Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent brownish-orange with sticky, foamy white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of roasted malt with some hop notes. Good on the palate. Not bad.

Simple but easy to drink. Pours amber with decent head and lacing. Light barley bitterness and some tin. Crisp finish. Easy to drink.

drowland (8550) - Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2013
2/25/13. 12oz bottle thanks to Tibeerious and aobecksy! Thanks for the tick! Clear amber red pour with a light khaki head that fades to a ring but sticks. Mild lacing. Light caramel with a hint of chocolate and bread in the aroma. Mild malty flavor as well with caramel and bread, a hint of chocolate, and just a dose of hop character to dry the finish a touch. Refreshing and tasty.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark amber color with a small, off-white head. Aroma was some grain notes, slight roasted notes, with some caramel notes. Flavor was pretty malty, with some caramel, and some roast notes. Okay.

JaBier (7721) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2009
On tap at the Winking Lizard. Pours a clear reddish amber with a thin white head. Malty aroma with some bready yeast and hop. Sweet malt flavor with some cherry, caramel and a nice hop finish that is atypical to this style. Me likey.

Keg @ Sedona. Rich Amber with a small head. Nose is rich and malty. Loads of caramel and red apple. Taste is pretty fruity and unexpectedly vibrant. Raspberry ripple, apples. Light nuttiness. Medium body, soft carb.

Draught at Ethereal. Nice hoppy light body some caramel. Thought that this stood out on draught.

blankboy (7637) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear amber-orange with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel malt and not much else -- a hint of yeast, fruit and hops in there. It’s good but I like more hops and less caramel in my Ales.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2010 Until now I have never been impressed by an Irish Red. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright reddish caramel color with a small yellow-white head that fades quickly. The aroma is sour tangy malts. The flavor is sour tangy malts with a light apple and pear element and a light zesty malt undertone. The beer is smooth and eminently drinkable. Definitely a better beer than the sum of it’s parts.

Bottled. Poured a clear, lighter shade of orange with a semi-well-retained cap of creamy off-white head. Nose was quite pleasant, with toasty caramel, leafy/floral hoppage, nuttiness, and light fruits (maybe some pear). Sticky caramel, apples, pears, and a woodsy feel to the flavor... just a hint of citrus sourness... caramel and alcohol became a tad biting on the back of the palate as this warmed. Overall very drinkable and solid brew.
