ARH (831) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aromas are not very strong on this one, but what does appear is a cereal and grainy note with a faint caramel sweetness and an abundant damp and leather aroma. It’s a dark, but clear, amber-orange color (maybe more brown than orange) with a big white-ish, puffy head. When it reduces, it gets a swiss-cheese look to it. The head hangs around for a while until it reduces to a soda-fizz looking ring, but it leaves a good amount of puffy lace down the glass. The taste is a flat, medium-light sweetness and light bitterness. The mouth is light bodied (maybe medium bodied), thin texture, with lots of effervescent, fizzy carbonation. There’s a flat citrus flavor in the mouth with a bit of nut flavor and a light caramel. There seems to be an underlying rye, or just generally grainy, flavor throughout. It finishes with a light toasty note and some grassiness. The aftertaste is mostly clean with a rye and cereal flavor that doesn’t linger very long.

lukedarock (245) - Howell, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2014

lusikka (7119) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2014
500 ml can. Thanks E!
Pours a copper colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, some mild perfume notes and flowers. Very mild flavour of caramel, biscuit, weak bitterness, cardboard and hay. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Boring.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2014
Some malty caramel flavours with a hint of roasted nuts. Bland overall, hence a high drinkability factor. Nice alternative to a Newcastle perhaps.

Tricker (332) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Bière rousse de 4.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat sucré et un petit col au versement. Elle possède un goût âcre en bouche avec un arrière-goût de réglisse noire. Elle possède une amertume en bouche, du même type qu’une bière commerciale. Très bonne !

Squizzle (174) - Idaho, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Decently good smooth beer. Had it in bottles but I bet it would be better on tap. Not bad for the price at good ol’ Costco.

A light, moderately carbonated red Irish ale. Nice white foamy head, sweet, light bodied taste and a dry finish. The aroma is unremarkable.
