This rich and malty ale originated in Ireland in 1710. It has a deep red color and distinctive caramel flavor from its Pale and Caramel malts. The malt sweetness is balanced by the earthy notes of East Kent Goldings hops. Cheers!

12oz bottle. The beer poured a red/slight orange color with an okay frothy, tan head. I smelled a caramel malt with slight floral hops. The beer went down with a light body and slightly oily texture with little to no carbination and a slight bitterness. Overall, I am not a big fan and I probably wont buy it again.

Deep amber beer with off-white head. Has a nice aroma of yeast, bread and caramel. Taste is sweet with caramel and hard candy notes as well as a firm bitterness and dry roastiness, presumably from roasted barley. There is a touch of diacetyl. Smooth, full mouthfeel but finishes a little dry. Not bad.

Bottle, Pours a nice red to amber color, with a tan head, moderate aroma, some hops and citrus notes with medium malts. Taste is actually pretty good for a big brewery, they did well with this style which I usually find lacking but a nice a moderate mouthfeel make this a decent SA brew.

Pours a bright ruby/amber color with a full off-white head. Aroma is maple syrup and spice. Taste is sweet roasted malt, caramel, licorice and mild hop bitterness. Not outstanding, but a decent representative of the style.

I was very underwhelmed by this offering from Sam Adams. I was hoping for more flavor than what I got. Wouldnt buy again

Bottle: Dark brown, tawny color, tannish head. Nose of sweet light caramel, grass and some juniper. The flavor is balanced, chewy malts, generic bittering hops. OK Mouthfeel, good red. A bit lacking in punch but drinkable and a good body.
