On tap at the Bethlehem Brew Works Brew Pub.

Poured a darker ruby reddish/copper color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of caramel malts and light chocolate. Tastes of the same caramel with some chocolate. This one had a light to medium bitter finish.

A fine, fine brew from the gang at Bethlehem Brew Works, although a slightly surprising style. This deeply reddened brew poured with a respectable head mounted on its top, but quickly vanished to a fine lace. The aroma was that which I recall of a typical Irish Red...slightly sweet, but still pleasing to the nose. This brew was a palate-pleaser...not too heavy, nor too light. A good session brew for those looking to try something a bit different from Fegley & Co.

Zum wohl!

Deep red/amber color with moderate head. A little too clear. To me an ale should be a little cloudy. Also served much too cold for an ale.

Flowery bouquet hidden by much too cold serving temperature. Smooth drinking with strong bitterness up front which mellows into a somewhat sweetness as it warms. A delightful beer to try to get a good idea of the types of beers they brew and serve.
