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!

Pours a lovely deep copper with a beige head. The smell is fantastic with a rich array of roasted malt, caramel and a hint of coffee. The taste was good but not as exciting as the smell led me to expect. While the malt and caramel is there, it falls a little flat. The finish a it thin and dry. Still quite nice overall.

Avverage at best. Very flat on taste and don't really get the rich and malty as advertised. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear reddish color with a medium tan head. A light malty caramel nose. The favor is caramel, toast, light floral hops, some sweeter maltier elements. Pretty nice for what it is. Clean. A bit of a spicy finish.

Beer 4 of the New Year and probably the best tasting one so far. Nothing special, just a solid malt forward beer with a hint of sweetness.

Quick3Beers (1056) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Pours a nice rich garnet-brown from a bottle, white head with lots of lacing. Caramel and grass aroma, similar flavor, nicely bitter behind the sweetness. Good beer.

Kleg (116) - The Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Clear mahogany pour with a beige head and good retention. Good lacing. Thick mouthfeel. Strong caramel flavor mixed with light hops bitterness. Wish it didnt have the hops. 5.8 ABV is slightly evident.

Pours a very clear, medium red color. About two fingers khaki colored head. Has pretty good retention, good lacing.

Aroma is malty, quite malty. Pretty nutty, a little bready. A pretty good caramel aroma. Not a lot of hops.

Taste is well balanced. Leaning sweet, but not too much. Enough noticeable earthy hops to keep it in check. Good bit of toffee and caramel. Nutty.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Smooth, a little slick. Theres a surge of earthy hops at the tail end. Still it finishes clean. This is an easy drinking beer.

Overall, I like this a lot. Its very mellow, and pretty delicious. This is perhaps a little less sweet than other Irish Reds Ive had. I will recommend this, and I am eager to try it again.
