A classic Irish red ale brewed for the color, flavor & aroma that comes from using a delicate blend of barley malts,whole British hops, pure water and a special blend of British yeasts. Clean and crisp flavor, alluring aroma and unmistakable natural color.

ChadPolenz (1690) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 19A American Amber Ale

NOTE: Bottled version seems to be completely different recipe from draught version which is an Irish Red.

AROMA: Quite sweet with prominent caramel presence. Faint citrusy hops. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Mostly clear copper/amber hue. Pours to a small beige foam. Little lacing or retention. 1/3

FLAVOR: Plenty of caramelized malt presence makes for a sweet palette. Some toffee too. Bitterness is noticeable, but fairly mild overall. Some graham cracker flavor in background. Citrusy hops are faint. Not bad, but not really to spec 11/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body and carbonation. Smooth. Mostly clean finish. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Much sweeter than the average Amber/Red ale, though this bottle is about 4 months old. Probably good fresh, but this is decent 6/10

CofStout47 (22) - Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2015

PhillyBeer2112 (2758) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Draft. Meh. Caramelized malts and tobacco herbal and earthy hops. The hops are somewhat dominant in this otherwise very British-y beer. But the herbal tobacco notes are unpleasant on the whole.. Canít love it.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Very slightly hazy reddish orange pour with a quickly dissipating head. Bottle gushed a bit upon opening. Malty, some cardboard. Hint of sweetness. Not a lot else to say about this.

djd07 (10018) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with small white head. The aroma is dog water and wet newspaper. Medium mouthfeel with strong grain and wet biscuit, decent.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle and served in No-Nik Pint Glass: Reddish amber hue with a good head and lace. Yepper crystal malts, slight fruity twang but a nice touch of English-Styled hop bitterness. Sure a touch of butterscotch but completely within standards. I am liking this more than expected after the awfulness that was the first brew I had from them.
