Consumed in the Canoga Park BJs.

Appearance- Poured a nice amber/red with a light orange head. The head looked almost like orange sherbert. Very good head retention, and good lacing.

Aroma- Mostly malt sweetness, and a citrusy hoppy aroma. The hops were kind of disappointing.

Taste- The beer has a decent balance of citrusy hoppiness and malt sweetness. I wish it had more hops tho..

Mouthfeel- Thin-medium body. Good carbonation level.

Drinkability- I tend to prefer more flavoring and aroma hops in my red ales, but I'm a major hop-head.

This beer was poured a nice amber red color with an almost orangish head. The head lasted most of the beer and there was a good amount of lacing. The aroma of this beer was a cross between, a sweetish malt and a nice citrus floral aroma.

The beer had a really nice citrus type malt characteristic that made it almost taste like a sour barley wine, there were hints of hops at the end, but it was not a very hoppy beer. You could taste the alcohol slightly but it was balanced well with the malty flavors. The mouthfeel was good, the CO2 was a little bit weak, but nothing to complain about and it was slightly thin.

This was a pretty good beer, I was expecting a red ale, but I think I would put this more in the strong ale category without the big alcohol content.

This beer is an interesting concept, at least I am intrigued by the description. Take an uninteresting Irish Red and double the recipe to give it some character. This beer sits a full red color in my glass and is topped by a pale tan color head that is pretty long lasting. The aroma is malt dominated with notes of caramel, a fruitiness that reminds me of cherries, and some toasted malt notes. The beer tastes sweet and malty with lots of fruity notes as well. I get notes of strawberry, cherry, caramel, and biscuits with a nice honey glaze. There is a bit of bitterness in the finish, which seems to make a feeble attempt at holding the yeasty fruitiness and solid malt notes in check (this is certainly not a bad thing either). I am really struck by how fruity this beer is, there is also a palate coating fullness to it that slowly melts to an herbal hoppy bitterness in the finish. Quite nice, really lives up to the verbal description.

Sampled on tap at the Las Vegas (Summerlin) location, but brewed in Chandler, Arizona.

This "Irish style strong ale" poured a dark, red-amber color with creamy, tan foam that settled. The smell was mild: malty with a hint of alcohol and a touch of cocoa. The taste was malty with notes of caramel malt and a very light sweetness. The hops were mild. A note of alcohol could be detected. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with med-full body and moderate carbonation. There was a slight bitterness in the finish, and overall this beer was warming. This was a pretty good red ale.
