COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

Good stuff! It has a caramel malt smell and taste. It has a sweet flavor. It is a reddish color, with a white head. It’s a complex finish sweet to hopppy. It’s another fine O’Haras product.

ebrowner88 (123) - Rice, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2008
Had on tap in Philly. Nice head that gives way to a faint lacing. Slightly malty and floral on the nose. A nice carmel and pineapple taste the ends with just the right amound of hoppy dry finish. A great session beer and one of the better in this style.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2008
Fresh leafy hops nose, some caramel and candied malt, clear ruby, with a small tight toffee head, nice lace. Taste is caramel, treacle, malt, hops and a good nuttiness as well. Well balanced, light bodied, a fine toffee creaminess, dry, bitter finish. Good.

drpimento (3450) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Kind of like this beer. Poured with a nice head which mostly dissapated and some lace. Good reddish amber color. Mild malty and roasty aroma with little hops. Perhaps a little fizzy in the mouth which also leads to a sharpness on the tongue. Still, it’s not overly sweet and is drinkable. It gets even better as it warms a bit. Having a draft of this in Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wis.

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2008
pours a dark caramel color with a one finger fluffy cream colored head. aroma is toasted malt and a touch of hops and nuts with a little dark fruit. has a light to medium body with good lacing and carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma with dust. i will pass.

alobar (3708) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Reddish brown color with no head. Not much aroma. Some hops, but not much better. A decent Irish Red-not much to brag about, but nothing to offend either.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2008
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is smoky and a little malty with some earthen notes. Flavor is a little sour at the start with flavors of boiled vegetables, stale biscuits, and some dampness. Metallic finish. Not very good.

thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2008
Very nutty and smokey aroma, with a dark red color. Bitter smokey flavor. I really enjoy this beer. I don’t know what it is, but I like drinking it.
