4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark red with small white head. Aroma is subtle and sweet. Flavor of caramel malt balanced by some slight hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied with sticky mouthfeel and slightly bitter finish. Pretty good.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Gross. Nope nope nope. Bad flavor or some sort of combination that just doesn’t do any Irish ale justice in this can. Avoid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can to pint. Attractive pour. Dark copper with a thin off-white head. Significant lacing. Very aromatic--largely biscuit. Sharp carbonation. Taste is more biscuit with a touch of roasted nuts. My only problem with this beer is the lack of finish. Flavors taper off abruptly in a way reminiscent watery/old soda. Cool can. Overall pretty good.

Strong malt aroma - some crystal and carared. Mouth feel is medium to full bodied but not heavy on the palate. Some crystal malt sweetness mixed with a hint of dark roasted coffee. Not a bad beer at all.
