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 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.

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.

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

Aurelius (4657) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Initial aroma put me off, but this smelled a lot better after the pour -- hops, coffee, pale malt, some muted toffee. Decent label, a lightened porter coloring, beady tan head. Nicely hoppy, some sweet creaminess, lots of peaty twang and roastiness. Some muted cereal flavors underneath. Long-lasting hop finish on a medium body. Tangy on the lips. I get the distinct feeling that this would be a lot better from the cask, as it reminds me of a good brewpub ale. Definitely better as it warms.

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.

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.

cheap (4571) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Brownish color pour with a head that fades rapidly. Plain ol beery aroma. Friendly initial low alky malty taste makes this presentable. Decent amount of co2 on the palate. Comes across a little creamy. Yes, friendly and rather easy. I was expecting something overly malty for some reason but this is not too bad! Picking up some carob in there I think. Good overall beer experience. Probably could drink a few of these at a stiing. More like a mild ale.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2003
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.

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.
