Matly aroma. Dark brown color. Decent lacing. The finish is so clean you can't tell if you just drank some. In the end, it's a good but not very satisfying beer.

Glass. This is one of Magic Hat's better offerings, truly a great Irish Red style beer. Appearance is deep red, almost opaque. Mild hoppish aroma is indicative of the quality of flavors to come. Mouthfeel is milky at first, with a clean water finish. Consistent with Magic Hat offerings, this has their signature, though more subdued, fruit flavor. Also present are other non overbearing maltish flavors, all with a very slight roasty touch: caramel, coffee, tobacco, with a slight rasberry type flavor. Overall, this is a tasty beer that I've returned to, and will again!!

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2003 I"ve always liked Irish reds, and this one is no exception. A nice, well-balanced beer, with plenty of body, but not too heavy or bitter, more malty than hoppy. Bob"s 1st is Bob"s best, I happen to think.

Out of the bottle it’s merely very tasty. On tap with the creamy finish it’s absolutely heavenly. I suppose more cascade hops couldn’t hurt but find a bar that serves it on tap and you’ll have a tough time leaving. By far the best of the magic hats.

The first time I had Humble Patience was on tap, and I absolutely loved it. Great creamy texture, great musky flavor. It has a nice hop quality to it, but isn’t very bitter. In the bottle is a disappointment. If you look at the bottled version in and of itself, it isn’t a bad beer. However, it pales in comparison to the tap version.
