Dorwart (2535) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Nice thick creamy head which crater nicely and lasts a long time. Very attractive in the glass. Mainly malt aroma that is slightly dry and bitter also. Color is a very nice dark red/amber with little carbonation. Flavor is well balanced. Sweet malts up front and a nice bitterness in the end from the hops. Dry in the mouth. A decent Irish ale.

UNCCTF (518) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2003
A very malty aroma and flavor, with a nice bittering feel in the very back. It almost tastes pilsner-ish. Confusing, but easy to drink.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Bottle: this brew truly earns it's title of "Red Beer". As red a beer as I've seen - whatever that is worth. The aroma includes malt, some hop and dust. Flavor is kind of odd. A little malt, a touch of hops. Like wildchefbill said - smooth and easy to drink, but no at all impressive.

haddon90 (1617) - Newport Beach, California, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Pours a dark amber/ruby color with a little white head. Harldy anything from the aroma. Maybe some malt, I don't know. Not much of a flavor. Kind of thin and watered down. Not the best beer I've had.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Pours dark amber/copper with a white, thin head. Strong lacing. A weak malty aroma with a flavor to match. Sweet but a little watery. No bitterness and little hop flavor. Not creamy as I expected. A little skunked. I can taste the Dutch in it. The can stated "Product of Hollland". Smooth and easy to drink, but not at all impressive.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Light red tan, thin white head. Smells sweet. Skunked? Plain beer slightly bitter. Not really that good or memorable.

igneous1 (1532) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 25, 2003
color is brownish/amber with a moderate off-white head. first thing that immediately jumped out at me was apples in the aroma. flavor definitely has a roasty quality. pretty thin

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2003
Bottle, poured amber-orange with a sudsy medium head. Malty toffee aroma, I cant find anything else there. Quite thin and watery feel about it. Innoffensive flavour. Start and finish are sweet and malty. Well balanced, with a slightly smokey aftertaste. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Reddish orange. Large, thick, rocky, long lasting head. Smells of malt, cereal, and grain. Smoky and hoppy, with a dash of black pepper in the flavor. Maybe a little watery, but was overall better than I was anticipating.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Can. Clear brassy orange color with medium carbonation and a foamy head. Aroma of mildly toasted caramel malt, weak hops, and aluminum. Malty flavor with moderate sweetness and low bitterness. Tastes far from home and states the word "average" in a detached, monotone voice (with an Irish accent of course).
