Tasted on 9/24/14 from a 12oz can received as an extra in a trade. Pours a clear burnt umber with an average white head that leaves average lace, with some sticking to the inside of the glass. The nose is malty dark bread with just a hint of herbal hops. The flavor is the same bread malt and somewhat peppery herbal hops with just the lightest hint of smoke. The body is just under medium with lively carbonation, and a medium bread malt and very light hint of smoke finish. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2014
can pours red, mostly translucent. toasted malt, balanced, some flowers and citrus in the finish that linger just a little. medium body that feels a little syrupy. jgb9348 (6438) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Deep ruby and light brown coloured body with a crisp, cola-coloured glow and a thin tan head. Aroma of nuts, earth, alcohol and some subtle hops. Medium-bodied; Strong caramel and nutty flavour with a lot of earth and malt noticeable, coupled with some alcohol bite and a hint of rye or grain. Aftertaste is fairly one-dimensional with a hint of caramel and sweetness at the end. Overall, a decent Irish Red with some nice light complexity. Neat to try, but I was expecting a bit more when this was brewed at Cigar City. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased yesterday at Good Beer in New York, New York for US$2,39 on 19-July-2014 sampled on the train from New York to home in Washington on 20-July-2014.

12oz can, thanks to jtclockwork for sharing. Date on can reads 2/25/14. Mostly clear darker red color. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Earthy hops, caramel malt, toasty malt, light spicy. Moderate bitter taste, kind of a dry finish. Light sweet. Hint of chocolate. Gets better as it goes. Decent Irish style red ale. kbudd19 (1019) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Can, dirty red pour with white head. Aroma, some sweet malts and a. It of smoke. Taste, a bit flat, light sweetness, watery and not much flavour. Well it’s drinkable not much flavour though. StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Not gonna waste a whole lotta words on this one. Its weak. Might be good on a bus tour of Tampa, but it doesn’t play well in my garage. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Can @ home via Homer321. Thanks ! Pours a dark copper appearance with a lasting brown head. Aroma is thoroughly nasty. Lots of cooked cabbage, creamed corn, and DMS along with some metallic notes. Moderately sweet flavor with a decent caramel / toffee backbone but it’s just plain ruined by the massive DMS notes. Maybe there was some issue with the cans. This was very gross.
