COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Irish rising, sweet loam of the moor, Slowly, so slowly we watch the art of the pour. Born of the gas whose molecules dance. Born of the flow of a dense liquid trance Feeding the head, feeding the heart Humble Patience is the place we start How long is the ride? How traveled the road? What do we bring to lighten the load? Humble Patience is the thing The ripe revelation that waiting will bring, Humble Patience... How long does it take for soon to be now? OUR IRISH-STYLE ALE POURS SLOWLY, ITS DARK GARNET-RED COLOR CASCADING INTO A RICH, THICK, CREAMY HEAD THAT WILL MAKE YOU WEEP WITH JOY.

Bottle from variety pack. P is ruby brown w an offwhite head that dissipated to the edge. Nose is full malts and dark ffruit balance to be deep and satisfying. Taste is similar though light and drinkable. Decent brew for the style

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2011
12 oz bottle, pours a dark copper/brown color. Minimal head. Aroma is very prominent and appetizing, especially for an Irish ale. Very roasty and nutty with some toffee noted. Not as skunky/yeasty as other Irish ales can be. Taste was bitter and sweet, fairly well balanced. Mildy full body, moderately bitter aftertaste. Overall great representation of the genre.

garrison (784) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Purchased from the Glenway Avenue Westwood "Krogers" - Alright, this twelve ouncer poured a mahogany hued brew into my lager cup, with a thick (but rapidly fading) off white head. Tastewise, Id call this beer smokey and grain heavy, rather kind of a psuedo-peat flavoring. Still okay, though.

thornecb (4507) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Pours clear mahogany into a Sam glass. Off-white micro head slowly pancakes as it recedes leaving trailing sheets. Toffee, molasses and roasted nut aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning dry in the abrupt toasted grain finish.

radioseer (299) - Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2011
(12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Has a red brown color. Medium malty sweetness and little bitterness. Notes of caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Creamy texture and soft carbontation.

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2011
12 ounce bottle from the fall mix pack. Pours a clear dark red with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of earthy notes, nuts, chocolate and tinny hops. The taste is earthy notes, caramel and a leafy hop finish. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

DrSilverworm (6817) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2011
12oz bottle, thanks to Robotopera for sharing from his mix-pack. Clear brown-red color, foamy one-finger head. Little lace. Rich aroma, creamier texture, carbonation a bit strong. Moderate spice. Sort of sweet. Decent, moderate-length aftertaste. Not terribly drinkable or sessionable, though. One of the better and more interesting Irish Reds Ive had, but still not all that great or interesting. I think Im just not really a fan of the style.

pete4999 (1100) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle, as pictured, part of the mix pack. Pours a clear reddish-orange, minimal head. Smells of straw/hay, and has a bit of toffee sweetness that I like. Simple, unassuming, but easy to drink and tasty.

LinusStick (2879) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2011
A nice Irish ale. Very mild and drinkable. Aroma was roasted malt and caramel. Pour was a murky dark red/dirty brown with a half finger off white ring for a head. Taste was all malt. Roasted malt with a distinct earthiness. Slight iced tea flavors come out in the aftertaste. Good carbonation and very refreshing. Great sessionable beer

dfinney23 (1772) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Not at all what I was expecting, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Pours dark reddish brown. Aroma is roasted malt and caramel. Feels thinner than it looks or tastes.
