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.

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.

Dark fruit and pine aroma. Dark amber colour with dense white head that lasts. Dark fruit and pine in a caramelly sweet malt base. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. This is a fine tasting and easy drinking beer. On tap at the brewery.

(Bottle) Deep brown body with an almond head. Roasted malt nose and flavour but clean finish. Lacks punch.

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.

Sept 01: Did I have a different brew than the rest of you? Yes, it’s drinkable and I’ll agree on the ’creamy mouthfeel’, but the smoothness isn’t accompanied by anything special in the flavor or palate. What IS special is the wonderful apple/spice/citrus nose and the beautiful color and head. Not bad, just not great overall. Aug 02: same overall impression, but I’ve gotten more picky! So new scores reflect that. Recommended with reservations.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2005
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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Poured a very deep ruby color with a hint of brown and a huge light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, molasses, and sour dough. Flavors of roasted malt, caramel, mild hop flavor with a small bitterness on the finish. Finish is also tangy. Light to medium body.

thornecb (4289) - 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.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2011
The aroma is sweet and slightly toasted with caramel malt, brown sugar, yeast, and grains. The appearance is brown amber with a smaller head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a well crafted beer without any real standout qualities.
