brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a burnt orange/amber color with an off-white head. S: Sweet and slightly toasty malts with a bit of caramel. The hops are nearly absent from the nose. T: Nothing really stands out in this beer. Slightly sweet with caramel notes and a bit of toasted bread/malt. Very light earthy hops. M: The mouthfeel is similarly unassuming. Medium in body and carbonation. D: Not at all bad, but theres nothing here that makes me want to drink this beer again. Its fairly bland and uninteresting. Im not trying to be a "typical American" here and need some monster ABV, but some nice flavor would be a good start.

On tap at Porterhouse in Dublin, Ireland. Surprised this one isnt rated a bit higher, to be honest. I thought that outside of the porters/stouts, this one was the best I tried. A bit of caramel/toffee sweetness but a nice hop backbone. One of the better reds I got to taste on my trip.

obguthr (6184) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Malty barley nose. Amber color, medium head, good lacing. Tart malt and full of flavor. Its not exotic, but it isnt supposed to be. What it is is a well crafted and made irish red.

Pours clear amber color with off white head. Aromas of caramel and biscuit malts with some grassy hops. Caramel malt and iced tea flavors with some hop bitterness.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2010
bottle from papago consumed 7/10/10... dark coppery reddish amber with a sandy off white head. the aroma is of toasted caramel, mild chocolate-coffee-nuttiness-thing, some umami and a ton of spicy dry earthy hops. the flavor is nice and malty with notes of chocolate, nuts, caramel, a ton of spicy hops and a tingly dryness on the finish. the medium body is a little astringent (biscuity) and very crisp. 7/4/7/4/15/3.7

tap - Pours clear amber with a lasting frothy head. It has a light, toasty aroma. The flavor is of toasted caramel malt with a solid hops bite. Its medium bodied and pretty enjoyable.

tmoreau (4164) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2010
On tap at the upstairs bar in Finnegans of Plainfield, IL. Poured a clear, deep copper color, with silky, off white, head foam, and clingy curtains of lacing. The aroma was light grain, toast, a bit of caramel, and the slightest hint of berry fruit? The flavor added some low hop bitterness in a light body, with some dryness to the finish. Maybe a little thin, but not a bad session beer

rubbishystuff (2487) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2015 Nice to see something other than Guinness brewery out of Ireland. Not bad. Something a little strange going on in the aroma. Also the flavor was overly subdued. Serving: Tap (Nitro?)

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2010
11.2oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber hue with a small, fizzy, off-white to cream colored head. The body looks thin and weak, and theres very little lace spotting left behind. The aroma shows notes of biscuit, caramel, and amber grains, with just a touch of faded, peppery, floral hops. Flavors are equally unimpressive, showing mainly weak, biscuity and grainy malts that muddle together with passive, dry, stale floral hops. As the appearance suggests, the palate is weak, both in substance and carbonation. Not good.
