A little odd to me. Quite roasty, maybe too much. Would probably pass on it next time. Not off putting I guess, just didn’t do much for me.

Bookseeb (113) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Appearance has a dark ruby red color supporting a dissipating head leaving nil lace. Smell of the roasted malt upfront leaving the hops in the back. Taste of the roasted specialty malt with enough sweetness and hop to blend it. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation. Not great, but a good Irish red.

Bottle. Ruby-brown beer with a tan head. Malt and light roast aroma with light cocoa. malt and light citrus flavor with light toffee. Medium bodied. Malt and light toffee lingers with citrus.

maxwelldeux (3551) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle from the Spring mixer. Nose is extremely yeasty, and actually ends up being closer to a saison than anything else I’ve smelled recently. Taste is a little sour up front, but then finishes off with some toasty bread malty sweetness. Odd beer.

Off white head rises up to about a 1/2" and dies back immediately... the brew is clear deep copper/cherry wood.... Nose is clean dark toast... fermented out caramel essence. Flavor mirrors the aroma with something that reminds me just a tiny bit of roasted malt... crisp and clean with just enough malt sweetness to make this crushable... medium/light body with light carbonation. Pretty authentic... no diacetyl like many Continental brothers.

geologyguy (679) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2013
expired from bi-lo, nice smell, almost of ginger...but fairly mild...hints of wild/sour fermentation in the smell and taste...good!!...crisp carbonated finish with lingering sourness that is just right

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Deep amber, slightly dull from some sediment, large frothy sandy head, little lacing.   Soft pine and pith nose.   Has a slight rye aspect?   Sweet bready malts, almost whole wheat, with some sweet citrus peel and pith.   Not what I was expecting for an Irish Ale.   Backside seems a little peaty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Moderate breadiness on the finish, touch of caramel, mild peat, pale toasted malts, with soft citrus peel and pith bitterness.   Not bad, but pretty pedestrian.

poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 12, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small collapsing cream-colored head. Aroma is caramelly, dough, metal, toast. Taste is malty sweet with little bitterness. Texture is slightly oily, body thin to near medium.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle. Poured reddish amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were malt forward, quite sweet, some caramel and toffee, low bitterness. Standard, forgettable red.

BucannonXC5 (829) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2013
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego, Calif.) Price: $13.97 for a summer variety 12-pack Purchased: March 30, 2013 Consumed: April 10, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a reddish brown nut color with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head that dissipated almost right away. Minimal wet lacing on the side, poor retention on the top on the way down. Smelled very malty right from the beginning. Got dark fruits and malts full nuts, toast and caramel. Seemed to be some faint bitter notes in there late. Reminded me slightly of a Newcastle. Tasted a lot more bland than the smell. Still malty, but not as flavorful as the smell. Toast, nutty and faint caramel. Medium-to-light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Longer smooth finish. The definition of an average beer.
