12oz Flasche. Orange-braunes Bier mit flachem Schaum. Es ruecht schön nach Röstmalz. Geschmack angenehm herb. Das geröstete Malz kommt schön heraus. Bitteres Finish. TheHopster (1111) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2016
(Bottle). Pours a red-amber complexion with persistent white head and glass lacing. Bread aroma. The flavor is a simple mild malt with lingering hop balance. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Poured out a very nice golden orange with a bright amber, short lived head. Aroma was very floral, maybe heather? Taste was floral and citrus, very IPA. Average. Aberry (1) - - DEC 21, 2015 does not count
Definitely drinkable, but it does not stand out on its own. It really never excelled (or failed) in any category It has a weak head, and I almost felt like I was drinking a soda. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
I think this was the first Irish Red I ever drank, and it’s probably still better than Killian’s, the same way stubbing your toe is better than stubbing your toe and breaking your toenail.

bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown with a good 1" beige head, stripes of lace. Nice aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is edgy malt that turns sweeter on a lightly carbonated swallow. The whole thing moves from there to a lightly bittered finish that becomes more earthy as it drifts for several "minutes." A solid, easy-drinking brew. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Surprisingly good. Middle of the road. Toasted malty flavor. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

Bottle. Pours Amber with a thin head. Molasses aroma. Earthy maltiness up front with a hop bite at the end. Fairly pedestrian but okay drinking, probably wouldn’t buy again. lukin (663) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
bottle. Ruby-red colour, bubbly head. Malty and sweet, caramel and even a little cotton candy/vanilla on the nose. Earthy hop finish, but still overwhelmingly malty. ok. GarrettB (1636) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Ever since my first college Killian’s Irish Red (God rest its blessed soul) I’ve been a devotee to the Irish Red. Strangely opposite of the Belgian Strong Ale, it tends to have a single, pronounced flavor, rich with caramel and toffee, with a clean, crispness that keeps away the candied, saccharine flavors that can kill a good beer for me. So, it is with some eagerness that I attempt the Sam Adam’s version, which begins with the characteristic rich, malty smell, drizzled with quality, but also bringing in a peppery quality I’ve been noticing across some of these fancier Sam Adams beers. The flavor dumbs things down a bit with a blunt grape fruit flavor and mouthfeel, adding a little maltiness for body, but letting me down. These overwhelming sugary notes are lager killers for me, and this one OD’d on sugar cubes.
