Appearance – Pours an amber color with about one half finger of a thin foam which disappears within about 2 min.

Smell – Very slight malt aroma.

Taste – This beer has low hops and bitterness. Does not leave an aftertaste. Low flavor. Goes down pretty easy without thinking.

Mouth feel – High carbonation and slightly watery.

Overall – An average beer that doesn't detract but has no outstanding characteristics.

A- Pours a red amber. Thin half a finger head stays at a slick and retains well there.
S- Smell is kinda weak. Caramel malts, a little grassy, and a faint metallic note.
T- A grassy, lightly herbal, caramel flavor. There is a bit of mineral in the finish.
M- Light body, high carbonation. Slightly seltzery.
O- It's ok, but it's a bit too one-dimensional and the aroma is disappointing for me.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy amber orange with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. A two finger head fades into a thin white film. Moderate lacing.

Smell: Lots of caramel malts and grains with a mild hint of grassy hops.

Taste: Lots of malty caramel sweetness with some grains. Also has a light kick of earthy hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light body that is slightly watery. Medium carbonation. Very crisp.

Overall: A decent red amber. Nothing great but not bad.

not impressed by this weak beer not very redeeming as others mentioned just a bit above Bud. Still if you are in charitable mood it could be worse barely it's too sweet for me. I say there isn't much Irish red ale about this beer or american red ale like either so I think is way below style wise. the head disappears fast leaving a golden color body. light vague smell of malt. Sweet malt taste. a bit harsh carbonated on the tongue. Overall not great beer experience a bit below average drinkability

Others have done a great job describing the appearance, smell, taste, mouthfeel, and drinkability. Some have gone too high and some too low in my opinion. This beer as noted in one of the first reviews isn't great, but isn't terrible. That's a "C" in my book. Average. Yep, it's a little bit better than a Budweiser. I could down this stuff because it's like water.

On another note all profits from this beer go to charity. That's pretty cool.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Light amber as advertised with about a 1/2 inch of eggshell white foam.

Smell: Grain & Malt

Taste: Non-descript. Malty with slight hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body, crisp due to moderately high carbonation.

Drinkability: Quaffable. A better choice than Budweiser, but not something I'd seek out.

A - Poured out a clear, amber color with a samall, off-white head of foam.

S - Smell is bland. Malt, caramel and mild floral notes.

T - Malty with sweet caramel. There is a mild hop bitterness. Not much else.

M - Fairly crisp and sharp. A light bodied ale with a dry finish.

D - This was merely okay. It was the only thing on tap at the hotel bar that I hadn't had.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: The pour is a light amber color with a fluffy off-white head.

S: A pretty light and unimpressive nose overall with some light notes of grain and caramel.

T: Light in flavor as well with a strong adjunct character. Almost like glorified Budweiser, showing plenty of corn and grain.

M: Fitting in with the rest of the beer, the body is quite light and overly carbonated and fzzy.

D: Not a fan of this one at all. This was enough of an experience with this beer.
