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.

Nice ruby read appearance. Draft pour in a dimple mug at Cheers Boston. Decent head, some lacing. Goes down smooth and has a little aftertaste. Nice session beer while in Boston for a few days! Not much nose.

Pours clear red amber with white lacing. Kind of a musky, grain aroma. Palate is thin, with a very light fruitcake flavor. Marginal at best.

Pint at the Cheers bar at Boston. Average and drinkable. Red in color. A little bitter and lager-like. No foam. Sweet notes in the aroma and flavor. Medium bodied and refreshing.

radarsock (1003) - Vermont, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Pours an orangeish deep amber with a head one-to-two fingers in length which sinks gradually. Smells and tastes of dextrose, crisp malt extract, spice, noble German hops and brief citrus. Nice experience!

Tap from Dick’s. Pours breakfast tea coloured with no head and no lacing. Malty sweet top to bottom, some red plum notes. .Very light in mouth. Pretty basic for style.

johnnnniee (2461) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 2, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep amber almost red with a decent sized tan head that shows great retention. Smells of malty caramel and toffee with just enough earthy floral hops to make it a Sam Adams beer. The taste is a little sweet and a bit malty with a great Irish Red caramel feel to it. Spicy earthy hops provide some balance to the sweetness. Medium body with a moderate to spirited level of carbonation and a sweet malty mouthfeel. This is a nice Irish Red with a bit of a kick in the hops. I liked it a bit.

My biggest issue with this beer is how is this a red? Flavor it tastes like a super malty amber Pours a deep amber brick color with small off white Nose is soft and malty. Flavor is very malty and a little sandy...hops are completely drowned out nicely.carbonated.but a little grainy in the mouthfeel department

Tap. Amber pour with minimal head. Caramel, dry fruit, brown sugar. Not too exciting.
