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.

I have this beer a number of times in the past, but it was always served too cold to really get the full aroma and flavor. Too bad this one is now retired I would say it was one of the top in the Magic Hat Variety Packs. Pours a darker reddish brown with an average tan lightly lacing head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts and nuts. Flavor of roasty malts, nuts, a little butter and I was even getting some coffee in both the flavor in the aroma. Light but it was there.

Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells of roasted malt, nutty and sweet chocolate. Tastes oakey with some decent coffee flavors and mellow nuts.

Dark brown color with a thin head. Good aroma of cocoa and coffee. The taste stays the same and gains some sweet malt. I thought this was a stout; it seems completely at odds with the Irish Ale style. Well balanced and rounded.

The initial and lasting impressions were the same: tobacco. I donít smoke, donít chew, donít snort, and yet this beer tasted like licking the inside of a pipe bowl. Also present were smoke, some apple fruitiness, and toffee. But overall--tobacco. It got old after a while...

although still not up to snuff this is one of the better magic hat beers ive had. poured clear brown with a musroom tan head. nose of oat and sweetness. roasted malt warmth on the tongue with nuts and breadyness. still a bit thin but at least it somewhat represents a red.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Bottle. Mahogany, off-white head. Brandy aroma, thick, malty. Mild flavor for what it is. Cherries, a little alcohol; cough syrup. Should be more challenging.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2005
Dark reddish brown ale with a smooth creamy pale moka head, verry nice. Sweet vanilla and Coffee crisp in aroma, with pellets of malt. In mouth, a nice roasted chestnut comes out with very discreet hops. Verry woody and nutty in character, a good Irish Red! Medium bodied. Too bad its retired!

This beer pours a deep magenta red color with a very thick viscous pearlish head and a nice degree of lacing. The aroma was of cherries, some citrus, vanilla, sweet malt, some chocolate and some acetics. The flavor is medium bodied and incredibly carbonated as Iíve come to expect from Magic Hat. An acetic bitter chocolate and watermelon like flavor with a heavy emphasis on cloves, hay and grass. Considerable bitterness and fruity sweet and hoppy bitter contrasts..but not in a good way. And what was with that maple syrup and honey-like finish. This had some of the weirdest flavors ever...but once again, not in a very good way. Herbal flavored...like drinking cherry tea, but bitter. Patience is obviously not a virtue.

This one from notes....Poured out a nice reddish hue with a beautiful sized and textured head. It was very drinkable with nice notes of toffee and malt with some sugary notes in there too. Shame its retired, probably my favorite magic hat so far.

Sammy (11176) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2005
Poured huge initial head..dark redish wood. Fragrant spicey aroma. Chocalate and other malts, not too sweet, appropriately carbonated. Bit of roasted grounds, chewy, easy drink..like a draft. Bittersweet finish and aftertaste. L
