(USA) Nice Red Amber color with Sm-White Head. Has a mild Fruity/ Malt Aroma with a Carmel/Nutty taste. The Palate has a Bitter/Dry finish!!! I am not sure what is missing here?? But better the Killians.

I liked this beer. It was very malty and a little dry. Its color was a deep rich red/brown. I will enjoy this beer on the upcoming holiday.

Pours a nice dark red color, as the name implies. A full taste, moderately think in flavor. A pleasant surprise from a beer I wasnt expecting too much from.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Pours a clear reddish-orange with a frothy ecru head that leaves behind a decent web of lace. The nose is of pale and caramel malts with supporting notes of burnt sugar and lightly earthy/herbal hops. Light to medium-bodied and soft, almost creamy, with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Burnt sugar, caramel and pale malt with a fairly clean finish. Its a decent Irish red, but its a bit too sweet for my tastes Overall, this one doesnt do a lot for me.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2008
From bottle : Pours a clear dark red color, with a very impressive finger and a half of white foamy head, with very good retention, and sticky lacing. Nose is caramel malts, dark fruits, nuts, and some faint hops, very sweet. Sweet flavor with caramel malt notes and dark fruits. A sweet bitter ending, with a pretty pleasent aftertaste. Medium bodied with a stinging palate. Pretty good though.

The aroma is sweet with malt, caramel, and grassy hops. The appearance is red/amber with a nice big head. The flavor is sweet with toffee notes and an astringent bitter finish. The palate is average. Overall its pretty good.

12 oz bottle, pours a dark red, almost rusty color with moderate head. Aroma wasnt as much as I expected but still carries the sweet caramel aroma that gets sweeter as the drink wears on. Taste is plentiful and rather generic; somewhat bitter but also sweet. Palate is average. Overall decent Irish ale and definitely beats Killians.
