COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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 (6111) - Newark, New Jersey, 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.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2013 With Tim. On tap at Pratt Street Ale House. Average red ale. Slight hop taste. Light in color. Nothing too special. Better the second time around.

On draught at the Wharf Rat, Baltimore 5/12/2012. Deep amber with a slight white head. Sweetish, caramel and berry fruits, with some hedgerow hops and moderately bitter finish. Ok.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2012
hazy brown-amber, good lacing but low white island for head. Dusty Nose is earth, mushroom, bit vegetal. Soft Flavor is dusty and grainy, soft body becoming the light profile, hints of chocolate. Almost a mild, like the softness.

Tap at Pratt St Alehouse. Pours a clear tea amber. Decent to weak head. Good lace. Muted biscuit and toffee nose. Taste is vegetal and astringent. Tree bark and chemical bitterness. Not sure what is up with their beers.

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Tap at PSA. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is cookie and biscuit malt, fruity esters and light earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light esters and hops, medium to light bitterness and a sweet finish. Light body and warmth with medium carbonation.
