Slightly hazy reddish color with a small off-white head. While malty this also has a good hop aroma and bite, tending to be English and grassy. A good example of a standard style. allfreej (567) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 13, 2013
On tap at Jackie O's.
Reddish copper pour with a persistent off white head.
Aroma is caramel malt, toffee.
Flavor is malty caramel, toffee, with a nice hoppy finish.
A good Irish Red, hoppier than some, which was nice.

Sample at The Daily Growler. Pours a slightly murky brownish-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and earthy malt. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, hops and fruit. The fruit is sweet to the point that it is reminiscent ot Fruity Pebbles. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a somewhat cloudy amber with off-white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and malty with notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Decent beer. Sheerbrewing (117) - Athens-Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Growler from pubside pours a deep reddish brown with medium off white head. Aroma is bright and sweetly malty with some clean I wanna say copper yeast character, right on with what I think of fir this style. Flavor is very similar to aroma nice hop bitterness up from followed by sweet malts and spicy hop characteristics. Overall this is a nice beer for this style very nice hop to malt balance with a spiciness and some light fruit, not bad. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pint on tap at the brewpub. Thin khaki persisting head. Mildly hazy brown-red color. Heavy caramel aroma, some coffee. Lighter carbonation, bigger body, kinda creamy. Sort of malty, spicy sweet light hop taste. Decent, hoppy and spicy irish, although it isn’t my favorite style, this is a good one. I tried some of the nitro version of this, enjoyed it much better. Creaminess works and the aroma is more pleasant in my opinion, go for the nitro if it’s a choice. phaleslu (10957) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2012

This poured a medium red color with a beige head. Aroma was light citrusy hops and some caramel malts, and some biscuts too. Flavor was a little less hops than I was hoping, basically another classic malty metallic red.
