tap at Ft Wayne Oktobeerfest 2013 - Pours amber and has a mild toasted caramel malt aroma. It tastes mainly of sweet, toasted malt. There’s little hops noticeable and a medium body. Decent for the style.

ContemplateBeer (1580) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Aroma: Rich caramel, nougat malts; a little butter; hops are a little spicy. Appearance: Hazy copper red pour with a foamy tan head that settles into a solid skin. Flavor: Matches the nose with a rich malt presence touched by a bit of butter; finish is slightly spicy and bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: A solid Irish red. Worth a go if you have a few extra bucks.

Reddish amber. Large frothy off-white head. Sticky lace and good retention. Sweet & malty. Toffee, caramel, touch of dark fruit. Creamy and clean. Nice body. Mild toasty finish. Very enjoyable. Tastes even better from the can than poured. Well done.

Pours a nice red as the name implies. Starts out well but looses its crispness as it warms. Nice toffee taste.

sudomorph (710) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
Pours a crystal clear, deep amber with a half finger, off-white, frothy head that thins to a film. Light bubbles can be seen rising to the surface. Very mild lacing. Aroma is faint with hints of bread and caramel. Taste is a slight bitter with a short bready, malty, aftertaste. Low-medium body and carbonation. Bubbly, slightly watery, clean mouth feel. Overall a very drinkable beer. Tasty and refreshing. Would buy again.
