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!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a clear dark deep mahogany with a small (less than 1 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and did not have much lacing at all. The aroma was heavy of a biscuit malt, a light floral hop, and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and some toffee. It tasted malty sweet with a hint of toffee from the start and then had a slightly bitter hoppiness to it with a light sweet caramel finish. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow allowing for the malty bitter sweetness to settle nicely on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was creamy in texture and just a shade under medium in body with a lively carbonation. Overall this beer has a nice sweet maltiness with a touch of hops to it. Although it is a tasty and average brew, I have to say I did it enjoy it and would drink another.

douglas88 (8665) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2017
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.

Obfuscate (521) - Minneapolis, - JAN 1, 2017
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 (1058) - 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 (117) - 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.
