2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one smells toffee, sweet. Color is ruby red, clear. Taste is sweet, toasted malts, little hops. Tastes like a george killian. Little head disappears to nothing. Low carbonation. Brew was found leftover from St. Partrickís day celebration 16 months later. Good for a macrobrew, but nothing special...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle into Sam Adams Sensory glass.
Pours a dark amber color with a small head, that thins out quickly. A little lacing observed.
Smell is of roasted and carmel malts. Taste is quite similiar, but now the malts almost seem burnt.
Mouthfeel isnít too impressive. Not to smooth of a beer and leaves a dry feeling in your mouth.
Overall, it is a decent beer, nothing I would go and buy again. But the sampler was a decent buy so Iíd recommend the sample pack.

Drinkable. Thatís about it. Iíd seriously rather have a Bud Light because at least Bud Light is not trying to be something itís not -- a good beer. Bud Light knows its not amazing, but Michelob canít seem to shake the fact that they make awful beer.

Earthy, toasted biscut aroma. Roasted malts, grains, and caramel flavors. Not much depth but it is quite easy to drink. Itís ok.... didnít disgust me, thats a bonus.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an enticing, clear russet with a small, white head. Nose is mostly caramel malts with some hints of fruit. Flavor is dominated by a sweet character throughout, with many notes of caramel, as well as some fruit, spice, and plenty of bread and biscuit. Light to medium in body, a little syrupy, a little sticky. Not too shabby overall, but I wouldnít want to drink very many of these beers.

Green olive nose. Light brown, clear, medium head. Malt forward, cherry and vanilla notes at midpalate. Cardboardy. Alcohol too insistent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, ruby-hued body with a full finger of off-white foam. Irregardless of how it may taste, it does at least look appealing.
Smell: Faintly sweet-scented aroma with modest notes of toasted bread, toasted nuts, and caramel. Noted fruitiness akin to picked berries.
Taste: Maltiness tasting of dry caramel with sturdy tastes of both toast and nuts. Moderate sweetness. Ripe, berry-toned fruitiness. Faintly herbal, earthy hop character, though thereís enough bitterness to counteract the sweetness. Touch of tannic graininess midway through. The body thins slightly as you hit the reasonably crisp, toasty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess to the mouthfeel.
Drinkability: Okay, so while it doesnít exactly exhibit the relatively richer character of, say, the Samuel Adams Irish Red, itís still not altogether bad. Delightfully bearable!
