Growler from Gettysburg pours medium amber with red highlights. Creamy tanish head quickly forms a ring. Toffee, butter and malty breadiness in the aroma. Medium body with a slight grassy hop bitterness and big malty body. A glass of grain! Pine in there too. Quite sessionable. A bit of a surprise from them.

On tap. Deep red color with a thick tan head. Very pleasant aroma of toasted nuts. Clean finish with caramel and toffee flavors with just a hint of hoppiness. Similar to Jolly Scot but much more flavorful. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2006
on tap-pours an offwhite head that laces with amber color. Aroma is mild malt, slight hops. Taste is well balanced mild malt, sweet. Slight hops. OK carbonation. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 8, 2017
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a dark copper/almost red color with a finger’s worth of white foaminess. Sly lacing.
The aroma has some toast, herbal qualities, caramel/toffee malts and a slight bready crispness.
The flavor leaned towards the combination of those previously mentioned aromas in a sweet sort of way. Nice herbal to nutty to caramel aftertaste with a subsiding finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation and the ABV felt fine.
Overall, decent Irish red ale that I could see myself having again. BvilleBronc (85) - Biglerville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Growler poured into pilsner glass. More dark than red in color with a significant tannish head. Suprised by aroma of bittering hops. Taste is very balanced with a strong malt back and backend of the bittering hops. Nicely done for a seasonable, nothing over the top and very sessionable.

On tap, Harrisburg location. Pours a dark copper with a reddish tinge under a small creamy white head of decent retention. Aroma is sweet caramel malts under a light floral hoppiness. Flavor is a little thin, grassy hops up front with a crackery crystal malt base. Finish is lightly fruity. Mouthfeel is light bodied with fizzy active carbonation. A decent session brew, nothing out of the ordinary, but a decent 11 am beer. DocLock (10653) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2006

I had this over the summer when I first went to thier abbey bar upstairs. Celtic red was a nice lgiiht bodied amber ale, although I couldtn see anything resembling a dubble as it is listed here- which Im assuming is a mistake. Mostly jsut a plain amber wiht some sweet caramel malts and light bitterness. Easy drinking. hopdog (12437) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2008
On tap. Poured a medium and clear amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, light nuttiness, and lighlty earthy. Tastes of caramel with some light citrus. Light lacing left on the glass.
