Plovmand (6589) - Helsinge, - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle at home. Thanks Hopscotch. Gusher. Pours brown with a huge beige head. The aroma is highly malty with some fruity and hoppy notes. Bit acidic touch. The flavour is fruity and biscuitty malty with light hops. Some tart berries in the finish.

JDBaker11058 (1354) - Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Appearance: attractive amber red, with a finger of creamy light tan head and some persistent lacing. Aroma: caramel, toffee, general maltiness. Taste: sweet toffee, light caramel, hint of vanilla, some brown sugar, brown toast. Finish: lasting sweetness, with that smooth toffee note lingering, and a bit of bready malt note as well ; really nice palate is light enough to keep the sweetness from being too strong. Notes: This is a one-note beer, but that one note is very, very, very good. Iíve been on a lasting quest for a truly awesome Irish Red, and this has everything Iím looking for. Wish I had grabbed more than a single can. 12 oz can purchased from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Location: 12 oz can from Syosset Beverage, 11/5/14

Aroma: The nose is heavy sweet/caramel, with some underlying earthy notes as well
Appearance: This one pours a clear orange-brown color with a sheeting beige head and mid lace
Flavor: Heavy sweet taste as well, fairly one-dimensional caramel, light roast and light bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a cloying feel, and an off finish on the mouth
Overall Impression: Nope, this canít have been what they were going for. This thing just gets way too cloying for anyoneís good. Next time, remind me to pass...

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Malty irish red ale with light caramel sweetness and minimal hop bitterness. The kind of beer you get people into beer with, in the best way possible. In an alternate universe this beer is clamored for like Fat Tire once was.

BREWMUSKCLES (2299) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2014
it is a nice Irish style amber. smooth with a light malt and hop in the foam and a bit of caramel to enhance the smoothness. finishes again beery and i like the brown hue in the brew, moderate mouthfeel not at all annoying.

artmcd8 (1777) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Can to tasting glass. Reddish brown clear pour. Aromas of herbs, caramel, earth. Taste I fairly roasty for the style. Sweet but clean. Nothing terrible but nothing outstanding.

Had this at the 2014 RB Pittsburgh Summer Gathering at Horny Develís place. Actually it was after the equinox at the beginning of fall, but DILLIGAF. Big thanks to James & Michelle for hosting such a nice spread of quality beers and for this particular beer a GIANT thanks goes out to artmcd8. Nice gentle yeasty aroma. Friendly big head. Poured from a can. Barely any co2 on the palate. Has some body to it. No real ill ale attributes. Overall, I found this quite acceptable. Does have a tad of saddle in there on the finish. Yes, pretty good darker beer experience.

wedgie9 (2071) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Tasted on 9/24/14 from a 12oz can received as an extra in a trade. Pours a clear burnt umber with an average white head that leaves average lace, with some sticking to the inside of the glass. The nose is malty dark bread with just a hint of herbal hops. The flavor is the same bread malt and somewhat peppery herbal hops with just the lightest hint of smoke. The body is just under medium with lively carbonation, and a medium bread malt and very light hint of smoke finish.
