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!

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 23, 2008
12 ounce bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (February 2008), consumed a little colder than cellar temperature from a Coors Banquet glass. The voluminious orangish-tan smooth head fills 2/3 of the glass but falls rather quickly above the dark clear amber liquid, leaving smooth sheets of lacing behind...the nose is unremarkable but not unpleasant, vaguely toasty-malty, amber-ale like though with no reall hop sharpness or pungency at all....the body is moderately sweet, somewhat thin, just a touch metallic, readily quaffable, and dull as all get-out....some woody dryness at the finish helps cut the growing cloying qualities; but this is just a nothing beer.

Pours clear deep copper with flat head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, toffee. Taste is caramel and butterscotch sweet with a faint bitter finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

Old rating. Big caramel and maltiness in an Amberish. Better than macros, but sort of same generic taste.

Kinda meh beer. Good when you are just looking for a better grade of a macro bud type of a beer. Not really anything to get excited about.

Just not digging the caramel in this Irish red ale. Just tastes like brown sugar and excessive carbonation.

TBone (14174) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle from San Juan. Deep ruby-copper color, medium-sized beige head. Berryish, caramelly aroma. Medium-bodied. Caramelly-candyish flavor with some berries. Sweet version of Irish red, tastes industrial.

Brandon1989 (437) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Pours a dark amber reddish color with a medium white head. The aroma is caramel, hops, and some fruit. The taste is similar but I am not a fan of this beer.

really indistinctive malt Amber brew that is hardly a step from mass produced beer.

DavoleBomb (1522) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.25 A: Clear orange amber color. One and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 2.75 S: Buttery with light caramel and some toastiness. Not much else going on. Super boring nose. 3.0 T: Taste is also underwhelming. Light caramel, toastiness, some buttery notes. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess. 3.0 D: This is about as average as it gets. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing right either. Boring beer. DavoleBomb, Jun 05, 2013
