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.

Very earthy to sum it up. Dark ice tea colored pour with a thin off white head - fair amount of lacing. Hard to place aroma, pleasant - traces of coffee, caramel and an unidentified sweet fruit. Mouthfeel - stays on the tongue too long with the bitterness. Flavor has elements of chocolate, piney hoppiness and nuts. A nice diversion and a style I have not had that much experience with.

Poured a maroon color with a large off white head and some lacing. Caramel malt and some sweet fruit in the aroma. Nice creamy, roasted malt taste, some light fruits, and hops as well. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Not what I was expecting, this was nice.

Medium brown color. Small to medium head. Aroma is fruity, malty and rather sweet. A medium bodied Irish Red Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet and somewhat roasty. Hops are spicy and floral. Nice roasty malt flavors. Touch of orange and spice here as well, must be the yeasts. Well balanced. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Brownish red, with a small but compact head. Nice rich aroma. Gently sweet flavors of chocolate, caramel at first, and on to crisp, clean finish that carries some notes of, I don’t know, pine, maybe?

I dont think I have ever had a true Irish red ale before, but i really liked this. Very dark red color with very slight head. Nice carbonation- lots of malt and some hops. This is just a good drinking ale- very smooth.

Ruby chestnut color with an absolutely hugh head of beige bubbles. Lightly toasted rye bread with a thin layer of orange marmalade. Quite clean, dry and fresh. Acidic malt with dark chocoalte, cedar and toasted nuts. Quite irish. Dry malt linger with a touch of spice.

One of my favorite magic hats. Interesting mix of flavors with a nice, chocolate finish. It does have a very strange mouthfeel, but it’s one that grows on you. It is really like no other beer out there. However, every once and a while the I get a bottle with an unusual level of bitterness, which makes me lower the rating a little.

I suppose the 'red' colour they describe should be real, but my beer is definately dark brown in colour. No red, not even in highlights. A dense light brown head tops the beer as well. A very malty, chocolaty smell comes up as well. The first sip of the beer has some flavour, but after the first sip, there is no taste nor aftertaste to this beer. This is what the case was for all 3 of my previous Magic Hat beers, and I will suppose all their beers are like this. Too bad I have one more left. After that one, I will never buy Magic Hat again...seriously, save your money for something worthy for the money, such as Allagash, Victory or DogFishHead.
