2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tried a 12 oz bottle of this. Bought it
at the QFC up here on the plateau. First
of all way overcarbonated. After that the aroma is not to bad. Flavor and especially the body is way to thin and
boring. The rating on this is overated.
Bland and acidic. Worth a try if your used to Macrobrews.

This is probably my Favorite beer! It's easy to drink and I love the roasted flavor in it. I have been getting this for a while now, I really need to try more Red Ales.

Draft in Ayre, MA. Creamy white head on charcoal brown. Soft sweet malt aroma. Smooth body, raisins and sweet fruity malt. Solid. Not a ton going on. Feels a bit under attenuated.

Draft pour pint at the Wilde Rover. Pours a dark brown color with a fizzy bubble head. Seemed firing to rate this for the first time in am Irish pub, though I would prefer to be across the pond and doing it right. I’ll pretend for now. Creamy body with a nutty malt flavor. Has little flavor, but not bad. Not bad, but not really that good either.

Classic red. For me it isnt fantastic. It is quite good. Surely in stile (it is guinness ) beauty to see, with aroma of bread and spicy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aromas .are mostly bready malt. Hop presence is very mild and nondescript.
Color is a dark reddish-brown, with a fairly large off-white head which dissipates fairly quickly.
Taste is fairly sweet with just a mild bitterness.
Body is medium; carbonation is average; texture is slightly thin. Finish is medium, bready with just a slight bitterness.
Overall this is a pretty unremarkable beer; mild and one dimensional.

This is a good example of an Irish Red Ale, I found the flavor to be rich and full of malt and some fruit. It also has a nice copper color. I would drink this again.
