Clear ruby copper color, light head cover, broad stripes of lace. Taste is fizzy caramel malt that grows a little through the palate, adding a bit of bittering at the finish. Slightly oily texture diminishes from the experience. Too similar to many Sam Adams offerings.

Draught @ Doyles: This one pours a crystal clear coppery color. There is a decent off-white head that left lots of lacing. Nice nose. Caramel malts, a subdued sweetness. Some spicy, earthy hops and a touch of pine. The taste is good. Very clean, well balanced, malty. Slightly dry, bitter finish. Nice.

Middelmatig bier op alle vlakken. Mooie amberkleur, maar het glas laat al meteen zien dat je te maken hebt met een weinig complexe doordrinker. Weinig neus, geen duidelijk aroma. Waterig, lichtzoet, licht bitter.

On Draft at Embassy Suites Boston Airport. Dark Amber color. Aroma is metallic and mouthfeel is rather thin. Very little lacing. It does have a decent flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a amber red with a tan head and lacing. It has a sweet aroma of caramel malt, with the same flavor profile and a not-too-sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brick Red to me tasted quite a decent bit like Boston Lager, with slightly less bitterness. Brick Red has what you’d expect -- a red color. I honestly can’t quite remember the smell exactly, but I do remember that at the time, I had no complaints about Brick Red. The taste of this beer is the best part... like I said, somewhat similar to Boston Lager, but more palatable for me with almost no bitterness to speak of. This and 26.2 (Both Boston exclusives, unfortunately...) are both two of the best Samuel Adams varieties. I can understand and appreciate why they’re only available in Boston, but I still wish they’d bottle it and ship it!

A deeper more tasty version of Samuel Adams Irish Red. Mild head with rich spice aroma and felt heavily carbonated. Dark ruby red color. Had a mildly sweet and dry finish. Would have again no problem.
