve had of the style, but minus points because itís not even as earthy or peaty as some of their other, less appropriate beers.

Dry hopped cask at the brewpub. Cloudy orange, nice tan head. Big fresh hop aroma, which seems to be English Noble in variety. Flavor is nutty malts with pplenty of fresh hops, both in flavor and bitterness. Nice nutty malt and hop flavor finish.
