A dark amber color brew with a very strong head. A nice strong malty flavor with a tad of hops added to the aroma. This was a good brew I liked the flavor. A good easy drining brew I really could get a flavor of carmel and some off tatse that where very good.

Tap at pub. Clear deep dopper colored with a fairly loong lived off-white head. Aroma is muted malt with light earth hop notes. Medium bodied at it’s most finest. Malt, possibly caramel and melanoidin? Modest bitterness and hop flavor. Pretty decent for a non-flashy beer style. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2006
This was quite enjoyable, I think next to the Defroster 2 this is my favorite. Great nutty malt character with some cinnamon spiciness with some caramel and toffee thrown in for good measure. ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2004
2004 draught. Thought this was an alt, it had a nice muted nutty flavor, some dusty notes, but I guess after thinking about it, there was little to no yeast apparency, no sourness. Pretty light for an EPA, hops nowhere to be found. Light roasted malt, mostly dry with some hints of caramel on the finish. Great session beer, no major problems. Medium-light body. Aroma is lightly nutty with a soft even malt. Great deep reddish-orange color with small off-white head. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Clear ruby red color, darkish. Thick off-white sticky head. The aroma is lightly spicy with some caramel malts and thicker bas malts showing through. The flavor is well balanced, nice malt sweetness like candi topped with a sprinkle of PNW hops. Very nice Irish Red.

Medium orange appearance. Very mild sweet hop aroma of pears and apples. Very plain maltiness, slightly sweet with a sour melon finish and a little bitterness. Good but not fantastic. Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Not too bad for a red ale (should be listed as such). Good dark copper color, with a good malty presence. Red ale taste throughout the palate. Decent. AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2002
Nice malt/hop aroma, and a beautiful coppery color, with a small white head. Nice malt taste, with a bitey hop finish. Good stuff, and nice with the fish and chips.
