COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich and malty ale originated in Ireland in 1710. It has a deep red color and distinctive caramel flavor from its Pale and Caramel malts. The malt sweetness is balanced by the earthy notes of East Kent Goldings hops. Cheers!

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler. Clear deep russet with some red hues and a decent beige head. Malty nose, with caramel, some toffee, ginger cookie, biscuit and grassy hops. Sweet malt, lo-med bitterness, dry nuttiness, some caramel and dark bread. Medium bodied, balanced, nicely carbonated and overall highly drinkable. Cool.

A decent, but not a great red. Poured amber. Very malt forward, typical of reds, but not well balanced. I was expecting more. Didn’t get it. Not bad, just meh!

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.

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.
