tap and nitro-pretty much the same, other than the nitro being a little more dry on the finish.
pours a copper hue with good lacing and head retention. caramel malt and some nice irish like dryness/earthyness. some good apple notes in the finish, like a good irish dry red ale. body is fluffy and has a good body. probably their best beer. FlacoAlto (4220) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Nitro-Tap ratingturbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUN 7, 2005
This has a bit more head than the standard tap, but of course the same color. Again there is no real aroma to speak of. The taste is perhaps a bit smoother, and there is a bit of a caramel note here as well as a bit of currant. There is a hint of bitterness in the finish. I prefer this slightly to the draft version, but not by much.
Regular Tap rating
This beer is a full copper color and it is quite clear as well. The aroma is quite subtle and I can barely pick any components out. There are no real hop notes here. The beer is thin and crisp with subtle malt notes. I get some fruitiness with notes of strawberry and currants, a hint of apple as well. Again this is quite lame, though with no off flavors.
Red amber with a good head.
Aroma was sweet malt with a rather bland malty flavor. Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Sweet malty aroma. Dark gold body. Sweet carmel flavor to it. Was and enjoyable beer just not bad not that you would want to just say hey you have to have this one. Also had the Nitro Red on the sampler. Had the same malty aroma. Flavor was bland. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 10, 2003
This beer has 2 varieties: Regular draft or Nitro draft. There is a world of difference between the two. I'll rate the regular: It's a plain, bland red ale. The nitro on the other hand is a much smoother, drinkable beer.
