From notes taken during lunch before the Saturday session of EBF 2012.

A - Clear reddish amber color with a thin off-white head and some lacing on the glass. A nice, clean looking beer.

S - Very malty, little bit of caramel and other amber-ish malts. Very faint notes of hops.

T - Malts, caramel, taste exactly as expected for the Irish Red style. A very good example of the style.

M - Medium bodied, nice carbonation, creamy with a bit of crispness in the finish. Very, very drinkable.

O - Boston Brick Red is a nice and solid example of the style. In particular, it is very drinkable and a great accompaniment to a meal (I had this one with pizza). It is rare and I definitely would like to see more of this one.
