A nice smooth red ale. Smoother and very so slightly sweeter than Killians. I'll buy again.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Thomas Creek brewery in Greenville, SC. The appearance is a reddish orange color with a small white head. The aroma is slight malt and grains. The taste is toasted malt and is slightly bitter.

Though its an ale, i dont find the brew hoppy. As a non-hoppy guy, a pleasant surprize. Malty, caramel, rich complex taste. Nice creamy feel. I really enjoyed this brew and will look for more when i get home.

I agree with the Alstrom Brothers' description, an all around exceptionally well balanced Irish Red Ale. No one particular traditional red ale ingredient dominates this ale's taste or smell. Outstanding job Thomas Creek Brewers! One of the best Irish Reds I've had and I look forward to another one.

Color typical of the style; deep copper. Lingering, off-white head in the glass. Caramel malt in the nose, no hop presence. Good malt flavors mid-palate, with light English hop flavors and roasted malt well balanced. I'd say medium body but with crisp mouth feel and dry, light roasted and very smooth finish. Very easy drinker.

Poured into a pint glass. Thanks to thagr81us for this.

3.5 A: Clear orange amber color. One and a half fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention isn't so good and only a touch of lacing.

4.5 S: Smells more like a brown than a red...and I like it. Lots of nuttiness with sweet caramel close behind. Candy like sugary sweetness third. Simple, but really nice.

4.0 T: Again, simple but pleasant. Nuttiness is number one again. Caramel, toffee, and a moderate balancing bitterness.

4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Perhaps a bit too much carbontation. Reasonably creamy and smooth.

4.0 D: After looking at the average for this, I'm not quite sure why everyone hates it. It's a solid red ale that tastes more like a brown ale. I'd happily drink this again.
