On tap at the Brewery last night. Poured into a clean, clear pint glass.

A Nice solid translucent Red Ale look. No head retention observed. Not really remarkable.

S Good, solid Red Ale smell with Barley, possibly a bit on the grainy side (not a problem, just observation).

T Soild Red Ale if a bit heavy on the Barley or grains (this place is called Barley's though, what should I expect!).

M Appropriately moderate.

D Good, especially if you are a Red Ale fan.

Notes: This is a soild Red Ale from Barley's.

One of the seasonal beers on tap the last time I visited Columbus.
From their website: "Brewed to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day, the Rogue was our fourth beer and the first to which we added whole hops in the fermenter. A refreshing, hoppy ale that won't slow down festive celebrations. Please -- no green dyes!"
This beer was reddish amber color with a thin cap of slightly offwhite foam. Good head retention, thin strings of lace left on my pint glass.
The aroma is mild, some caramel roasted malt and a balance of resinous pine. Nice full flavor, good pale ale - like hoppiness to compliment the slightly sweeter malt. A bit of floral essence keep it refershing and easy to drink. Good carbonation, decent mouthfeel. Would be a very nice sessionional.

This was one of the seasonal beers at the Pub. It was served in a standard pint; the beer was rusty amber with a skim of tan head.

The aroma is of pine, caramel and lightly roasted malts. Very nice!

The taste tracks very close to the nose. This is a red that has more than a bit pale ale in its bones. Nice hops balanced by sweetish malts. A bit earthy late and remains respectably aggressive.

The mouth is slightly thick but still has active carbonation. This is an easy session beer here as it will hold your interest.

A: Had this beer on tap as out of their house pint glass. It poured a clear red-amber color with a nice off-white head that faded fast and left a fairy ring and had some lacing.

S: The smell is rich and malty and a bit hoppy.

T: A very nice red ale. I didn't like it as much as the Scotch Ale or the Porter but it holds it own.

M: Mouthfeel was medium and had a bit of bite.

D: A fairly drinkable beer. Had two during the week.

Well with St. Patrick's day nearly upon us, it was time to sample the new batch of Irish Rouge before the bar hoppers on that day drain the cask dry. This beer was an medium reddish amber color and formed an off white bubbly head that left circular lace as it subsided. A subtle aroma of malt and citrus with a slight grain element to it. The flavor was of malt and lightly of cirtrus. The finish had a slight bitterness to it, but nothing overpowering.

Slightly tart, nicely hopped Stout. Slightly more complex than the Ol' Ron's Oatmeal Stout. Slightly dry and bitter finish. A very solid beer and another winner from Barley's.
