2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a clear reddish copper color. The head is a one finger light cream shade with an excellent creamy texture. Retention isn’t great, but the lacing left on the glass is good.
S: The only thing I really notice aroma-wise are sweet caramel malts and earthy hops. Maybe a touch of diacetyl comes through, I’m not really sure. Whatever it is, it’s not very impressive.
T: Just like I said in the aroma, it’s caramel malts and some earthy hops to finish it. There’s a faint touch of fruity esters and some hazelnut in the midtaste, but this is very simple otherwise. This does a good job of dictating exactly what the aroma suggested - by being quite mediocre.
M: This comes off rather sweet and syrupy; given its clean texture, it feels rather strange on the palate. If any beer needs a drier finish, this is it. Not particularly drinkable for that reason.
O: Can’t say I’m a huge fan of this one. It’s hard to really place what I don’t like about this, but it ultimately doesn’t come together nearly as much as it should.

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

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown with a good 1" beige head, stripes of lace. Nice aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is edgy malt that turns sweeter on a lightly carbonated swallow. The whole thing moves from there to a lightly bittered finish that becomes more earthy as it drifts for several "minutes." A solid, easy-drinking brew.
