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!

charcot25 (181) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Deep amber beer with off-white head. Has a nice aroma of yeast, bread and caramel. Taste is sweet with caramel and hard candy notes as well as a firm bitterness and dry roastiness, presumably from roasted barley. There is a touch of diacetyl. Smooth, full mouthfeel but finishes a little dry. Not bad.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Bottle, Pours a nice red to amber color, with a tan head, moderate aroma, some hops and citrus notes with medium malts. Taste is actually pretty good for a big brewery, they did well with this style which I usually find lacking but a nice a moderate mouthfeel make this a decent SA brew.

I was very underwhelmed by this offering from Sam Adams. I was hoping for more flavor than what I got. Wouldn’t buy again

Bottle: Dark brown, tawny color, tannish head. Nose of sweet light caramel, grass and some juniper. The flavor is balanced, chewy malts, generic bittering hops. OK Mouthfeel, good red. A bit lacking in punch but drinkable and a good body.

Very rich and malty....not bitter like other Irish ales tend to be. Decent aroma, with a solid palate....malty and crisp, with a nice balance between the hops and malt. Beer is a perfect fit for EKG hops. Very enjoyable and definitely one of the better brews from SA.
