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!

Reviewed 2/16/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a clear reddish copper color. The head is a one finger light cream shade with an excellent creamy texture. Retention isnt great, but the lacing left on the glass is good. S: The only thing I really notice aroma-wise are sweet caramel malts and earthy hops. Maybe a touch of diacetyl comes through, Im not really sure. Whatever it is, its not very impressive. T: Just like I said in the aroma, its caramel malts and some earthy hops to finish it. Theres a faint touch of fruity esters and some hazelnut in the midtaste, but this is very simple otherwise. This does a good job of dictating exactly what the aroma suggested - by being quite mediocre. M: This comes off rather sweet and syrupy; given its clean texture, it feels rather strange on the palate. If any beer needs a drier finish, this is it. Not particularly drinkable for that reason. O: Cant say Im a huge fan of this one. Its hard to really place what I dont like about this, but it ultimately doesnt come together nearly as much as it should.

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.

Bottle from the mixed 12 pack from Country 3 corners. Deep amber color decent sized off white head that persists. Rich caramel maltiness bready pilsener floral earthy hops round this out nicely. Pretty decent red ale.

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 (1060) - 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.
