Pours a light copper color with a yellow tinge to it. Aroma is of caramel mixed with toast. Taste is a bit creamy but very tasty. A complex beer with a slight sweetness to it. An easy drinking beer that I would have again. A good representation of the Irish Red style.

Generally Irish Reds are not my favorite, but this is beer is great. Big chocolate and slightly burnt toast nose. Nice malty flavor with a clean, dry finish. Very drinkable and I would love to have more than one.

Nice malty beer with hints of red in the color. Close to style and easy drinking. Not spectacular bur a good table beer.

Sweet and malty. Dark red in color and very smooth. No discernible off flavors, and very little bitterness in the finish. THis one is all about the barley. Well done, TAPS.

Sampled on tap at Taps on 7/10/2010 from a 2 oz sampler. This Irish Ale pours a light copper amber color. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel and biscuit, with a touch of caramel and peat. A medium bodied Irish Ale. The malts are caramel and fruity. The hops are herbal. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Nice malty finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 15, 2010
On tap. Pours with a clear amber body and a small tan head. Aroma reminds me of irish whiskey for some reason, light fruit notes, dry and possibly burnt caramel. Taste is fruity, grainy, dry, diacetyl. Slick mouthfeel, medium fizz. My least favorite Taps beer that I have tried to date.

A: The pour is a medium to dark amber color with with an off-white head on top. S: The aromas are pretty standard for a red ale: sweet caramel and toasted, biscuity malts. There isn’t much in the way of hop aroma. T: The nose led me to believe this would be a pretty decent (though not amazing) red ale. However, I was gravely disappointed. The flavor had some initial sweet, caramel maltiness followed by a very off flavor that I can only describe as olives. M: The body is medium and the carbonation is quite lively. D: The off, olive flavor really ruins this beer. I was really glad I only got a taster glass rather than a full pint of this beer.
