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. Clear ruby pour with 2-fingers of off-white head. This one looks great. The nose is very malty, with vinous fruit, and caramel notes. The taste is caramel malty, hoppy, with vinous fruit and berry notes, with a crisp and smooth palate.

Pours red and translucent, not really, but amber with a red tint, (use your imagination). A 2-3 inch mess of a foam head. Nice foam though. Smells like malt and sugar. Nothing new here. Taste cold and malty with a small amount of spice. Average malty beer, kinda boring. A little thick on the consistency.

Beautiful dark orange-red with significant off-white head, fades quickly to a scum. Nose is subdued, with caramel and some honeyed sweetness. Some unrefined graininess in the taste, with caramel and mostly toffee, a bit of honeydew melon. Characteristically UK hop profile, dusty and lightly floral. Slight sourness. Creamy, moderate carbonation.

Seems like a lot of new Irish Red Ales are com iung out right around St. Patty’s Day. Well, here is yet another one. This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to large sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a typically carbonated orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty and dirty sock. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a acidic aftertaste. The strange flavor contained notes of mild brown malt. Not one that I would likely buy again.

12oz bottle. The beer poured a red/slight orange color with an okay frothy, tan head. I smelled a caramel malt with slight floral hops. The beer went down with a light body and slightly oily texture with little to no carbination and a slight bitterness. Overall, I am not a big fan and I probably won’t buy it again.
