3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Dark brown, nearly black. This beer is much darker than more common example of an Irish Red. Slightly boring albeit familiar. Aromas of nuts and roasted malts. Hardly any hop aroma that’s noticeable. Very smooth, malty, and roasted taste. Goes down well. A great finish with a crisp departure from the palate. Thinner than you’d expect from the appearance and smell, but overall smooth and well carbonated. A great beer. Fantastic Irish session beer. The best way I can describe it would be the Bud Light to Guinness’ Bud Heavy. Granted, they aren’t the same style, but you get my point.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: lots of malt and vanilla; Appearance: clear, dark amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: malt that turns a bit overdone as temp rises; Palate: medium body with long, sweet finish; Overall: okay but ultimately forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière rousse, foncée, pétillante, belle mousse. Nez plutôt casual de caramel. En bouche, la texture est bonne, le malt apporte des notes caramel sans trop d’originalité mais tout de même agréable. Rousse mainstream plutôt agréable. Cheers !

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark brown color with a strong amount of subtle activity. Creamy light brown 2 finger sparkling head, lasting around 15 to 20 minutes, with some strong legs.
Aroma of faint ginger bread. Flavors of caramel, faint molasses, a little spicy and syrupy. Bready and highly sugary, but still with a nice sharpness.
Slick smooth light to medium body with a nice carbonation intensity. Light to medium strength finish with a perfectly spiced feel and a hint of peppercorn and ginger.
Overall a very good quality craft having delicious flavors and great freshness. Well balanced and intensified. Would drink this all day long.
