From the 650 ml. bottle marked Fall 2013, no. 1434. It pours a cloudy medium amber with a quick head that fizzles. On the nose I get butter and caramel malts as well as a mild spiciness but little in the way of hops. Not off-putting. The body is medium. The taste is upfront sweet with many Belgian esters and a low to moderate bitterness at the end. But there is also something rather cardboard-like going on. Still, I found it to be relatively easy to drink and enjoy.

pours cloudy copper with a decent light beige-orange head, some retention and lacing. belgian fruity malts - sweet, shy rustic grains, toastiness and dry caramel, candies, very yeasty - some pepper, some metal, orange, cloying plain sugars. bright to average carbonation, medium body - tad heavy, short peppery-spicy finish.

Brune aux reflets rougeâtres avec une fine mousse crème. Nez de miel. En bouche, des notes de caramel dominent sur un fond d’alcool. Un peu de fruits rouges surgissent en rappel.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer has a mild haze and appears orange hued. The head is white and thin, fading rapidly. The aroma is odd, with fruit, funk, malt, and a generally odd scent. The flavor isn’t particularly enjoyable either. This beer is just a bit off. Low carbonation. Not a repeat.

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.
