UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 Sampled on draft this beer poured a brown color with amber highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty with notes of toffee and cherry. The flavor was malty with notes of caramel, cherry and plum. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth. Solid.

On tap at the brewery. Clear amber body with a minimal white head. Hard to get much of aroma in this smokey room, but there is some caramel notes. Taste is toasted grain, bread, nutshells and an odd flavor (olive tapenade). Thin and dry with medium carbonation. Sledutah (7838) - Utah, USA - APR 25, 2013

I was really confused by this and the Scottish at the brewpub, but I'm now convinced that they had the taps reversed. I had already tasted the Scottish at a local beer fest and my notes for it more closely match the beer served to us as this). What they served to us as the Scottish has to be their Irish ale ... dark maroon with a cream-stout-like big white milky head. There's a smooth milky texture to go along with it. Sweet and malty. An OK beer. But the bartenders either have the beers confused, or they've made two beers coincidently completely out of style. dwyerpg (6410) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 18, 2006
Can’t say that I see why this one a gold medal at some tournament lately, but then again, it’s a pretty decent Irish ale. Too much malt, like most of them, but okay.

Deep copper/amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma of caramel and roasty malt along with a good bitter. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Pretty good beer. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Reddish pour, with an off-white head. Caramel, sweet malt, and light fruit notes. Pretty light and boring, I am not an Irish ale fan. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2007
20 oct 07, draft at BD Cafe & Casino, LV. Clear deep mahogany, nice off-white head. Aroma of malts. Flavor is very rich, Slightly smokey? Deep Fuggle bitterness. Medium-heavy bodied. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Clear and deep amber-red with intricate, lasting lace. Smooth carbonation was nice, but weight was kind of thin. Sweet notes of caramel, toffee, toast and a hint of sour milk. Bitterness was mild. Had a slight alcohol edge. Not too bad, but it didn’t seem to have a lot of personality. baraciisch (3376) - California, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Mahogany-reddish in color... Aroma is minimal malty sweetness, fairly weak aroma... Fairly sweet malt flavor, notes of caramel and toffee...alcohol is fairly prevalent, not the best red... Not very balanced and not the easiest to drink... Below average...
