2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I tried this the other night. The look is real amber and has a nice aroma. I did expect more flavor, but it still tastes good and goes down easy. I will buy another 6 pack.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Red body with a fairly decent off-white head. The head dissipated rather quickly, but at least it produced some lacing. The aroma is fairly malty, while there are also hop and acidic notes. The flavor is much like the aroma. Carbonation level is perhaps a bit on the lighter side, yet it seems to fit the style. Overall, I found this beer to be enjoyable, but I doubt if Iíll always have a supply on hand.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful clear red pour with a tall foamy head that falls at a normal pace. Nose is sweet and malty with hints of fruit and hop. The heavy body allows this beer to deliver that sweet malt flavor slowly and lets it mix with the lite bitter hop finish. Im a stout man so I think this is a great beer. But I can see how Irish Ale lovers would find this a bit heavy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Sun Devil Liquors - Pours a deep amber color with a one and a half finger thick light tan head. Light lacing. Aroma and flavor is toasted caramel malt with light esters. Medium body. A run of the mill Irish ale.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours rather nice off red amber. Taste is so-so for the style.. im not a fan of the caramel and slight syrupy mouth which is thin.

surprised by the hoppy finish, the after-taste of malt is quite good, appearance excellent, not an irish red in my mind, but decent

2.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer is confused. It pours a beautiful off-red with a rich and creamy malt head.
Excellent nose of fresh bakery and caramel.
But thatís where it ends. The flavor skips around. Itís not complex and not simple. This is one of the most hard to describe tastes Iíve come across. It doesnít really taste like a true irish red, but I canít tell what itís trying to do. I donít think it does either. Itís not terrible, but itís not all that good either. Iím rather disapointed in it, and probably wonít try it again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice deep copper color with full head. Although this is not a bad beer, I was generally underwhelmed (and a bit confused) by the flavor. I thought the balance of malts and hops were off. It was like this brew couldnít make up its mind about what it was all about. Not terrible by any stretch of the imagination, but I wonít be rushing out to buy more.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very good brew from SA. Rich and malty, easy to drink. Crisp. Goes down like water, but has a very solid flavor/palate. Enjoyable.

Most definitely not one of my favorites. I was expecting more from them. I did not care for the combination of malts in the body, nor the hoppiness on the finish. Overall very disappointing.
