3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
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!

Bottle in Seattle. Malty dark brown and a dissipating off white head. Sweet malty red nose, lots of syrup with a red fruity edge. Fruity red malts, a touch of tootsie roll. A bit empty, but with an ok bitterness. Fair. Itzjerm (2947) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2017
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. Chadhami (142) - - APR 29, 2017
This beer looks beautiful on the glass, great brownish red color. Not much in the flavor department but goes down easy. SlimHabib (475) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - MAR 11, 2017

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. Can’t really go wrong.

(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 (2568) - 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.
