3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ll call it a copper pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is all malt with an overall earthy aroma. Nice malty flavor with some caramel, bread and some toasted cereal malts. Finish is crisp and has a lingering malty aftertaste. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2012 Dark red,short head,more than average carbonation.Clear.Nice looking.
Aroma is malty ,dark ,some mineral. Toasted Oatmeal cookie. Almost burnt toast,probably the dark carmel malt. Heavy toasty grainy. Strong toasted nutty cookie .Dusty.
Taste is pretty good,distinct grain maltiness(maybe german or english)with dark burnt carmel sweetness,some hoppiness but mildish. Nutty toasty.Fairly slick but smooth creamy with a fullish body. Not too hoppy it has bigger malt presence. Pretty good balance in taste with a nice conditioned or mildy complex taste. Smooth mellow mild peppery bittering finish that melts away.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Prado. Poured a dark clearish red, with a white head, and some lacing. Aroma is malty and a little roasty. Taste is is similarly dominated by malt, with some bready and roasted notes. A slightly bitter finish gives the beer a little hop to balance. Mouth is pretty well carbonated and medium bodied. Overall, a decent ale.

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.

Bottle, nice deep red pour with a tiny white, faded to a thin collar quickly. Aroma was nice and rich caramel malts, some sweetness, and a bit of roastiness. Flavors are straight up malty, lots of caramel malts give it a bit of sweetness although it finishes with a nice hop bitterness. Mouthfeel was decent, not watery thin but not as full as I may have liked. Not a bad local red.

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.

3.1 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.

Pours a clear deep red-brown with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of caramel, some chocolate, and fruit. Flavor of caramel malts with some citrus hops with a slightly bitter finish. A little thin and watery on the finish, but it is very drinkable.

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.
