Nice hop note on the nose. Nice hop taste that rolls on the tounge. Smooth bitter finsih that lingers. JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2007
On cask. Murky reddish-brown color with loose white head. Nice hop aroma with caramel malt background. Thin-bodied. Malty/biscuity taste with a mild hop finish. Very drinkable. Pretty good brew for the style. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2006
On tap at alehouse #1 - Pours bright amber with a creamy offwhite head. Aroma consists of pleasant floral aroma over grains and caramel malts. Flavor is surprisingly quite hoppy. Lots of floral notes, some orange as well, and a touch of grapefruit. Backed pretty well with caramel malts and some grains as well. Palate is medium bodied and rather creamy. Very drinkable and a nice compliment to the food. I was pleasantly surprised on this one. MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Dark copper body with a thin head. Nothing notable for the aroma, very plain. Flavor is smooth with a medium hop complex. Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2006 Amber with a small beige head. Malt aroma. Flavor of rye malt and strong hops. Long bitter finish.

Wasn’t expecting much from this one, but I got more than I had bargained for. This beer pours a pale reddish color with almost no head. Looks very watery. Taste is very hoppy with a good malty backing. A little thin and watery, but the hops are done very nicely, better than any other irish ale I have had.

Draft, comes a clear, reddish color with a small off-white head that diminished to a ring of bubbles. Sweet malty aroma, smooth sweet flavor with a crisp hop finish. Medium body and light carbonation. edden (925) - cow- lumbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2003

rich amber in color. no lace. spice, some hops (carameled hops) and malt to the taste. somewhat bitter aftertaste.
Well with St. Patrick's day nearly upon us, it was time to sample the new batch of Irish Rouge before the bar hoppers on that day drain the cask dry. This beer was an medium reddish amber color and formed an off white bubbly head that left circular lace as it subsided. A subtle aroma of malt and citrus with a slight grain element to it. The flavor was of malt and lightly of cirtrus. The finish had a slight bitterness to it, but nothing overpowering.
