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!

Pours reddish copper with a beige head. The aroma is very butterscotchy with some mellow caramel malt and a hint of cinnamon. The body is fairly think with sharp carbonation. The flavor starts out with a metallic taste and some butteriness that seems like it is probably diacetyl There is some think maltiness tucked in there as well. The finish is watery and tinny. A bid disappointment.

Only a step up from my memories of Killians. A little strange to me, not terrible, but not great. Flavor is malty but a little wet towel taste to it as well.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Had a nice amber pour with creamy light tan head. Flavor was of malts and a little bit of caramel. Flavor was not so dominant overall and there wasn’t a lot of hop character. Would drink but probably won’t but again.

Bottle. Malty aroma. Ruby color with a decent tan head. Near medium body with coarse carbonation. Flavor is roasted caramel with a bare minimum of hop. Finish is really malty. Hops build, but it’s really underhopped. For me, rather unpleasant. More like a weird dunkel than an ale.

Slipstream (2461) - USA - MAR 19, 2008
Dark amber pour - not that red, really. Good but quickly sinking head. Fresh, pleasant aroma. Flavor is dry, but still malty. Nicely blended flavors. Hops are on the light side. Similar to a bitter or a pale ale. Pleasant, but not a powerhouse.

This reddish brown ale poured with a thick tan head and a malty aroma. There is a sweet malt flavor with some carbonation and a bitter finish.

This is another great beer from my favorite brewer This beer has a red color, white head and ample carbonation. Has a nice caremel flavor balanced by some mild hps.

This is a VERY nice red beer. I haven’t had a lot of Irish Red’s, but this one I liked. A welcomed addition to the SA mix pack. Malty, caramel flavor with very mild hops on the finish. Good.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Poured from bottle 3/2008. Malty aroma, Red mahogany with tan persistent head. I taste toasted malt, caramel, coriander, and mild hops. Aftertaste of burnt veggies. Taste a bit of alcohol toward the end. A nice St. Patrick’s day beer.

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.
