SanfordBrewer (1460) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Translucent ruby with a lasting beige head. Silky medium-full body with moderately high carbonation.

Aroma: rich caramel and roast, sweet bready malt.

Taste: caramel, bready malt, chocolate, tobacco hops, and a touch of roast in the finish.

Great food beer. A bit too rich to be true to style, but a very good beer. Great layered complexity, and each element is deptly balanced.

JDBaker11058 (1773) - 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.

Tampa Bay Brew Bus Rollin Dirty Red Ale has a medium, cream-colored head, a hazy, red-brown appearance, some streaming bubbles, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread crust, and the flavor is similar, with a nice and measured hop bitterness from the middle-to-end of the sip. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Tampa Bay Brew Bus Rollin Dirty Red Ale finishes mostly dry, smooth, mellow, interesting, and delicious. Overall, this is a really enjoyable beer. Iím glad I was able to try it. RJT

Damico (3119) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours amber red somewhat clear with a white head. The aroma and flavor bring clean sweet and crispy malts characteristic of the style. There are nutty caramel notes. The body is clean and the brew goes down smoothly. This is a very sessionable beer from a city that has been bringing awesome beers the pas few years.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2013
Bottle... Clear, deep, dark, ruby ale with a small, fizzy, taupe head. The aroma is just a simple marriage of my favorite things - chocolate and caramel malts with a light splash of coffee. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with lazy carbonation. The flavor mirrors the nose - malty milk chocolate and caramel with a suggestion of coffee and the perfect level of unassuming hop bitterness to prevent cloying. Finishes lightly sweet and nourishing. The perfect malty brew to sip on all day - especially when you’re not the one doing the driving. -Fish!

Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with lazy carbonation. The flavor mirrors the nose - malty milk chocolate and caramel with a suggestion of coffee and the perfect level of unassuming hop bitterness to prevent cloying. Finishes lightly sweet and nourishing. The perfect malty brew to sip on all day - especially when youíre not the one doing the driving. I imagine drinking this straight from the bottle would be plenty enjoyable and preferable to drinking from a glass while rolliní dirty over those famous Tampa and St. Petersburg potholes.

decaturstevo (5743) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Deep amber almost brown pour with creamy tan head and lace. Aroma is nice caramel malt and floral hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malt and medium chocolate. A touch of earthy hops. Slight bitter finish. A lot of flavor and body from a 5% beer.

markwise (5085) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Sampled from the Tampa Bay Brew Bus. Pours a medium amber brown with a tan head. Nose is a hefty dose of malt with caramel and toffee, followed by a hint of earthy, grassy bitterness. Flavor is similar- caramel and toffee malt up front with a hint of maple and smoke followed quickly by earthy hops. Finish is some hops with the remembrance of malt. Light to medium in body and although the bottle does not say the ABV, if this is sessionable it would be killer, if it isnít then it sure acts like it is a session beer.

jnkor (352) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Aroma is malty but dry. Malt sweetness dominates. Color is a brown/red with a little white head. Looks slightly oily on top. Taste is a strong toasted malt, with a little bit of wheat finish. Frothy and full, carrying the taste. Reminds me of a brown ale in the dryness.

Ibrew2or3 (7960) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
Big thanks to markwise for this. 12oz bottle pours an amber color with tan head. The aroma has spicy hop notes, biscuit malts and some roasted malts as well. It seems a little bright and almost tart. The taste has some full malty biscuit to roasted malts going on as well as yeasty notes to a near spicy cedar wood sensation. Interesting brew and goes great with a bus ride.
