An Irish-style red ale with the strength of an English strong ale. Full-bodied, malty and alcoholic. Not too hoppy in order to emphasize the complex malt flavor and fruity aroma. The ruby red color hints at its rich caramel maltiness.

Maltyballz (1) - - AUG 19, 2016 does not count
Beautiful white flesh head, slight taste of shanty underpants, appears long and thick with girth, the aroma was that of baked fromunda cheese, the palate was unbelievably smooth yet ridged, overall, orgasmic.

phaleslu (9569) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Draft in a flight at BJís-Florence. Pours a clear orange color with a small off-white head that settles into an island of film, ring around the glass, and some lace. Itís like the Oasis, but with a bigger malt character - caramel and sweet malts, leaves, grass, sugars, and a hint of metallic notes. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, earthy mouthfeel. Again, like the Oasis, bland and forgettable.

Travlr (21974) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Can sample. Clear amber color, light tan head. Aroma of toasted biscuit. Taste is caramel and cookie dough. Decent.

JStax (5624) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Draft pour. The beer is a hazed copper with a white head of foam. The aroma is faint and hard to detect. I get some doughy nuances and subtle grassy notes in the taste. Subtle sweetness. Medium body and medium to high carbonation.

HourGlass13 (664) - North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2016
Pours a clear reddish amber color, with a thin white head. The aroma is slight sweet, caramel, vanilla, and toasty malt. The flavor is caramel and minimal toasted malt. You can feel the alcohol burn. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a slightly sticky finish.

freekyp (1976) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2016
A middling clean malty red. Pours pretty gingerhead with a slight ring of white head. Very clean with forward caramel malts. Hides its ample alcohol well, with the fuel hitting the engine long after the swallow, evidenced by a welling warmness after a few swigs. Well done.
