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.

Pours very very dark red. Creamy thick head. Not much nose, faint earthy/malty. Surprising bitter chocolate with a very nice hop balance. Very clean finish.

nicely surprised by this one -- great roast aroma but not too much -- a little cloudy, but the flavor was smack on -- i would gladly stock up on this one

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Pours red brown with a nice head. Smells of hops, and wheat. Very earthy smell to it. Hints of fruit and spices as well. Tastes very good, nice and smooth. This could be a new regular for me.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Deep red in the glass. Almost a chery wood color. Dark. Head is white but reddish, almost pink. Solid head with nice lace. Looks just great. Smell is hoppy, then quite fuity like spiced apples. Taste is an initial hoppy bite. Malty and fruity too but the hops and bitterness seem to overpower the rest of the flavors. Medium bodied with a pleasant bitter aftertaste. Quite drinkable, an everyday fall/winter brew. Iím beginning to like Magic Hat more and more...

XO (52) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Bottle. This one pours a dark red with a tan head that stays around. This is a great looking beer! Smoky, hints of coffee - maybe some chocloate. I think this may be Magic Hatís best,

Bottle. Ruby colored and full bodied. Good sized head. Complex, malty, brown sugar or roasted flavors. Good drinking.
