This was a pretty nice red ale that had a good malt and finish. Poured a light red color with alot of nice head.

Bottle. Pours an amber red color with no head. Nose is malty and grainy for an ale. Taste is sweet, malty and syrupy. Strong caramel, without any decent flavor or taste. Finishes just as poorly as it starts. Leave it. Quaff Score 5 / 10

lots of caramel and almost sickly sweet aroma. pours a bubbly light brown hue, just a covering of a head. taste is sweet as expected, but malts come through better there and the sugars are little more nuanced.

Pours a red brown with a beige head and sweet malty, grainy aroma. Taste is light and not very flavorful, some sweet malt, caramel, and bread notes but wasnít a fan

Deceptive that itís called "Red" but is an amber ale. Definitely wouldnít have ordered it. Pours a transparent amber with a smallish white head. Decent balance, but itís lacking ingredients. This tastes like something the Ram would brew Ė intended for those who donít care much for flavor, and are just looking for something quaffable. Slightly metallic Ė needs a much fuller mouthfeel to counter the carbonation. A bit fruity, but not much to it other than a balance of weak hops and caramel malts.

I for one enjoy this. Itís quite malt forward; not getting a lot of hops. But the malts are abundant and delicious. Quite a bit of caramel notes. Recommended.

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2008
22 oz’r. Great lightly roasted caramel malt backbone with a big, sweet toffee and cracker component and just enough light pine hop presence to bring it together. Very light citrus notes. Great session beer.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Pours a reddish amber with a thin white head that didnít last long for me. Has a light, sweet, toasty malt aroma. Flavor is toast and caramel malt with a light, crisp, flowery hop flavor on the finish. I found this a bit boring, but very easy drinking.

Prufrockstar (959) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bomber. Aroma is bread, caramel, grain, dirty dishsoap. Muddy red/brown, white head that dissipates to a ring. Taste is caramel-sweet, grainy, only the slightest bit of bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation, short finish. Sticky mouth residue long after itís done, but during each sip the texture is thin. Overall: No idea how this is for the style (my first Irish ale as far as I can remember), but

Malt up front. Mild hop balance. Sips crisp and carbonated . More caramel malt flavor than I prefer in a red ale.
