At the Brewery: This one was fun to watch settle out. Good red color. Kind of a doughy taste. I recommend going to the brewery. Some pot heads I know described it as Disneyland for beer. I don’t know about that, but it was enjoyable. jazz88 (2679) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Bottle. Dark brown with ruby. A laced off-white head. Not much aroma, some dark malts. The flavor is weak. Thanks to Tim for bringing me a couple of Magic Hat beers. estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 13, 2002
Transparent reddish-brown body, small tan head quickly receding, fruity nose with a bit of grain. Dark fruits and roasted malts, some bitterness in the finish, some hops. Decent. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2002
I dont think I have ever had a true Irish red ale before, but i really liked this. Very dark red color with very slight head. Nice carbonation- lots of malt and some hops. This is just a good drinking ale- very smooth. freekyp (2235) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2002
My personal favorite Magic Hat. Hat’s distinctive apricot overtone is prevalent in this entry. Nice meelow red color. Head dissipated quickly.

Thought that this beer was unimpressive. I was hoping for a lot more, but the taste and palate was not very appealing. Color was a dark brown with some reddish hidden tint. The head was non-existent and the flavor was bitter. Not a good beer. russnug (35) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2002
Nice creamy head that dissapated rather quickly. Somewhat of a roasted front end. Smooth middle and a light bitter finish. Duffbeer (192) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Hopefully, I just got a bad batch. It was pretty skunky. Terrible taste, and aroma. Will try again though to make sure I just didn’t get a bad batch. austinpowers (2828) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 10, 2002
Decent Irish Red beer, but nothing to get too hyped about. Someone at the brewery told me this is identical to Bob’s First Ale - what a load of crap! I’m tasting them side-by-side tonite and while Bob’s First is schwarzbierish and roasty, HPatience is considerably more hoppy. Moral of the story: don’t believe receptionists at breweries. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Clear dark copper body with a medium off-white head. Grassy and slightly caramel aroma. Flavor is grassy bitterness tempered by toastiness and sweet caramel. Fairly clean aftertaste that ends quite bitterly grassy. Impressive for an Irish Red.
