Red, malty, dark caramel flavor without being obnoxious. Sweetness under control. I thought the aroma was similar. Slightly nutty, mild bitterness.

On tap at the brewpub. Pour was fine red-brown color with excellent clarity and a semi-durable beige head that leaves plenty of lacing.
Aroma: appealing mix of caramel and baked brown bread.
Flavor: good but simple flavor. Excellent bitter/sweet balance.
Feel: medium-light body wih crisp, near medium carbonation.
O: well-crafted if not particularly exceptional Irish Red.

Nothing extraordinary about this beer, but nothing to complain about either. A solid of an amber ale as you’re gonna find. Aroma is a bit sweet, lightly nutty but very, very light. Flavor finds some spicy notes, light bitterness and sweetness to meld with the touch of spice. It has a bit of a mineral-like mouthfeel. Solid amber. Great price.

Tapped at Karl Strauss at the Universal Studios in Los Angeles. This was a malty malty malty beer. Aroma of sweet malts, fruits and some strawberry marmalade. Amber color, head vanished in no time but kept a tiny cover. Taste was again sweet malt plus some bitter dark fruits. Overall a tasty beer but too much malt due to its style for me.

Pours a finger of head on a clear dark colored body.
The aroma is rich with caramel malt notes.
The taste is toffee sweetness with a touch of bitterness to balance it out.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s a nice and malty ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong fruity/caramel scent, and a taste that corresponded with it perfectly. Slightly syrupy and nearly free of hops. Flavor that lingered on the tongue. Very good example of a hopless red ale. Went great with pizza.
