Tap - Probably the best Irish Ale I’ve had, but that isn’t saying much. Some malt, hops in the middle, and a little sweet at the end. Flavors were muted, beer tasted fresh.

I’ve always found "Irish Red" ales and lagers to be a bit bland but Sam Adam’s does it again, I really liked this. Had a nice malty smell and drank very smooth and had kind of a sweet aftertaste, very tasty . Brick Red is the perfect description of the color because it was a deep, dark amber/red color. I really hope this gets marketed and is in stores, it’d be one I’d pick up on occasion that’s for sure. It went really well with the buffalo wings I had.

Crystal clear red in the glass. Malt and caramel aroma on the nose. Mainly malty palate with just a touch of bitterness.

On tap at the brewery. Said to be special but I think out is because is not quite good enough to be nationally released. A but of a rusty taste. Hints of oktoberfest but that might be because of having that one right before this one. Our guide is talking about about their fancy glass I dont have yet, and I am jealous.

Not a lot to say about this one. Medium hoppy red ale. Finish has a kinda weird oily texture that I find off-putting. At least some money is going to charity.

On tap at Bell in Hand (oldest taven in U.S.) Boston. Poured a transparent amber color with medium head. Smells like light carmel malts. Taste is similar. A bit on the watery side. Didn’t finish the pint.
