Pours caramel, tenacious head. Nose is somewhat metallic for me. Average carbonation. Rich mouthfeel, shallow character, subtle hops. Enjoyable, but not memorable

Pours a very clear, medium red color. About two fingers khaki colored head. Has pretty good retention, good lacing.
Aroma is malty, quite malty. Pretty nutty, a little bready. A pretty good caramel aroma. Not a lot of hops.
Taste is well balanced. Leaning sweet, but not too much. Enough noticeable earthy hops to keep it in check. Good bit of toffee and caramel. Nutty.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Smooth, a little slick. There’s a surge of earthy hops at the tail end. Still it finishes clean. This is an easy drinking beer.
Overall, I like this a lot. It’s very mellow, and pretty delicious. This is perhaps a little less sweet than other Irish Reds I’ve had. I will recommend this, and I am eager to try it again.

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!

Originally rated on 5/19/08. A nice looking red hued body with a thin head, tasted slightly sweet with hints of caramel, and malts. it was a little bitter but no too bad. A fair brew and worth a try but it wasnt interesting enough for me to buy more

12oz Flasche. Orange-braunes Bier mit flachem Schaum. Es ruecht schön nach Röstmalz. Geschmack angenehm herb. Das geröstete Malz kommt schön heraus. Bitteres Finish.

(Bottle). Pours a red-amber complexion with persistent white head and glass lacing. Bread aroma. The flavor is a simple mild malt with lingering hop balance. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Poured out a very nice golden orange with a bright amber, short lived head. Aroma was very floral, maybe heather? Taste was floral and citrus, very IPA. Average.

Definitely drinkable, but it does not stand out on its own. It really never excelled (or failed) in any category It has a weak head, and I almost felt like I was drinking a soda.

I think this was the first Irish Red I ever drank, and it’s probably still better than Killian’s, the same way stubbing your toe is better than stubbing your toe and breaking your toenail.
