Poured a reddish brown nut color with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head that dissipated almost right away. Minimal wet lacing on the side, poor retention on the top on the way down.
Smelled very malty right from the beginning. Got dark fruits and malts full nuts, toast and caramel. Seemed to be some faint bitter notes in there late. Reminded me slightly of a Newcastle.
Tasted a lot more bland than the smell. Still malty, but not as flavorful as the smell. Toast, nutty and faint caramel.
Medium-to-light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Longer smooth finish.
The definition of an average beer. mjteeters (37) - Issaquah, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Mixed pack with 12oz. bottles. Dark with a red tinge and a white head. Minimal aroma, touches of malt ... carmel? Toast/bread and ctirus with a really nice (sweet?) finish. Very nice limited release. Gem of the mixed 12-pack. DMLINAZ (337) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Nice limited time offering from a solid brewery. Pours orange copper with a thick fluffy white head. Aroma is of malts, caramel, maybe some alcohol (not bad). Flavor: I enjoyed this one. Nice toasted malts, caramel, some mild smokiness. Long finish. robforbes (2260) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2013
pours a semi-clear copper red with a small dirty white head, and a little lacing.
smell is of caramel, malt, some spice, and a touch of fruit.
taste is of caramel, some hops, roasted malt, and slight amount of citrus. ends a little tangy. bpreo (2902) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Limited edition beer. I’m trying it two days too late (after St. Patrick’s Day). Tasty.

Dark reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice malt Irish flavor. Decent amount of hops. Nice easy drinking Red Ale. AdamGott (386) - Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA - FEB 19, 2013
slight red colored brown ale - aroma of malt and fruit - complex flavors of bread and light citrus. finishes with bread and light malt. Good.
