Commercial Description

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.

    A somewhat classic Irish Red Ale. This ale is feisty and a bit hoppy. There is a malty sweetness and a somewhat dry finish. Traditional East Kent Goldings but with a nice touch ...

    A sweet-tempered malty amber ale with a hint of dark-roasted malt, noble hops, and a subtle yet lovable chocolatley finish.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: Its body is dark reddish copper in color and it has nice clarity. The head is average size, light tan in color and fades down to thin covering. Smell: The aroma is sweet and malty with hints of caramel and toffee. Taste/Mouth feel: The favor is much the same as the aroma with a malty character and light mild hops in the background. Its finish is smooth and clean with a medium body and a smooth creamy texture. Notes: This is a very easy drinking beer with simple pleasing flavor.

    [Best served in an English Pint]

    Bottle. Poured a clear dark red-brown in color with a small white frothy head that was mostly diminishing. The aroma was that of cookie and caramel malts with a light scent of flowery hops. It tasted sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel was creamy and medium bodied. Overall an average brew.
