COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Marked by a distinctive malty flavor from the malt components in the blend, Cleary Red is a darker ale that even pale ale-beer drinkers will find extremely palatable.

Strykzone (4966) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. Quite hazy brown with a decent beige head. This is rich and malty and has something I canmot identify but makes this distinct and tadty. It is roasted and smoked but is not peat. Caramel is also tasted. Thos is superior to most and more interesting.

Bullit (4013) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 20, 2010
Draft @ Hereford & Hops brewpub. Clear amber colour, off-white thin head. Aroma of caramel malts, nutty. Flavour is caramel malts, nutty and slightly hoppy. Slightly bitter finish.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2010
A- Transparent medium red/brown body with thin white head. Head fades rather quickly and leaves behind little lacing in the glass. S- Light nose of caramel malt and hops. T- Caramel malt taste upfront. Finish is mostly caramel malt but has a slightly aggressive bitter character to it due to the hops. Caramel malt sweetness lingers. P- Medium carbonation and thin-somewhat watery body. I like my Irish reds with with a nice smooth creamy body and this one just doesn’t have it. O- Its very easy to drink and somewhat enjoyable. I will probably get again next time I am at H&H-but I wouldn’t get it anywhere else. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-06-2007 15:23:19

draft, chilled glass. body is slightly hazy auburn with slim head and excellent lacing. flavor is the same strawberry lifesavers note that apparently has infected the entire brewhouse. some fleeting caramel. light but pleasant caramel aroma. medium mouthfeel is worth a gold medal from this place.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 28, 2008
On tap at the Escanaba brewpub. Crystal clear deep red amber, with a rim of white above. No aroma. I can’t pull anything off. Flavor. This is boring. A meaty, chewy old malt flavor climbs out of this one. Too much crystal, too much meat. No real malt intricacy and no hops to balance this off. Some too-warm yeast esters kick off a bit of gross twinge to the finish of the beer. Not entirely clean.

LinusStick (2860) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2008
Crap was this bad. If this was in a bottle it would have been a drainpour. Nothing stood out with this beer. I literally put my beak into the liquid and inhaled and couldn’t pick up an aroma. The pour was a flat bubbleless orange with no head. Taste was weak and unexciting. I could taste a hint of biscuit and light malt with an earthiness to it, but it was so diluted I had to dig deep to pull that out of it. Terrible.

Naka (706) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Pours a deep red / amber with an off-white head. I got a decent amount of fruitness and caramel in the aroma. A lot of sweetness of caramel with just a touch of hops to balance it out. Finished really dry, as with most beers from this place.

12/27/07 - Winter Road Trip ’07 - Draft sample at brewpub. Clear red w/ off white head, nice lacing. Sweet malt nose, caramel and fresh baked bread. May be some fruity yeast esters. Pretty big malt character, caramel and bread, leading to a dry, hop finish, floral and a touch of bitter. This is a decent offering.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2007
On tap. Rich fruity malty aroma, with big buckwheat honey and biscuit nose. Deep coppery red clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medum body with medium carbonation, light carbonic fizz. Rather dry ale, with mild biscuit maltiness and stale nutty hop bitterness in the finish. Carbonic gaseousness and dry chalky after.
