chinchill (1877) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle with best by date of 30 Nov. 2011 (from 9/2011 notes). A- Pours a lovely red brown with about 1 finger of short-lived off-white head. Leaves some nice lacing that quickly slides down the sides of my wet glass. S- Aroma has a roasted malt scent that is would be pleasant, but there are too many alcohol esters (I know: with only 4.8% ABV!) given the weak strength of the other components. The taste is much better. As expected, it primarily features a medium roasted malt flavor, but there are some spicy hops in the mix. The dynamics are unusual, however, with the hops becoming a little less pronounced in the finish which is where the toasted malt flavor comes through most clearly. In any case, a fine finish nicely shaped by both the Apollo hops and the malts. M - medium bodied beer, although off on the thin side a bit, with good carbonation; a mild bite of carbonation/hops on the tongue. Rather dry finish. O - This is a fine red ale: Even though it is weak in aroma, it has excellent flavor, is moderately refreshing, and is a pleasure to drink.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottled. Poured deeper garnet with a tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up nutty and chocolate notes with deeper dark fruit (prune-like).. very assertive with the sweetness.. weird. The flavor found cocoa, molasses, and maple at the core with light earthy notes laced throughout.. tacky malts on the finish. Lighter-bodied and watery at times on the palate.. on the sweet side.. OK overall feel and flow.

Fatehunter (1216) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Deep red color, though almost transparent. A half finger of off-white head that fell down quickly. A wet malty smell, almost musty. Not really impressed with the taste. Kind of "meh". A watery taste followed by a blunted sweetness. Light bodied, almost no carbonation and smooth. Not bad tasting, just nothing really going on. Meh.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAR 7, 2012
Toasty malts are the main player here. Brick red with a nice off-white head. Good light sweet malts, a bit of fruit, too. It drank well but was one of those beers that I forgot about during a conversation. It just didnít hold my attention after the first few swigs. Solid.

Leighton (10987) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle at Sanderís place, NYC. Pours clear russet with a soft, creamy, off-white head. Pretty classic Irish Ale aroma: caramel, toasty malts, leaves. Light sweet flavor, wet leaves, dull caramel, toast, mild bitterness. Light bodied with fine, tingly carbonation. Faintly dry and sweet to finish, leafy bitterness, slight semi-dark fruits, toasty malts. Very basic beer but not offensive in any way, really.

cheap (4055) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Brownish color pour with a head that fades rapidly. Plain ol beery aroma. Friendly initial low alky malty taste makes this presentable. Decent amount of co2 on the palate. Comes across a little creamy. Yes, friendly and rather easy. I was expecting something overly malty for some reason but this is not too bad! Picking up some carob in there I think. Good overall beer experience. Probably could drink a few of these at a stiing. More like a mild ale.

jb (2196) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2011
One of the tastier Irish Aleís Iíve tried. Red, nice looking, very malty and rich, with malt notes such as toffee, sugar, sweet but not too sweet. Very well done session ale.

tgncc (2818) - Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Tap at international Beer Fest 2011. Iím usually more impressed with Magic Hatís bravery in brewing new and unusual styles each year, more so than I am with their execution. Not the case here. The aroma is earthy, caramel. The appearance is a deep red, cream-colored head. The flavor is earth, caramel, pine. The fiish is light pine, lingering sweetness. Medium to medium/thick in body. Quite good. Standout for this style.
