On tap at Fate. It pours with a clear copper body that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up some sweetness from apples and raisins and a sense of sort of earthy malts. The taste has some malt roastiness and malt earthiness as well as a little bit of spiced red apple and raisins. I’m not really feeling this one come together.
On tap at McFate, pours a clear copper golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out restrained toasted biscuity malt and a hint of dry caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malts and again a touch of dry caramel. Very malty and medium sweet on the finish. Decent. maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
Hazy deep amber red pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, bready and slight hops. Taste of malts, bread dough, yeast, caramel and faint hops. Light bodied, medium carbonation, nicely balanced. PartyFowle (954) - - APR 16, 2015
Draft. Tawny copper, slightly hazy. Burnt orange at the edges. Thin, wispy head of sandy tan. A swirl sends sweet stuff to the nose first: caramel, sweet cherry, apple. Milk chocolate and toasted bread make up the back end. Roasty, nutty flavor. Walnuts, baked apples, subtle chocolate, maybe light roast coffee beans. Tangy caramelized sugars. Roasted cocoa lingers. Medium body, mild carbonation. The best Irish red I’ve had -- it combines qualities of red and brown ales. Reynolds314 (3470) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 14, 2015
On draft at the source. Killians coming at ya hot. Amber reddish pour with off white head. Caramel, grain, and light apple with a dry grainy element. Average for what it is. snoworsummer (5961) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2015

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2015 great easy drinker. Very plain as it should be with some nuances of caramel and grains. Toasty and biscuity with some grassy hop. True to the style. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Tap at the brewpub. The look is reddish in color, a beige colored head, and a slight haze. The smell is toast, burnt, malt, ash, and ok. The taste is fruit, caramel, toast, and grain. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of light fruit, caramel, and toasted nuts. It’s a transparent dark amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some hints webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel and light fruit. The finish has light toasty notes with faint roasted nuts. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty standard Amber Ale. DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pint at the brewery. Mild roasted malt and slight baked apples highlight the moderate aroma with some caramel. Pours a nice semi-hazy deep auburn with a cream-colored head. A sweet nutty tone is the prominent flavor early with a moderate chewy toffee note, mild whole-grain toast, and a medium earthy hoppiness. Medium body, spiced long finish. Solid brew.
