tap Aroma is sweet, of cream, sugar, and malt. Flavor features malt, candy sugar, toffee, and a strange skunkiness. Not terrible, but definitely on par with my (low) expectation cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2012
12 oz. can from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear deep mahogany color with a medium size light tan head. Nice layered lacing. Aroma and flavor is caramel malt and esters. Medium body. Taste like your typical Irish ale. Worth a try Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 30, 2013
12oz can. Rating #18. Nice looking beer, dark red with a little amber and pretty clear as well with a nice creamy light tan head. Light toasty aroma with a bit of caramel. Mold malty flavor, light sweetness and a little more toast, decent stuff. (2828) Bif (2307) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - FEB 28, 2014
On tap. Served a deep amber color with a thick head and ample lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of citrus and caramel sweetness and grain in the background. Taste is malty with some caramel sweetness, bit of citrus and grain. Nice bitterness and a malty finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy with a nice touch of character. Enjoyable beer that is refreshing and a leg up on most ales of this style. ronaldtheriot (1977) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Santa Fe Irish Red Ale has a thick, somewhat soapy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear (with a slight haze), rust-red appearance, lots of bubble streams, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is not too strong, but one can detect sweet, bready, crusty malt, and a slight citrus note. Taste is of all of those elements, with a noticeable tannin quality. Bitterness is low. The mouthfeel is light to medium and a bit soft, and Santa Fe Irish Red Ale finishes refreshing, easy-going, and delicious. I recommend checking this one out! RJT

This Irish Red has a dark red color and is mostly clear-bodied, with a dark caramelized nose and palatable sweetness. The mouth is sweet as well and very well-balanced, with a malty pleasance. It’s easy and enjoyable. I like it. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2012
12oz can that I got a case of for cheap. Dark red-brown color, good head. Smells super malty, not bad. Flavor is robust and malty, cereal, sort of surprising given the abv. Good session beer even though its a little darker in color. Santa Fe makes some pretty decent beer.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 The aroma blends caramel and bread malts with dough yeast, and the appearance fuses a clear reddish brown color with a large white head. The taste has a mild sourness, slight umami, and a touch of sweetness, and the palate fuses a thick and slick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a long malty finish. smaynard6000 (1224) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Pours a dark red with small white head. Aroma is subtle and sweet. Flavor of caramel malt balanced by some slight hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied with sticky mouthfeel and slightly bitter finish. Pretty good. gschrade (1094) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2014
I had this at the Flying Saucer. Pours reddish-brown with a tan head. Taste Carmel, biscuit, nutty. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again.
