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.

A dark beautiful frothy amber brew. Nice fruit-nut aroma. Flavor is rich and nutty, almost smoky, but very smooth drinking. Not overly sweet. Very well balanced. Somewhat tart finish. I really like this one. By far the best White Birch brew I’ve tried yet!

Pours a cloudy murky reddish brown with a one finger bubbly beige head that slowly recedes. Smells of caramel, brown sugar and biscuit with a hint of fruit and spice. Taste is rich and malty with lots of caramel sugar and dark fruits. Hints of pepper and spice round out the taste. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation, sweet almost sticky mouthfeel. I enjoyed this one. It really wasn’t what I was expecting, but it is a tasty beer.

A style I really like. A hoppy amber beer. Very clean well made, I’m just a big had of strong american hops with a good malt background

22 oz bottle, purchased @ Smiley’s, 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 didn’t know what to expect from this one, decent. Some good drinkability.

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.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a deep dark amber colored body yielding a nice foamy very level off-white head that lasted for a good minute before gently dieing into the body. The body was too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. Typical sediment of a saison at the bottom of my chalice. The smell had some dark fruits up front with the typical farmhouse yeast with the added hay and spices. The taste was dry with the same smells coming out and bringing in some plums and grains. The palate was about a medium with some sharpness on the tongue, sessionable. Overall, when I first had this I actually wasn’t really into saisons, but since this isn’t as bad some others I’ve had, I will say this, I’d have this one again.

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.
