2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
tap Aroma is sweet, of cream, sugar, and malt. Flavor features malt, candy sugar, toffee, and a strange skunkiness. Not terrible, but definitely on par with my (low) expectation

Can pours deep amber with a finger of off-white head that fades quickly to a small cap. Aroma is mostly caramel. Taste of biscuit and caramel with a faint bitterness lurking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Served a deep amber color with a thick head and ample lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of citrus and caramel sweetness and grain in the background. Taste is malty with some caramel sweetness, bit of citrus and grain. Nice bitterness and a malty finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy with a nice touch of character. Enjoyable beer that is refreshing and a leg up on most ales of this style.

Santa Fe Irish Red Ale has a thick, somewhat soapy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear (with a slight haze), rust-red appearance, lots of bubble streams, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is not too strong, but one can detect sweet, bready, crusty malt, and a slight citrus note. Taste is of all of those elements, with a noticeable tannin quality. Bitterness is low. The mouthfeel is light to medium and a bit soft, and Santa Fe Irish Red Ale finishes refreshing, easy-going, and delicious. I recommend checking this one out! RJT

This Irish Red has a dark red color and is mostly clear-bodied, with a dark caramelized nose and palatable sweetness. The mouth is sweet as well and very well-balanced, with a malty pleasance. It’s easy and enjoyable. I like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can that I got a case of for cheap. Dark red-brown color, good head. Smells super malty, not bad. Flavor is robust and malty, cereal, sort of surprising given the abv. Good session beer even though its a little darker in color. Santa Fe makes some pretty decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 The aroma blends caramel and bread malts with dough yeast, and the appearance fuses a clear reddish brown color with a large white head. The taste has a mild sourness, slight umami, and a touch of sweetness, and the palate fuses a thick and slick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a long malty finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint on tap. Clean-looking copper clear beer with light lacing and a small head. Smells of quality malt, plenty of aroma. Nice clean taste as well, with biscuit, caramel, and slight toast--light hoppiness. The aftertaste is the low point for me, with a bit of a lack of finish. Beginning and middle are full enough.

I had this at the Flying Saucer. Pours reddish-brown with a tan head. Taste Carmel, biscuit, nutty. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again.
