"At last an Irish Red Ale with a traditional hop flavour to balance the fruit character of the yeast and the luscious caramel flavour notes delivered from the malts used, as opposed to artificially added."
Ingedients: Pale, Crystal, Wheat and Chocolate Malts; Galena, Nugget and East Kent Golding hops.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Poured a clear orange/amber with a thick, dense, tan head that has excellent retention and leaves sheety nitro lace all the way down the glass. Closed, muted aroma like most cask ales especially Irish/British varieties. You can pick out some orange sherbet if you really try along with metallic notes, old cherry flavors that I am used to in Guinness. Taste is buttery, spicy, bitter, peppery, creamy, moves to tinny. Has a weak amount of fruitiness I get from the EKG and Nugget hops. Light bodied, spicy palate.

This is actually am great red at first but settles in to an overall mediocre performer. It’s creamy and pours a slightly cloudy red. Would not drink again.

TheBeerGod (5639) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle. Reddish amber pour with a tall, dense beige head. Nose is malty with caramel and a pleasant nuttiness. Spicy hops and floral hops round this out. Taste is nutty and caramelly with tons of malt, earthy hops, spicy hops, and dried fruit. Body is medium with a moderate, creamy carbonation. Ends with more malt and nuttiness, caramel, spicy hops and pleasant fruit notes. Hints of tea as well.

Rustyham (1807) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2010
White lacing of a nice deep reddish orange, aroma of jalapeño peppers and toffee, flavor is too light, only slight malt. Very smooth, but too light on the toungue. Sampled at "Guess who’s back..."

Butters (3983) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Sampled at the Guess Who’s Back tasting. Clear light red pour. Great Toffee aroma. Flavor is not quite malty enough. A little thin. Smells better than it tastes, but still not worth the price. cool bottle though.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Pulltab is pretty nice. Pours a beige ring of head with a copper body. Aromas of caramel and malt. Flavor is caramel, spicy, some herbal hops. Finish is dry.

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Sampled at Guess Who’s Back Tasting. Smells of boring as malt. Tastes cleaner than I expected. A little spice, pumpkin, herbal qualities. Mehhh.

Leighton (14753) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light red with a fine, white head. Holds a faintly sweet malt aroma with some earthy hops. Light caramel notes in the flavor, some sweetness, slightly bitter. Light to medium in body, average carbonation. Pretty nice.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 30, 2010
(330 ml bottle from Bootleggers) Pours clear coppery amber with a big fat biscuit head that recedes to a big fat lumpy cap. Aroma of skunk (light), hay, honey, sweat, pine and metal. Mouthfeel smooth, almost too smooth (ie., no texture), very light prickliness. Big, foamy, broken rings and gobs of lacing. Flavor is dull and muted - some sort of eggy quasi-caramel but mostly just a bitter, almost metallic taste with very little malt base supporting it. Very filtered, dull quality about it.
