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. drowland (8955) - 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. drfabulous (8481) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 1, 2015
Draught at Ethereal. Nice hoppy light body some caramel. Thought that this stood out on draught. radagast83 (8301) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
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.

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. JaBier (8178) - 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. FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2006
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. blankboy (7788) - 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.

Bottle, amber pour with off white medium head. Pretty good lacing patterns. Notes were hops, crackers or bready malt, caramel, and some more malt. Light to medium in body. This one isn’t my style.
