A- definitely not blood red like the label states, but a clear dirty copper color with a puffy beige head. Foam becomes wispy as it settles and leaves fine threads of lace.

S- mineral water and chocolate with some toasty hazelnut toffee and caramel as well. Tea like hops. Cashew brittle.

T- sweet and nutty with a sense of hazelnut. Not really picking up any of the rye malt. Toasted grains and caramel with a hint of soil, stone, and red berries. Mild chocolate and grassy hops in the finish.

MF- medium bodied and slick. Leaves a strange "artificial" feeling on the cheeks. Carbonation is tame and felt mostly on the tip of the tongue.

D- this is an odd one. Probably my least favorite out of newcastle's seasonal line.

Deep copper colored with a diminishing creamy head. Some lacing.

Toasted malt upfront in the aroma. Grainy and sweet.

More of the same in the flavor, with a slightly metallic, bitterness. The bitterness lingers for a while, but the malty sweetness does not.

Light bodied. Almost to the point of emptiness. Carbonation is a little too sharp for my taste. An everlasting dry, bitter finish.

Nothing crazy here. A decent amber/red ale. I might buy some more next year, but it's not one I will highly anticipate.

A. It has a big foamy white head which leaves some lacing behind. It has a dark mahogany color. It is just barely see-through. I don't see any bubbles.

S. A malty and caramel scent. Much like a regular Newcastle.

T/M. It has a strong grape malt taste. It is extremely smooth. A bit dry and light bodied. A hint of a celery taste underneath, but it is just mainly a malty beer.

O. It's a bit bland, but it is very easy to drink and is very smooth. Just meh, but not bad.

I found this one for a dollar at my House of 1,000 beers. Poured into a pint glass.

A - A head that never seems to quick with pretty sweet lacing. Color is not of a "blood red" more of a dark amber brown.
S - Mild skunky lager yeast meets some sweet caramel malts and a touch of biscuit.
T - I get some sweeter malts pushing more toward the flavoring of vanilla or caramel and some mild skunked hops in a lager style finish with some toasted bread. Not bad for a "sessional"
M - Light to medium on par with the style.
Overall I have had better Irish Red ales but anything is worth trying for a buck.
