Emeister84 (2161) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Aromas of caramelized malts and subtle hops. Clear orange-red with a decently retaining white head. Well balanced, simple, not too dimensional. Smooth and easy to drink. Medium bodied.

On tap at the Merrifield location. Poured a dark copper-ruby red color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma was notes of light malts, some caramel notes. Flavor was light, clean sweet caramel malts, touch toast at the end. Light, easy to drink.

Draft. Served ice cold. I mean it had little ice chips floating in it. Once it thawed, the beer smelled like caramel and tasted similar with a background of milk chocolate. OK.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Foamy white head and clear, light amber color. Caramel malt character. Medium acidity and light piney hop presence. An average and unexciting Irish Ale.

A regular red irish ale. Not spectacular. a bit on the malty side with a lightly hop finish.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Red-orange body with a creamy light tan head. Vrey nice glass lacing. Straight up, almost neutral, malt aroma. The flavor is also very neutral. Malt is the story with very little in the way of hops. Light watery body. (Served WAY too cold. Frosted glasses are a sin!)
