Kroney (255) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours reddish copper. Aroma is surprisingly bitter forward with the malt being the secondary and last thing you smell. Taste is a complete 180 -- all malt sweetness and very muted overall flavor. Decent session beer.

On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Medium to dark amber. Nice head. No aroma. Somewhat malty and sweet, though not cloying. Not much hop character. Ultra clean finish. Bland.

This beer was pretty gross. Nice deep red color. Tasted malty and metallic.

Ill have to be generous on this one given the tasting circumstances. Poured from a truck-side tap in Disneyland (California Adventures Park) into a green plastic cup and costing almost eight dollars. Difficult to discern the color through the neon yellow cup but i assume it was red and clear, no head present. Aroma was pleasant caramel and dried dark red fruits. Minimal hop bite, caramel and light fruit dominates to flavor. Body is relatively light with carbonation that is soft and smoothly effervescent. Ill have to try this again in the proper glassware.

DavidAust (240) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
Nice drop. Had several times in the last two weeks, must say I like it less each time - not sure why. Perhaps the batch was on its last legs by the time it got to Australia. The foam on the first few were reasonable and held OK, but the one last night hardly formed and didnt hold. Nice reddish brown colour - tastes of caramel and malt. Length of palate is medium, longer than a larger - shorter than other dark ales. Overall happy, but will look for another Irish Red Ale to become a regular other than this one.

Dashimus (235) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear red/light brown with a minimal head. Aroma is malt, raisins, caramel. Slight hint of hops. Not complex at all. Taste is medium sweet with a slight earthiness. Light to medium bodied. Low carbonation.

Bottle. Deep red brown pour, dissipating off-white head. Malty, watery, something almost metallic in the aftertaste. Not much on the nose, however. Medium (barely) body. Its okay.

Little in the way of aroma. A nice red color. Super malty flavor. Balanced and non descript.

Pours a beautiful red tinged golden brown. Zero head. And I truly mean zero. The top is crystal clear. Zero aroma. I can't smell a single thing. Tastes okay, but very watered down. No unpleasant off notes. Just plain and boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
