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!

Commercial description nails it. The best Irish Red I have enjoyed to date. Pours deep red/ruby with small, but lasting, off white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, English hops. Taste is creamy caramel perfectly in sync wuth the heavenly EKG hops. Mouthfeel is velvety smooth and oh-so-easy to drink.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Pours a clear red into the english pint glass with an inch head. A very sweet malty aroma with hints of nuts and barley. An enjoyable malty flavor with caramel, vanilla and brown sugar. A decent irish ale.

This is another solid brew from Sam Adams. Creamy and malty with a little hops in it, it goes down fine. However, you absolutely cannot switch from this to an IPA or vice versa, as it will make the other beer taste horrible.

Cornfield (5506) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Nice pour, a deep caramel body with a sustained, foamy beige head. Lots of lace. The aroma’s a dull carmel with a light earthy bitterness. The bitterness is stronger in the flavor and a soft nutiness is also present. Rather uneventful, making it fairly true to style.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Pours a dark amber color w/ a tall froth. Good head retention and lacework. Aromas of sweet malted biscuits and brandy. Medium full nectar w/ good carbonation. Nice and malty w/ roasted amber flavors. Biscuits, cherry essence, brandy, all whipped together with a defined hop bittering component to finish. The English hop variety used is very distinguishable.
