Bottle. Pours clear red amber, small fizzy head that dissipates quickly with little lacing. Aroma is caramel and grass. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, little bitterness. Light body. Unoffensive.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Deep amber red, with an off white head and average lacing. Malty aroma and smells of fruit and caramel. Taste is sweet up front with caramel and maybe a fruit kind of taste, hard to detect. Finish is clean with a bit of hop character. Medium palate, overall a good but not great beer.

Looks great in the glass. Mahogany red with a thin but lasting head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts. Flavor is mild and somewhat watery with a creamy texture. Decent but not memorable.

Very good easy drinker with an amber pour & malts on the nose. Very light malt & hop profile and an all around easy going good session beer.

This beer came in the spring sampler and is a pretty good beer. It is pretty typical of a red and had the color and malt sweetness associated with this style. I like a red to dry out at the end a little more, so would have preferred that they increase the hops a little more, though I like the choice of hop. Good beer.

355 ml bottle from The Beer Store in New York. Pours an amber-red in color with a bit of white head. Light caramel and malt aroma. Tastes moderately malty, like bread crust with some earthy hop notes in the finish.

This a mediocre irish red, but I highly recommend sticking with a killians.

Bottle. Typical Sam Adams toasted malt and caramel aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet. Bitter finish. Not my favorite SA, but still a smooth well-finished beer.
