3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice pour of dark amber with reddish tint. Nose is bready and reminiscent of a sugar cookie. Flavor is earhty, more like a hand ful of dirt, but thankfully that subsides to a sweet maltiness. The finish is mellow and clean. If not for the dirt flavor, this would be a pretty good beer.

Medium amber, hint of orange, good decent head fades completely. Bready aroma. Full bodied bready flavor, with a hint of almond nuttiness on the finish. Balancing bitterness, but not hop flavor. Not bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22ozer. This came out with a nice big head, rising and staying over a bright red beer. The aroma is sweet and candied, soda-like even. It drinks with a hint of smokiness almost, riding lightly on a sweet malt base. Maybe a bit light in body, if there’s anything to critique here. An odd blend of characteristics for an "Irish Red" but drinkable enough. (#3376, 4/3/2008)

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber. Clear red with a small off white head. Malty nose, toffee and caramel, a bit nutty. Flavors are similar. The finish kills it for me - a medicinal, slightly metallic tang. Ugh. Improved a bit after fully warming, but nothing to write home about.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from BevMo O’Side. Pours a cark orange color with a crisp head that fades quick and leaves minimal lace. Smells of sweet caramelly malts and grainy, nuttiness. Tastes sweet and malty and nutty. I am finding that alot of their malty beers taste nutty to me, like peanuts or PB. Anyway, very tasty and not as nutty as some of their other brews. Medium body, with active and crispo carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A light caramel aroma. Medium sized, tan head. Cloudy dark red color. Lots of malt and caramel, not much hops. Seemed to be a high level of carbonation than I expected. A good beer to be sure, but I’m a little surpised it won all the awards listed on the bottle.

This very red ale poured with a thin beige head. This is a very malty brew, mostly caramel and candy sugar, with a nice hop balance.
