Medium-bodied red ale with distinct hop character and a touch of caramel sweetness. Served on nitrogen for a creamy mouthfeel.

Tap and cask, Newark. Pours a clear super bright copper body with a small frothy beige head. The nose is toasty and delicious with a light sweetness and a bit of butterscotch (which I find fine for this style). The flavor is much the same, dry and toasty up front with a little sweetness towards the finish. Very smooth and easy drinking, especially for an Irish Red. Just a hint of light bitterness on the back end. Very good example of the style.

Tap at the Maple Shade location, mine coming in at only 4.0%. Clearish orange-brown with a creamy beige head. Nose too faint. Taste dry, very dry, crisp and fizzing with a touch of bitterness and mild earthy caramel, hint of fruit buried underneath. Fullish body, quite pleasant.

Had this at the Maple Shade locale. Light orange with rimming off-white head; aroma if fresh malt grain; Flava is rich malty and feel light and crisp but not watery; finishes dry and dry yet fresh malty grain. Pleasantly surprised. Usually Not a fan of this style.

Nitro pour...Pours a clear amber with a creamy medium tan head. Very faint aroma...lightly malty. Flavor has some caramel malt...slightly chocolatey and sweet. Mouthfeel is light and a bit thin with a slightly sweet malty finish that for some reason makes me think of a cookie.

20110314 hand pump at W-ton. Hazed copper-teak color with creamy tan head. Aroma has an herby, mate-tea quality about it that is unique and unexpected but lovely, somewhat spicy, too, with mild yeasty clove notes. Soft and dry across the palate. Nice example of a style that is all do often a once a year punt by brewpubs looking to cash in on the season. Well done Iron Hill.

Goodgrief (1994) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Newark location. Not my favorite style, but I think the niltro helped immensely. Clear amber pour with frothy nitro head and great lacing. Smooth with a caramel and fruity sweetness. Tops in style for me. Excellent.
