Had this beer on tap at FX McRory's before a recent baseball game. The weather was sunny, the beer was perfectly balenced and terrifyingly easy to drink... And it is so refreshing to see a return to the traditional Irish red ales. So often in the Northwest everything has to be either an "imperial" version of hopped like an IPA regardless of the fact that it's not an IPA. This beer had a perfect hint of sweetness on the nose and palate, followed by a smooth flavour and crisp finish that does not linger on the palate at all. This is a beer for the masses and one that you should try!

Best served on tap. Bottles and growlers available in local stores or at their tap room in Bremerton. My wife does not like beer, but found this one last summer and really enjoys it as well. I recommend it for summertime beer for parties, camping, for graduation parties.

I think you must need to a a certain genetic structure to enjoy this Red Ale. I can tell you that a native Texan is not that person unless they are from El Paso I enjoy trying new things but I missed the boat on this one. I think I could drink 10 of these and regret every one.

A: Pours a cloudless amber red with a thin head that quickly dissipates.

S: The caramel really pushed through on the nose. There's evidence of some nice citrus-like aroma hops, but the malt really takes center stage.

T: Again, the caramel really pushes through big time, giving way to some honey notes and a nicely bittered finish. After all is said and done, the caramel lingers on and on.

M: This is a solid, medium-bodied ale. Carbonation is spot on.

O: In all, I would have this again. It's not my favorit red of all time, but it's well balanced and tasty for the most part. I might have rated this higher but the caramel is a little too strong for my pallet.

2012 release poured from a 22oz bottle into a wide-mouthed wine glass.

Big thanks goes out to Jerriko for sending this one to me in a past trade as an extra! Served from bottle into a New Belgium globe. Poured red-orange with a minimal off-white head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, caramel, caramel hop, and fruit hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, caramel, and caramel hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. Nothing on this brew really stood out to me unfortunately. However, it was quite easy to drink and rather enjoyable at the same time. Basically only carried the typical Red Ale flavors, without adding anything new and exciting to the mix. Worth trying for a fan of the style or anyone looking for an easy to drink Red Ale.
