2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shared by emacgee. Muddy orange copper with no head, light off white lace. Nose of faint muddled red fruit, cereal grains, dirty basement. Flavor is quite awful. More dirty basement, grain, soy, really hard to drink. Dump.

Thanks djrn. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a one finger sandy tan head. Nose is acidic and lightly grainy, notes of cherry skin and cereal grain. Kind of slick... Grainy with a soy saucy character. Weird esters and acidity in there. Light bodied and slick on the finish. meeeehhhhhh

Very nice drinkable beer whatever that means. To me, all beers are drinkable. Anyway, this one starts with a small head over an amber body with a red tint. The aroma was malty sweet with a hint of the hop to come. The flavor was so very well balanced between the two, you could alternate between sweet and bitter. the finish was dry with a lingering after taste. Nicely done.

s the name suggests, these ales are amber to deep red in color (a result of the small amount of roasted barley used in the brewing process). They have an aroma of caramel and butter or toffee. Red Irish Ales are sweet and well-rounded, with flavors of toasted malt and roasted grain.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 4/27/12, Batch 1, Bottled Jan 2012
Aroma: The nose has some sweet malts, caramel, bread, Belgian yeast, earth, and hints of fruit
Appearance: It pours a murky looking orange-brown color with a beige head, and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste mostly sweet, with similar components to the nose, and a latter earthy spice feel
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a soft carbonation, some stickiness, and a fairly lengthy finish
I thought this was a decent one. It wasnít exactly an extremely Belgian offering, but there were some clearly Belgian components. Thus far, this was my favorite thing Iíve tried from White Birch (but that isnít a huge compliment).

22 oz bottle, purchased @ Smileyís, Dover, NH. Used shaker glass. Amber color. Light retention. Nose of Belgian yeast and caramel malt. The relationship between the yeast and the malt mingles real well. Taste balances nice between sweet and hoppy. Bread and some Earthy hop notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I didnít know what to expect from this one, decent. Some good drinkability.

Thanks to aapp for sending this bottle out my way. Served in a Mikasa tulip.
Pour a hazy light copper with a thin white head and some spotty lacing. The nose has some faint earth and light bread. The flavor is mildly malty with a bit of earth. Grain and bread crust. Nothing really coming from the yeast. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not terribly impressive, unfortunately.
