Deep in color and full bodied. It gets its splendid hop aroma from Fuggle hops, accenting the rich flavors of this wonderful well-rounded ale.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Sampled on draft at the Pratt St Ale House this beer poured a red-brown color with a medium sized creamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was malty and a bit toasty. The flavor was bitter, dryish and astringent with a fruity undertone. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

On tap - dark tea color with a decent head and lacing. Has an aroma of white grapes and a sweet taste up front. A malty profile, thin body and finish.

j12601 (9565) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper amber with a thin tan to white head. Gentle malt and almost isopropyl, fruity bread, oxidized maybe? Odd for sure. Sweet, malt and toffee, something odd flavorwise, much akin to the nose. Gentle bitterness lingering on the finish, with more breast fruit.

Fatehunter (2274) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Pours a finger of head on a dark brown body. The aroma is mild grain. The taste is lemon and grain, mild sweetness. The texture is softer with moderate carbonation. It’s a nice and easy drinker.

6%ABV. Irish Style Red Ale Not much in the nose, but then it might’ve just been me getting into town in the middle of pollen season. Deep amber red color about 16ºSRM. Soapy mouthfeel. Moderately carbonated. Nice clean bitter hops. Roasted malt body. Slightly sour tang but eclipsed by prolonged bitter finish. Smooth.

Huhzubendah (3543) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 3, 2013
On draft at The Big Hunt in D.C. The beer is amber to crimson with a small, white head. The aroma is caramel malt, lightly sweet, a touch of hops. Malt forward and tasty. Very fresh. Mild bitterness and light hop presence. Easy drinking and smooth with a surprisingly robust body. I enjoyed this and would have it again.

Pours a reddish amber. Thin tan head. Nice lacing. At their tap room. Malty and slightly sweet. Nice beer. Under rated.

nimbleprop (7560) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 2, 2013
16oz pour at the Big Hunt DC. Pours a clear, brick red with some creamy, white head. Nose of cracker, malt, a little orange, some bread crust. Flavor is the same, fairly standard, light bitterness, orange, malt, cracker. Clean finish. You know... standard Irish ale.

blipp (8267) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Draft. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Faint malty base, both sweet and toasty, with some light bitterness on the back end. Not bad.

I thought it was a pretty good irish red. Nice dark color with a smal lacing head. Good balance of bitterness with some sweet malt. Enjoyable.
