Favorite of all time. Well balanced flavors, a little sweet, not too hoppy and bodes well with food.

Got my very first one and WOW! This is an Irish Red. Definite microbrew taste. Not at all weak like Killian’s irish Red. Gentle with maltiness and packed with flavor. Nice head...stickes to the glass nicely. Well done! Thank you once again Samuel Adams!

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Got this in a 12bottle sampler pack. Pours a beautiful deep red with a creamy white head. Aroma is malty and robust with hints of toast. Great flavor and a wonderful crisp and full finish. Great, great beer and the best red ive ever tasted. Highly recomended.

Bought a six of this yesterday as I had never seen it before and decided to give it a shot. Was very impressed. Quite possibly my favorite SA brew.

Pours a cloudy amber, with a nice head. Somewhat sweet and very easy to drink.

Malt, malt, malt with as Schlitz says just a kiss of the hops. Pours a beautiful red with a nice two-finger head that sticks around. Perfectly carbonated, not too sweet, doesn’t taste like puke if you let it sit for more than 45 seconds. Spicy but still extremely easy to knock down a sixer in two hours or so. Possibly the best looking beer out of the bottle and the most attractive bottle itself out there. This one is a regular in my cellar, definitely part of the weekly/monthly rotation.

aroma, deep roasted malts, flora, color is a rddish hue, faomy white head, taste, the rosted malts in this beer sing strongly, backend hops slightly flora, overall, i think this beer is underrated, its pretty good, and easy to drink!

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2008 Got this in a sam adams mix 12 pack. Im assuming it beat out the dunkelweizen to be added to the brewmasters collection. sweet malt on the nose. the flavor was more sweet malt with kind of a creamy finish. I was actually very impressed by this one. Not at all what I was expecting.
