Irish Red Ale |  5.50% ABV

Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Rager Red is a medium-bodied red ale, a malty brew with hints of caramel and toasted bread. It’s smooth and balanced, with a subtle earthy and spicy flavor and aroma from the hops and peated smoked malt. It’s the perfect beer to transition from the heavy dark beers of winter to the lighter more quaffable beers of summer.

2.99/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A - Pours a pretty nice deep amber color with just a 1/4 inch of head.
S - Doesn't smell very sweet has a sort of herbal hop smell and dry yeast.
T - Wow this is pretty bad. I knew it was bad when I had to choke the rest down but very green bean vegital forward with a touch of herbal bite. Very little malt sweetness, biscuit flavors, or hops. What the hell am I drinking?
M - Light to medium, ABV should be sessionable but its such an odd flavor.
Overall it's kind of like a skunked amber lager rather than an Irish Red. Man I was kind of psyched for this since most of there beer rock but this begs the question of why this is brewed and bottled every year...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance (3.50) : A very small, light head with a beautiful dark-amber body.

Smell (3.25) : Not overly aromatic, however, I can catch hints of roasted malts, pecans, and other toasted nuts.

Taste (3.75) : I actually really enjoyed this flavor. Very, very dark with a lovely smoky taste, not horribly complex.

Mouthfeel (3.75) : Dark, smoky, low carbonation, very fitting. Very good flavor profile.

Overall (3.50) : Incredibly decent beer, small faults in the smell and complexity of the taste, but overall this is a very good beer.

3.7/5  rDev +26.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This poured with a rich burgundy top while the bottom stayed clear and bronze. The head was a bright white layer of fizzy yet dense foam.

The aroma is sweet caramel malt, toast, pecan and roasted nuts. It is a tad weak or it would be higher.

The flavor has tons of roasted pecan, sweet caramel, toasted bread and a sticky bread like finish. Faint tea leaf like undertones support the sweeter flavors.

The feel is a bit slick, very crisp, very light and easy to drink.

This is my second attempt at this beer and found it much more satisfying this time around.

1.88/5  rDev -35.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 1.75

Poured this Irish Red Ale from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.
Poured clear red-amber with a small tan head that soon reduces to a thin partial coat and left only small rings of lacing.
Aroma: looks fine but has a pronounced smell of a Band-Aid; yes, plastic/rubber band-aid dominates, with some malts in the background.
T: Unfortunately, the flavor is, at best, no better; the band-aid impression is even clear in tasting.
O: Avoid!
