COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium bodied beer is red in color and features a pronounced caramel malt flavor with just a slight hint of roastiness.

Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a very dark, opaque amber color. There was almost no head on it, and what there was was off white. No lacing either. Lighter but good aroma. Malts, faint fruit, minimal sweetness. The taste is good. Malts, biscuity, hint of dryness, very faint roasted malts. Nicely balanced.

What is this? Not exactly red, nor brown. Can a beer be grey? It’s hazy, disappearing head, not sure what it once looked like. Smell is very weird, some fruit and pepperiness. Taste was hard to describe lackluster. Peppery caramel with an off-putting taste. Not very good, especially for having it on draft at the brewhouse. This is their signature... back to the drawing board.

Nah, had potential, oh well, oddly plastic flavored, flat and lame, no really anything like the style says it should be

joebudzjoe (668) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft from Brass City Brew Fest. Pours amber with a minimal head. Not much to enjoy about this beer, malt and hop notes are dull and feels like something is missing in this beer.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Draft at the source. Hazy amber color, medium off white head. Aroma of caramel. Taste is slightly peppery caramel with a slight bitter finish. Plain.

mcox90 (1529) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 11, 2012
Sampled at Brew Woo. Pours deep reddish copper color with a thin off white head. Malty aroma with just the tiniest bit of hops. Sweet malty flavor, again, with just enough hop flavor to balance it out. Moderate bodied with a sweet finish. Nice, but no differant than a dozen other Irish Reds.

beerfest5 (1141) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 2, 2012
Typical Irish ale from the pour. White head that left a little lacing on the glass, large mouthfeel, large carbonation. Hints of vanilla and butter. Good session ale, but nothing special.

johnnnniee (2233) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 16, 2011
On tap at the source. Pours a deep copper color with a thinnish off white head that displays moderate retention and lace. Smells of caramel and chocolates malts with hints of earthy hops. Sweet aroma with just enough hop to keep it from cloying. Taste follows the smell to a T. Earthy hops fight to cut through a sweet caramel and chocolate malt onslaught. Medium body and level of carbonation, sweet mouthfeel. Decent Irish red if not a bit boring. Nothing objectionable, just nothing earthy shattering here either.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Pours reddish copper with a tan head. Smells of sweet caramel with some earthy hoppy notes. Tastes sweet and earthy with some tea on the back end. Easy drinking, well made session ale.
