alexsdad06 (9008) - Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Draft sample at the Reno airport from notes. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, light muddled fruit character, some mild earth, really not much going on.

22oz bottle picked up at a 7-11 in Sparks
Pours dark amber with a medium sized off-white head, some lacing. Aroma of toffee and nutty. Flavor is toasted malt, nutty, dried fruit and caramel
Not terrible but footbalmed the rest of the bottle.

Fatehunter (2250) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a thin head, quickly gone, on a dark brown body. The aroma is roasted malt and some caramel. The taste is caramel and roasted malt sweet, almost porter-like in flavor. The texture is thicker. It doesn’t taste like a red ale, but it doesn’t taste bad.

"says lager on the website, but ale on our menu, so i’m going w/irish red ale. doesn’t stray too far from the norm on the style, for better or worse. classic nutty crisp malt backbone with just enough hops to balance. OK."

Bulk_Carrier (3746) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - APR 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a dark red body, no head, no lacing. The smell had light caramel malts, nothing else. The taste was sweet, light caramel aftertastec dry finish. On the palate, it sat somewhat light, and semi-sessionable. Carbonation adequate for the style and for me. Overall, this is just a decent Irish Red, nothing to write home about.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This pours with a very big head that is beige. It falls slowly. The beer is hazy amber and it seems to take forever before I can get a sniff. It smells kind of swampy and earthy. That is tasted with some biscuit and a hint of spice. It does have an Irish effect with those earthy malts. A little spice gives this beer some life and mild bitterness but I cannot tell what flavor they bring. Noble? There are nuts that are tasted and that took a while to figure out. Hazelnuts, maybe? Not a great beer.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pour is a amber with an off white head. Malty nose and light citrus. Medium body. Flavor is lightly roasted malts. Some citrus. Light bitter finish. Not complex but good drinking.

Tap at Sacramento Beerfest 2013. Pours dark amber with little head. Slight malty aroma. Flavor is light malt with minimal citrus (?) hop. Finishes not exactly dry.

This beer is very swill able but is not lacking in taste in the least. The roasted barley really comes through in the aroma and finish of this delectable brew!
