(March 1st- April 30th) Deep ruby red in color, this well balanced ale has roasted malt tones and a crisp hop character. It is in the Irish tradition and comes just in time for springtime thunderstorms.

annunz123 (942) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Nice, strong aroma with bread, wood, nuts, and maybe a little pipe tobacco. After that, the flavor is disappointing, water and with some vegetal funk. OK, but not worth seeking out.

12 oz bottle. Pours copper with small, short-lived, fluffy white head. Aroma is of bread crust, herbal hops and some caramel. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal, earthy hop, bready malt and caramel combine on the palate. Finish is long, bitter, and astringent. I would not buy this brew again.

Sample prior to the brewery tour on 7/3/13. Clear copper pour with a medium beige head. Bready malt nose with caramel and light hops. Toasty malt flavor with caramel accents before a dry, roasty finish. Very well done Irish Red.

Scrapersnbeer (1531) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Strong nutty, malty, husky, ’casky’ aroma. Teak oil clear appearance, as red as any beer that I didn’t suspect of adding food coloring. Taste is pronounced bitter at front, chalky bittersweet out the back. Nice crisp bite that doesn’t overwhelm the other elements. One of the better Irish ales I’ve tried.

12 oz. bottle. I seem to miss this beer each year, so I was very happy when I went to pick up my daughter at school and found this on the shelves. Pours a deep clear translucent red with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. The aroma is malty with some heavy char, which I found a bit odd, along with some mild nuts. The flavor is malt along with a bit of char, and cigarette tobacco, which I do not like. Some mild nuts as well. Mild-moderate char bitterness at the finish. Thankfully I bought just a single, because I will not be drinking this one again.
