Draught at the Empire State location.
Cloudy darki red-ish. Earthy nose, little roasty. Cocoa powder notes. Earthy roast malt in flavour along with toffee and caramel. American hops makes the difference, from what would have been a boring beer. Nice hop bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served in 5oz. sampler glass. Very grainy and slightly smoky aroma similar to an irish ale. Definite munich malt in the nose. Brilliant red color and sheet lacing on the glass. Flavors of toffee, smoke, and grains. Overall a good irish red ale, recommended.

(On tap) Pronounced darkish brown colour, nice slightly burned malt character and a good hoppiness (which turns out to be a house characteristica). Very typical fruity/flowery notes. More akin to a Brown Ale I’d say. 5,5% ABV

Dark reddish apperance to it. Had a nice sweet aroma with pretty decent flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Times Square location: This one pours a clear copper color. There wasn’t too much head to it at all. There was a slight roasty aroma to it. The taste was somewhat roasty with some malt sweetness, but there was some mild hops balancing the sweetness. Definitely nothing spectacular, but it is just a decent amber ale.

Average Amber ale. Good red color with modest head. Hoppy yet balanced nicely with crystal malts. Reminded me a bit like boont amber but this one had less body. Pretty good overall though.

Ruby red color with a thin white head. Sweet flavors and aromas with a very bitter aftertaste. I would have liked to see some more lasting flavors considering its finish is kind of strong and harsh. Pretty good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
this was decent, and better than i expected. amber with golden highlights in the glass with medium white head. a bit on the spiced side, with almost a carmel undertone... really hit the spot after a long day at work.

Decent red ale, just not my favorite style. good malt and roasted qualities, a bit spicy, some lacing.
