Undated single bottle. Inconspicuous but nice, with a little hoppy bite and faint malt. Needs to be much more for a red ale.

Not bad. Pours a slightly cloudy red. Not much in the aroma category; some malt. Palate and taste are decent. A little sweetness in there with a touch of spice. Finishes smooth.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Subpar in virtually every catagory. Nose was pallid. Insipid caramel and toffee flavors...perhaps with some stale touches. No hoppiness to pull this one out of the dumper for me. Nothing horrible...but really really boring.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Lightly hazed amber color with a smallish off white head. Dull malt aromas with a hint of floral hops. No objectionable just plain and boring. Light sweet caramel and mild malt flavors. Some light nut flavors. Just saw this was a irish ale, I would have never guessed. Another american amber I would have wagered. Still to me most ambers are just that, an amber.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle - nice sweet malt aroma mixed with spicy, noble hops. Beautiful amber body with a beige head - nice retention. Fairly hoppy at the start - again the spicy hops. I was really hoping that it would sweeten as I went, but it didn’t. That is pretty odd for an amber. Not great.

Poured a clear amber, with small head. Nose was sour-sweet, malts. The taste was a bit burnt and caramel. LOts of malts to this one. OK, Thanks to Degarth

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Plesant beery aroma. Some caramel/malt sweetness, but some hops in there too. Reddish brown color with a pinky thick head. Strong malt profile. Tastes very German to me. Schwarzbierish in fact. One dimensional flavor palate, but nothing off putting about it.

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Aroma is sweet caramel malt and some yeast but not very hoppy. The Appearance is copper brown with lots of particulates. The flavor is both good and bad. It has some sweet caramel malt taste but also a paper taste. The hops are light. Palate is average and the aftertaste is like sweet carrots.

jhliesen (755) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Bottle--pour a medium head that dissipated quickly. The color was orange to amber, had some hoppy taste. Too carbonated for me.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2005
12 oz clear amber with a smallish head. Smells like a malty amber with sweet malts and some floral hoppiness. Taste has some mellow smokiness to it but thats quickly covered with some sweet barley flavors. Body is thin with a way too light carbonation.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2005
Bottle: Aroma of caramel and light hops. Pours a very dark transparent amber with an off-white head that quickly diminishes. Light initial caramel malty is quickly overtaken by a nutty and lightly hoppy finish. A little on the thin side.
