(22oz bomber thanks to blutt59) red/amber color with a few bubbles of dank tan head around the edges. Nose of caramel, paper, light hops. Taste of paper, cracker, medium sweet caramel, a bit of umami. Well carbonated body. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Red-amber with a tan head. The aroma is grass, toffee and a light amount of funk. Flavor is heavy on the caramel and toffee. Very dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. burg326 (5628) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Poured an amber red color from the bottle with aromas of malt, caramel, vegetables, and some light dyicatal. Flavors follow suit, a little off putting with some off flavors. .. Not sure about this one. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12oz bottle, unknown date but recently acquired, served in a pint glass.
Pours a fine looking deep red-brown, clear, with a tan head: moderate size with very good retention and lacing.
Aroma: roasted and caramel malt with some spicy hops. Hints of dark fruits. The flavor follows, although it is stronger and richer than the nose suggests, with a bit darker roast in the malt mix. Only a faint suggestion of dark fruit. finishes semi-sweet and a bit watery.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium-high carbonation
O: quite good and tasty Irish Red Ale. Recommended. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. A rich brownish red colored brew with a thin light khaki head. The nose has some malty caramel along with some peach pancakes. This tastes like cheap brown pancake syrup on some pancakes. Notes of caramel and almonds come through in the long finish. The caramel gets stronger as you drink. I think that this could easily be called an ESB. The body is slick and thick at the same time. Actually, this is a nice drinker with just enough sweetness and hints of roast to keep it interesting, I dig it.

Bottle. Big huge nose of diacetyl and diaper. Pours a dark red to brown. Flavor is awful and full of butter, sewar, and burnt rubber. I hope for everyone’s sake I got a bad bottle. DialSquare (5186) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2010
From an old tasting note. On tap at the brewery/restaurant. Deep red pour. Roasted malt aroma. Taste - sweet malt, caramel, earth. Nice medium texture. ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2010
16 ounce pint - $5.25 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours from the wall-o-taps a clear, reddish-amber body with a scant, white head.
Smell: A scent of toasted bread crusts and burnt sugars with a pervasive, though light waft of harvested berries and some background, minuscule notes of earthy herbs and spice.
Taste: Toasty, bready maltiness with a sweet flourish of caramelized sugars. Hint of berry-esque fruitiness. Modestly earthy hops with an additional zip of complimentary spiciness. Medium-low bitterness. Smattering of fruitiness on the bittersweet, drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Hovers comfortably around medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: A smooth, pleasant brew to pair with watching the Masters this past weekend. Best of luck to Dempsey and here’s looking forward to his forthcoming RIS and IPA. edgallow (4629) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2013

Clear dark cherry amber color with a bubbly off-white head, streaks and dots of lace. Taste semi-sweet caramel malt that grows into bread and dates as it moves to an oily carbonated finish. Loads of flavor, not always in harmony with each other. Good, not great.
