2.65/5 rDev -16.9%
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.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Off-white head, high retention, suddsy lacing on a deep copper, clear body. Aroma includes caramel malts, slight hop bitterness, slight brown sugar sweetness note. Taste is also caramelly sweet and some hint of vanilla and brown sugar. Nothing off-putting, nothing too radical but a very tasty and easy to drink amber like ale.
