Served in a Devil's Backone willibecher.
Without research, I don't know who this Reilly is, but apparently he likes reds (and probably red-heads, too...but, then, who doesn't?). This brew pours a clear orange amber topped by a a bit more than a finger of whitish micro-foam. The nose comprises toffee, hoppy citrus, and some white biscuits. The taste is similar, but the caramel notes are watered-down, the hops melt into a bland floral bitterness, and a strange minty-ness (I think that's how to describe it) creeps in as well. The body is light, with a light carbonation and a crisp, semi-dry finish. Overall, a rather average red, but it's nice to see new things popping up down here.

Poured a red body with decent head and lace and the aroma is bland as I get touches of sweet malts and hops but not too much really going on. The rest of the beer is the same as the beer is light, smooth, minimal hops add some but not complete balance and the beer is just an easy drinking caramel and toffee sweet malt mess that isn't bad but not something I want again.

Toasty and easy to drink a lot of. This beer pours an orangy-amber color into a pint glass. A hard pour gives you a medium size somewhat off-white head with average retention. Some lacing on the glass.
Aroma is mostly sweet bready malt with some grassy hops thrown in as well.
Taste is more of the same. Caramel malt, somewhat sweet, some rich bready malt as well and grassy hops. There is a little sweet toffee like flavor here too.
Mouthfeel is crisp and light. A good session type beer.
Nothing earth shattering but a nice everyday/session type beer.

Poured on had tap at Pizza Paradiso Alexandriahad into a shaker pint.
An absolutely perfect copper amber, glowing deep orange and clear. Very creamy tan one finger head presented with a nice puck.
Nose has a yeasty sticky caramel, and muted malt sense. Quite closed not much really going on.
Palate comes with a nice creamy mouthfeel and moderate combination. Slight hints of grass and mild hop bitterness. A very slight twinge of chewy grapefruit and citrus on the finish. Caramel sweetness seems to be missing and lacking a little. Warmth brings out more character but still toned down.
Different a little bit of a spin on the style, not bad.

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty deep amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell if of caramel malts, some sweetness. Taste is well balanced, caramel malts, some hops, tasty and very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a fine beer and disappearing quickly.
