A decent selection. Quite hoppy, mild malts and other not so distinct flavors make this one quite complex. Quiet finish. Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 16, 2004
One of the best beers there is! Another beer I wish was brewed/available longer, but it is always a special treat for the spring. Nice color, pleasant odor, and it is one of the tastiest ales you’ll have. Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Courtesy of MJames, couldn’t get this in my home town. Came via Oklahoma. Big head out of the bottle. Eggshell, lacing. Citrusy, hoppy and smooth. Definite warming effect while consuming. Very Nice beer. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 6, 2004

Nice amber body and thin soapy off-white head. Toasty malt aroma and mild woody hops. Malty flavor with some mild acidity that rounds it out nicely. Medium body. A decent Irish Ale. Thanks to TannerTavernboys for this. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2004
Disclaimer, I have drank close to 60 bottles of this beer before RB: I'm still love the pour of this beer, nice deep copper hue with long lasting beige head and excellent head, just like I remembered. The aroma hints of toasted caramel malts with toffee tones, biscuit and bready, aromatic and grassy hops, light allspice, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts malty sweet with a liberal notes of wildflowers and hayfield. Undertones of mild pear, traditional bittering hops, and caramel. The finish display a nutty, grassy, and a sublime grapefruit tone. The mouthfeel is above average for style, smooth and creamy, nice! You would be hard pressed to find a better American made Irish ale styled beer. Very recommended. MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - APR 11, 2004
Whaleman 2004: Pours reddish amber with a thin head. Light malt aroma. Nicely balanced malt and hops. A good beer. Very enjoyable. LagerLove (65) - Clinton, Missouri, USA - FEB 28, 2004
A pretty good beer with a very hoppy flavor. I enjoyed the dark red body and its slight bitterness.
