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!

Bottle. Pours red with a white head. Caramel malt dominance, touch of hop bitterness. Smooth, medium carb. Pretty basic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ScottWallace82 (64) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle into a glass. Pours an almost red, amber color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Malty, biscuity aroma with almost no hops. Medium mouthfeel. Very sweet, malty flavor. A decent beer.

Sparkingly clear, copper color, tall, pink head. Yeasty, feeble nose. Medium body, delicate and well balanced mouthfeel, low heat, adequate length. Bitter, pp in the finish, not without sime sweetness in the background. Could do the job of a lager if what you prefer most of the time is an ale. Predominantly yeasty, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a deep amber into the glass, with a wispy white head that leaves light soap lacing down the glass. The nose is of muddy caramel and fruit. Flavors are semi-dry, of caramel malt, some light citric notes, pale malts and breadiness. Nothing "over-the-top", a medium-body and perfectly controlled carbonation keeps the mouthfeel drinkable to the palate, integration intact. Dry complexities, this is a nice take on the Irish Red from Sam.

Impressive four-finger head from a gentle but upright pour. Lots of spotty lace. The color is smudged copper with a small amount of chill haze. Predominantly malty without being sweet smell. Lots of crystal and other lightly toasted grains. Fruity, reminding me of madeira. Toasted biscuits with a touch of molasses sweetness. Subtle hop shows up in the swallow, while the aftertaste is strongly malty. Very nice body with a good carbonation level (like skim milk). Coats the tongue on the swallow. Overall, this is a malty beer that does not go extreme in any way. Easy to drink.

I don't generally like Irish red style beers but this one is easily drinkable and looks great in a glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet taste and smell almost like cherry. A little caramel as well. Decent beer but could have more flavor
