12oz bottle, BOMC. Pours clear reddish amber with a thin off-white head. Pale malt, bread nose. Flavors mainly the same with light if any hops bitterness. Smooth texture, light bodied. Mild malt finish.

I didn’t realize Geary’s was marketing a Red Ale until I obtained a bottle at a local tasting. No indication when it was bottled but definitely tasted fresh. In fact, it tasted just as I would assume a solid Red Ale would taste. No complaints at all with this product - if I ever see it in a store, I’ll purchase it as I’d love to consume more than just this one bottle. Don’t know whether it’s distributed outside of Maine but hope such is the case..

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a handsome looking reddish amber color with a modest off-white head. Good toasted barley malt and distant chocolate character in the aroma. Earthy hops. Medium body.Same toasted sweetness in the flavor with a short-lasting dry finish. I’m not sure why so many Rate Beerians are panning this beer. I think it is a more than adequate representation of a tradition Red Ale.

Nice looking mahogany colored beer with a medium light tan head. Nose of caramel, plum, and sweet roasted grain. Flavor is less dramatic with a rather sweet caramel core overlaid with some acrid metallic hops. The after taste kills this for me.

From a bottle so certain aspects i have to guesstimate. Very nice malty up front taste with a bit of caramel. The taste does not linger though, it does not overpower you. Could drink this all night.

Beer of month club offering. Pours an amber color with no head at all. Mild nose of malt. Taste is of your basic red ale - some malt, caramel. It's decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer club offering. Color of burnt toffee w cream head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is balanced but something a bit unpleasant in there like socks and a bit of soap? Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep dark amber pour with white sticky foamy head. Had as part of a flight in their tiny tap room in Portland Maine. Malts and earthy. Blah

It pours a solid red color and gives the same color body. A nice half inch white foamy head appears and gently dies into the body within a minute. Lacing spider webs down the pint glass. The smell is malty with caramel notes up front and some corn and grains slightly in the back. The taste is the same as the smell and finishes with a dry caramel taste. The mouthfeel is light to medium with a dry aftertaste and nothing harsh on the tongue. I would say this is a mostly drinkable beer, low ABV helps. Overall, this is a semi-solid Irish Red that is satisfying.
