3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Pours reddish amber with a medium slowly fading beige head. Aroma and Taste is caramel malt, yeast and fruity notes with some mild floral earthy hops. A medium bodied palate with a sweet mouth feel mad god carbonation. Finishes with a sweet caramel malt, yeast and fruity flavor with some moderate earthy hops and nutty flavor. A good session brew.

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.

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.

Dark red colored ale, slightly sweet, balanced hops and malts, a good ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a nice sudsy white head. Aromas of malts, spices, and bread. Flavors pretty much the same with some fruit coming through and the spices are pretty dominant. A lot of earthy hops also and pretty prickly on the tongue. Overall not bad but my chub can point me elsewhere for a better offering next time.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours dark, reddish amber with a quick off-white head. Nose is weak and fairly uniform sweet malt. Taste is roughly the same. I’d be more detailed but there’s not much to comment on....typical single dimentional Irish Red. Boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours cloudy reddish brown - gusher that slowly settled. Some paper and faint funkiness in the nose, but mostly malt, woodsy and sweet fruitiness. Highly carbonated - light to medium body w/ some good dryness in the finish. Flavors are sweet caramel and malt. Some spice like ginger and pepper. Pretty balanced. Not bad, but it doesn’t really come together for me. I didn’t notice much to suspect infection other than the gush. I tried the entire 4-pack and flavors were the same, it’s just OK to me.

Decent red with a bubbly finish. Was this brewed in a three hundred foot sequoia? Maybe.
