Nicely balanced amber ale. Amber body with a thin white head that did not gave great retention. Aroma had some nice hop notes and a good caramel malt note to it. Caramel malts were mostly present in the flavor but there was a nice hop bitterness there to balance out the sweetness. Not great but nice.

daknole (10893) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Amber color. Malty, breadlike aroma. Flavor of malts, caramel, sweet grain. Beer has very little hops on the finish, but not a bad beer.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
Bright amber colour. Fruity, lightly toasty nose. Toasty palate with caramel accents. The two play off of each other, with the caramel winning out for a sweet finish.

Pours a deep monotonically copper with weak off white head. The aroma is on the light side emitting roasted malts, caramel, some biscuit and faint breadiness. There may also be the faintest hint of citrus hops too. The taste is kind of sweet malts and roasted malts mixed with caramel creating almost a sweet citrus flavor aided by mild citrus hop flavor and faint citrus hop bitterness, if there is any at all. It could just be faint malt astringency. Into the finish I get more mild caramel and sweet malts that fizzle out into the finish.

On tap. Pour is a clear reddiish amber. Faint aroma of a traditional Irish red. Medium bodied beer with a flavor profile that is in line with its style, even if it is pretty light. Not as good as the true Irish reds I have tried, but definitely better than the Killians they compare it to.

Draft... Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Sweet, grainy aroma and flavor with notes of spent grain, biscuit and toffee. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and feather-soft carbonation. Sweet, grainy finish.
