Drake (9433) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2013
12 ounce bottle from House of 1000 Beers, New Kensington. This beerís 50th rating. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of nutty notes, faint floral hops and toffeeish malts. The taste is nuts, chocolate, caramel malts, mild hops and a green banana-ish note. Medium bodied. Decent enough.

dmac (4336) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2015
12oz can from Homer321, thanks bro. Poured a mostly clear deep reddish/amber with a smaller to average sized foamy light beige head. Aroma of dusty malts, molasses, caramel malts, wort, celery and green leafy veggies. Body is a little flat and boring. Flavor drops off from the aroma, notes of old grains, dusty malts, very slight hint of sweet malts and old dry molasses.

SpringsLicker (3192) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Can Clear Reddish amber with an off-white head. Dusty malt aroma, a little hops. The flavor is lightly sweet. Not much going on here really.

falco242 (303) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Not a big fan of this one...malt and some sweet roast in there, but the palate isnít my favorite and it just lacks complexity. Not a bad beer, but just not one Iíll grab again.

b3shine (6068) - Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Can to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent amberish copper with very light caramel head. Smells malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, and a touch of toast. Tastes like it smells with a smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

JDBaker11058 (1411) - 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 (4322) - 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 (1638) - 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 (2321) - 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.

SG111 (299) - New York, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Canned. Dark red copper color, small tan head. Aroma is malty, sweet, Caramely. Flavor is lots of sweet rich caramel Malts with a slight hoppiness in the finish. Medium carbonation. Best red ale Iíve had. Shocked at how good this is.
