3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber with white head and lace. Medium malt and a funky caramel or brown sugar aroma. Medium caramel/molasses flavor with a medium bitter. A bit foamy and a tad thin. Not a bad drinker but not very special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours red (obviously) with a small white head. Tastes much like a Killians red with light flavor of caramel. Light palate overall its just OK. Worth a try.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not much aroma, but what was there was all malt and nothing else. Has a reddish-copper hue and a very short off white head that provided nice lacing all the way down. A bit overcarbonated and watery, this doesn’t taste like any Irish Red (or Amber ale) I’ve ever had, but was crisp and easy to drink. Not much flavor here, with almost no hop presence makes it balanced in a bland sort of way. I would consider this to be a "starter" more than even a session type offering. Nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Metuchen,NJ location. Not much aroma here, maybe because of the sample size? Copper red brown color. Initial flavor that is strong in caramel and brown suger, but quickly dissipates. Hoppy finisih is spicy with some notes of pumperknickel, but I pick up too much hairspray flavors. The weakest of the sampler.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a pretty decent amber ale. Nice medium to deep maber, and a thin lasting off white head with some lace. Aroma is earthy and tea-like with hints of citrus and a nice light crystal malt backbone. More crystal malt throughout, caramel, toffee, light nuttiness and a good crisp clean bitter finish.
