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!

A lightly sweet aroma. It has a beautiful rich, ruby red color. It has a simple caramel and malt flavor. It has a pleasant smooth finish. Its not a complex beer, but it has a wonderful flavor, and one I could drink all day long.

Everything a basic red should have. Nice head that never ends. Nice grain with some husk flavors as expected. Sweet malty light burnt sugar. Nose is all the same. Enjoyable.

This beer looks beautiful on the glass, great brownish red color. Not much in the flavor department but goes down easy.

Samuel adams all have a very distinct flavor, and if ur a fan of that flavor, then you are bound to be a fan of most sams. This one is tasty and simple. pretty much what i expected. nice frothy head that lasts a while. malty and tart, good looking dark color. tartness lingers on the finish. Cant really go wrong.

Rex_Remes (200) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JAN 30, 2017
(12oz bottle) AROMA: sweet corn/malt, fruit/pineapple, tobacco. APPEARANCE: reddish Amber, textured brown foam, clear, good carbonation, nice looking beer. TASTE: rich malt, molasses, solid ale notes, coffee grounds, dark green grass. PALATE: medium body, crisp upfront, water-focused feeling, bitter. OVERALL: solid red ale, sweet (and a little sour) malt focus, but with a nice amount of hoppy bitter followthru, not overly heavy but filling.

Fatehunter (2533) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw body. Aroma is caramel and dark malt... but a little off. Taste is malty sweet, almost no bitter. Easy. Texture is smooth.

euniceradio (524) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 12oz bottle to tulip. Pours ruby, no head or lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, malts. Nothing too special going on. Taste of hop spice, dark fruit and roasted malts. Grainy finish. Wish I could have rated a better beer for my 500th rating.
