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.

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.

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.

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!
