WastedYouthBrew's rating

WastedYouthBrew (143) - Phila (Home of Geno's Steaks), Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Whilist I roamed the streets of jersey looking for cheep ale, close friend and comrade McLats and myself picked up a six pack at Wilco’s. It was to be Murphy’s Irish red which proved to be soothing to the palate. As it turns out it was a delicious blend of finely placed hops that was not abusive to my sense of taste and smell. Sidebar, vision remained and so did touch and hearing ability. Pick up a six pack sometime and attempt to embrace Irelands green pastures and delicious sounds of the chieftons. Caps off and cheers to Murphy’s Irish Red, for you surely are a king in a peasant’s world!

Oiolosse (143) - Granada, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2017
Aromas de malta y caramelo. Color de cobre, claro. Pobre cabeza blanca, rápidamente disipando, y casi sin encajes. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación plana. El sabor es la malta y dulces dulces. Nada extraordinario.

foyle (421) - Wyoming, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Served from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass. Pours a thick, foamy cream colored head that falls slowly with plenty of lacing on the glass. Color is clear amber with abundant carbonation streams. Aroma of rich bread dough, caramel, earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly wet finish. Flavor is abundant with molasses, toasted malt with some char, caramel, raisin, well balanced with earthy hops. Really enjoyed this one and would buy again.

EugeneStraver (238) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2017
20170507 HOME; 33 cl bottle without draught flow; BB oct 2017. A clear light amber colored beer with a good off-white foam layer. Aroma is somewhat sweet with slightly amount of higer alcohols (give a light fatty impression), some caramel and a small amount of hops bitter. Taste starts somewhat sweet with light caramel. Body is light with a somewhat watery feeling, which makes the bitter comingg good up with a dry finish.

erinc (14) - , TURKEY - APR 24, 2017
330ml bottle. Light red/amber color with almost no foam. Malty taste with very little hoppy bitternes. Light to medium bodied. Nice carbonation.

bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 2, 2017
330ml bbOCT2017, BLsampler. - Bref: the stainless steel third runnings of gently caramel/maple syrup-drizzled toast, made for unquestioning pub sessioning. Some sulphurous barleypaste farting through the twiggy caramels. Alluring copper-auburnginger in its pint on draught. Slight residual slickness. E poi niente.

2.5
LaPelos (37) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 28, 2017
Botella de 33cl. Escaso aroma, levadura, malta. Ligeramente amarga, poco cuerpo. Final amargo, no demasiado persistente, Se puede beber, sin más.

2.8
AnG_BrgNor (700) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2017
Tap. brown to red with thin foam. Aroma is malt, brown sugar and some hay from the hops. Taste is caramalt, malt and bread.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Hard to believe I never rated this, well, nothing like the right time. Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a ruby red color with a sly transparency about it. Finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a subtle pace. Stringy lace. The aroma combines toast, nuts, caramel/toffee malts and a delicate sweet cream. Some grassy hops underneath. The flavor leans towards the sweet side through the toast, malts and nuts. Hops barely play any part in this department. Nice smooth sweet aftertaste flowing into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation. ABV felt right. Overall, I like this one as an Irish red ale, not sure why it doesn’t get better marks, but then again, I’m guessing no one else is rating to style. Oh well, I’ll drink more of this preferably this time of year.
