red-brown colour, fine head, hazelnut aroma, some sourness followed by a long, deep chocolate and spicy finish - rich and quite subtile

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2003 I"ve always liked Irish reds, and this one is no exception. A nice, well-balanced beer, with plenty of body, but not too heavy or bitter, more malty than hoppy. Bob"s 1st is Bob"s best, I happen to think.

Somewhere between an Irish Ale, a Scottish Ale, and a Red Ale, this is just good beer, my friends. Easy-going malt is the name of the game here, with a sweet-tart note running through a very mildly-hopped finish. Soothing and delicious.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 22, 2001
Fairly dark color, and a solid malt/hop aroma. Thin head. Flavor was thinner than I expected, with hints of tartness. Tartness followed into the aftertaste. Not my favorite - perhaps he got it better on his 2nd try...

This is the draught version of their Bobs first ale, dispensed like a Guinness. It is quite excellent, with a rich, smooth, creamy mouthfeel and a hint of chocolate malts. Id drink this over Caffereys any day of the week.

A good ale, drinkable, decent malts and some hop presence. i liked it, but not as much as others from this fine brewery.
