One of the best Irish reds, even though no one I met, think the same as me...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Crisp clear amber color with light carbonation. Very light toast aroma portends a light malty mouthfeel. Hoppiness is very subdued. Very Bass-like, with a little more hop character.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Thin tan head which did not last long. Nice aroma of brown sugar and a little hops. Dark amber in color. Flavor was ok. A decent amount of malt with only a touch of hops. Little sweet. Finish was clean and somewhat refreshing. Or maybe it was the fact that I had just finished a 90+ min rugby practice and the puddle of water on the pitch would have been refreshing. Still a decent beer and better than just about all of the macro brews out there.

All of a sudden, I see this stuff everywhere on tap. I don't know if they are giving this stuff away or what, but I didn't care for it. Dark amber color with a bit of sweetness and a mellow hop finish. I guess Guinness is everywhere and soon this will be as well. Another tap handle wasted.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Brownies Pub in Philly. Nothing really going on here. Besides a little creamy taste. Tasted and looked like an Irish red.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - This beer had a nice copper color and big head. The beer was very smooth with a proper amount of carbonation. A wee bit sweet and slightly light on the malt.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a decent beer. It did not seem to have a very distinct flavor to it. Some maltiness. Little head. I enjoyed this beer on St. Patty's day, but it tasted a little watered down.

Got this bottle on a trip to Ireland. Possibly the best Irish ale I've had. A nice deep amber/red color and thin head. Awesome taste thourghout the whole thing. Really liked this beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very light malt aroma. Dark brown with a small head. Dry flavor with lots of carbonation, reminded me of a cider. One dimensional, not much there.

Deep red in color. Nice beer. Subtle malt flavor. Had it on tap, and it was fresh tasting. Bitter finish. Light hop. Good.
