"Far better it is to dare mighty things, than to take rank with those poor, timid spirits who know neither victory nor defeat." – Theodore Roosevelt

This Irish-style red ale is as sessionable as it is complex, with bready, caramel notes leading to a robust finish without the hop bitterness. A fantastic beer to enjoy with food.

Pairing suggestions: Sheep’s milk cheeses, pomme frittes, Neapolitan pizza, sautéed mushrooms with sherry-cream sauce, English trifle.

This was a nice one. Aroma of big caramel malt with some light grassy hop in the background. Taste follows, making this one very malt heavy with a ton of caramel, but a hop balance to bring the flavors together nicely. Awesome!

On tap at the brewpub a while back. Red with off-white head. Big on the caramel malts, malt character definitely the feature here, although there is great balance with the hops.

Scopey (15725) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Tap at Funky Buddha. It pours cloudy deep red, with a large beige head. The nose is dark fruit, leather and chocolate. The taste is caramel, red fruit, wood, leather, milk chocolate and spice, with some dryness in the finish. Medium body and prickly carbonation. Not bad, but nothing special.

Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Hazy brownish red. Has a bit of a fruity aroma. Sweetish. Slight caramel and also a little bit of tartness. Not in great form.

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Murky red brown. Thin cap. Aroma has fruity malt, the palate is slick and thin. The flavors are also very fruity (orchard fruit), and has an old world feel to it. The flattish palate makes it seem like a cask pour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 17, 2012
Draft: Poured a reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma was malty. Taste was of burnt malt and a bit sour, drying the tongue.

I had hoped for more excitement in this beer, but it did not yield anything particularly mind blowing. It was a decent beer for the most part, just not a memorable beer. It was a little nutty in flavor, but pretty subtle for the most part. There was a bit of carmel in this, but not enough to really jump out at you.

tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2012
Draft @ Funky Buddha. Pours cloudy red amber with a nice creamy dark beige head leaving lacing. Aroma is sweet malty fruity berry a bit sweet and caramel fudge. Flavor is very nice; good malty body berry fruity sweet not too bitter bready and nutty. Finishes sweet yet dryish and malty fruity.
