blankboy (7425) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a murky copper with an average size diminishing off-white head. Mild aroma of grain, fruit and a bit of sourness -- not great. Watery flavour of caramel malt and yeast along with some fruit and a short light bitter finish. Average bodied. Most Red Ales and Irish Ales are quite dull and this is no exception.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
February 15, 2011. Shared by garthicus with blankboy and me. 500ml bottle. Hazy copper with an average diminishing frothy off-white head. Lovely fruity aroma, yeasty and "Belgian" - smells a lot like a baked alaska, quite floral - almost 8/10! Taste is a tad harsh - apple and appleseed, young cheap chablis - green, bitter, some alcohol. Slick, astringent, weakly carbonated and light-bodied, finishes with some back-palate bitterness and dry acidity. Lovely aroma, a bit of a let-down afterward.

reebtogi (5940) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
500ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger off-white head that leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and citrus with some other light fruits. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a nice brew that tastes good and has a nice balance to it.

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle ala Curt. Thanks! Copper color with a few chunks adrift in the flow of bubbles. Moderate taupe colored head. Light dough and flour scents. Light caramel and a mild bitterness late. Quite fizzy and light. Very much an Irish Red, much akin to the American Amber. 5/11

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle @ Bierhaus, Cork. Murky, a bit muddled, coppery-red. Bright fruity aroma is apples, pears, red plums. Hop flowers in the background. Quite a thick, lightly syrupy character. Lots of malt sugars. Lively carbo. Juicy, fruity, and good balance.

culchiem (3689) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2011
Bottle. Brownish orange with a thin head. Aroma is a bit spicy with caramel malts. Flavour is very tasty, malty caramel, almost treacle with a dry tart finish. Low carbonation.

500ml brown bottle. Colour is orange, hazy. Lots of white head with lots of sticky lace. Aroma - caramel with citrus and floral hints. Taste - citrus, caramel, cardboard, minerals, quite dry. Light in body. Overall a decent looking brew, but falls short in flavour and finish. Disappointing. Would not drink again.

Bottle, medium long lasting creamy head, a little hazy dark red to very light brown colour, malty cakey barnyard aroma wit hjust a hint of vanila, biscuity malty flavour with some caramel a light herbal bitterness and a pleasant bready sourness. Quite nice and quite easy to drink.
