Drought. Dark red-brown with beige creamy head, faint coffee and liquor aroma, slightly bitter but strangely flat taste, low carbonatio, medium finish with bitter aftertaste. Could be better.

On tap at the brewpub on 43rd Street. Pours dark amber with creamy, white, long lasting head. Aroma is of caramel malt and ripe fruit. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is herbal, earthy hops and caramel malt, hint of coffee. Finish is long and bitter. Average brew.

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 5, 2013
Hazy dark red/brown with a one-finger off white head and decent lace. Toasted malt aromas with hints of caramel and brown sugar. Flavors are similar, and include gentle bittering hops and some gentle herbal tea. Medium-bodied, creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

tgncc (2668) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 3, 2009
Nice attractive appearance, dark red, almost brown, creamy white head. The aroma is not so good, caramel, stale, mettalic. The flavor was malts, caramel, brown sugar, slight booze. The finish was a mix of piney hops and a sour malty flavor. Not horrendous, but not good.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2009
On tap at Union Square- appearance is clear and red- just like any other irish ale, aroma is of caramel but is subtle and flat. Flavor is sweet with a bit of bitterness toward the end of the taste. Palate is average. No real body to this one- not much different than Killians or any other of the genre.

ben4321 (3571) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Location: On tap at the 51st and 6th location of the brew pub

Aroma: Nose is sweet, toffee caramel
Appearance: Creamy red color, looks a lot like the rooster...
Flavor: Lots of sweetness, with almost no balance
Palate: Ok mouthfeel, medium body, sticky but creamy
Overall Impression: Not a lot of raters of this one...
It was a half-decent Irish red I guess, not much else to say about this one...

eaglefan538 (2830) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 6, 2008
On draft at the Radio City location. Color was amber-brown/copper, decent head when served, yet it subsided and became average. Aroma was coffee and west coast type hops (pine?). The caramel and toffee notes came out, but it finished dry and with a firm hop finish. snore. Caramel and some toffee, moderately dry, firm hop presence. Mouthfeel was average for the style. Snore.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2007
Tap at the Union Square location. Deep amber red colour. Thick white nitro head. Aroma is very sweet and candyish, sweet toffee, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavour matches with wave after wave of increasingly cloying sweetness. Caramel turns to butterscotch and I turn to order something else. A completely unnecessary brew.
