Inspired by an Irish classic. Garnet-red in color with a rounded malty flavor and a lingering hop aftertaste.

MartinT (7956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2008 My Bottom Line:
Tepid toasted malt and its subtly baccate caramel brethren lead to a leafy supporting hop bitterness. This is another well-malted Jasper Murdock ale, yet is does not shine in the brewery’s lineup.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam lingers atop the copper-tinged burgundy.
-An earthen dryness seems to be concealing a mineral character.
-Carbonation is active and a little frothy at first.
-This remains a relatively well-done version of a boring style, but it is not interesting enough for me to have more than a pint.

From the bottle and on tap at the brewpub .

Sampled at vt brewfest 07. Pours a copper color with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, malts, and woody hops. flavor is well balanced with caramel, and toasted malts with a clean and bitter finish. Very nice.

CapFlu (4549) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2006
(Draught) Tiny, bubbles dance amongst a mahogany body. Thin, dissipated head. Nose and flavour of strong English malts, mildly roasty with an oregan hops bitterness. Nice balance and complexity.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a dark ruby red in color with almost no head and little other carbonation. Aroma was mild of malt and distinct of noble hops. Flavor was a little off balance to the hop bitter side, but who’s complaining. The finish was long and quite bitter. Very nice...
