Not much aroma in a brown-colored ale with just a hint of a red tint. The flavor is a red cherry and sweet apples with lively carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy red-caramel color, thin off-white head. Light aromas of caramel, bread and baking spice. A little thin on a medium-bodied palate. Good effervescence. Candy/caramel flavor with a hint of metal close to the finish, which is medium-long. Above-average.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, quite a dark ruby pour, a little lacing, I’m not getting much of an aroma, no hops, no malt, nothing, boring. First sip is watery, not sweet, not bitter, not hippy. Boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, unknown date. Like the IPA, this pours relatively thick, murky, and hazy, reddish/copper color with a small one finger tan head that leaves some light lacing and holds a small cap. Aroma is heavy on caramel malt, sweet bread, brown sugar, some dark fruit notes, light chocolate, toffee, good strength. Flavor features caramel malts, biscuits and sweet bread, a little dark fruit, some citrus hops for balance, finishes semi-sweet and a bit watery. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Pretty darned good Red Ale, the aroma in particular is my favorite part.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells malty and sweet. Looks a deep amber red and pours with a nice frothy head that lingers a couple of minutes or so. The flavor is quite good at first, though it might get old before long. Crisp, somewhat subtly hoppy finish. Overall, I am pleasantly surprised with this Irish Red.
