Rollin Dirty Red Ale, our Irish-style Ale possesses a deep amber color. It displays a forward caramel aroma with hints of chocolate and roasted nuts. English hop varietals lend a floral to herbal bitterness which helps to round the carmel sweetness and lend some crispness to this year round ale.

Interesting Irish Red...

A dark red, practically black looking brew with light foam. Smell was malty with a mouthfeel that was light on carbonation. For an Irish-Red I think I found it very full of flavor, more so than others I have had. Overall a solid brew, something that will make me keep an eye out for more from Brew Bus.

People think this beer is lean.
A dark brown tint so it’s easy to be seen.
When you pour it you can see the glean.
And its shine in the glass and the taste of chocolate bean.
This beer is rollin

A deep red color greets you, reminiscent of Christmas cheer. The drink itself lacks carbonation, with only a thin head, much like the Freeze Miser. What initially tastes like it will be hoppy is quickly cut by a chocolate intervention, something we all hope from our Christmas stockings. A pleasant reminder of Christmas all year long.

Perfectly acceptable Red.
Looks are average (dark amber not much lasting foam.) Smells are mostly malt (caramel stands out along with something even more sweet, like honey.) Tastes are still well-balanced by the hops and some other herb or tea. Finishes sweet and dry. Good bubbles cleanses the palate.

My first from Brew Bus , so I went on their website. They are young (5 years!) and successful (enough, at least, to buy another brewer called Florida Avenue... that also is half of their taps.) They also seem to be having lots of fun. Interesting though, they have 5 brews with 100+ BA ratings and the rest are not even in double digits. Maybe that is why they are making money.

Drinking out of the van by the pool- can't rate appearance. Has a good robust smell. Flavor is rich and nutty with a hint of coffee. Feel is smooth and rich wth good carbonation. A flavorful beer, perhaps not best for shot day by the pool, but definitely worth having again.

On tap into a pint glass. Hazy copper brown color. One finger off white head with nice retention. Caramel and some cherries on the aroma. Caramel and burnt toffee on the palate. A slight tartness that threw me. Medium bodied with a nice feel.

Pours a dark red color with a light head on top. Can get a light roasted malt smell along with h something sweet. Can make out the roasted malts in the taste along with hints of caramel. One of my first Irish Reds and was pretty good.

I am happy to add this to The CANQuest (tm) after picking it up at Philly's Monde Market for inclusion. These are glorious days, indeed!

From the CAN: "Hop on for the ultimate craft beer experience on the Brew Bus! From brewery tours and tastings to sporting events and bachelor parties, the Brew Bus offers a once in a lifetime experience for everyone. Our tour guides are experienced and knowledgeable, and our staff is friendly and accommodating. Hop on today!!"; "Rollin Dirty Irish-Style Red Ale is deep amber in color with hints of caramel and notes of chocolate. English hops lend a herbal bitterness for balance."

I Crack!ed it open and watched as a light amount of foaming action came up through the vent. Upon settling, I could see that it was another brimful craft CAN with nowhere for the tab to go. I then decided to be gentle with my Glug, resulting in a brief finger of fizzy, foamy, tawny head that quickly fell to wisps. Color was Coppery-Brown (SRM = > 17, < 22) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was very malty, almost like a maple syrup smell. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was actually not as sweet as the nose had led me to expect. It had a light caramel flavor, but accompanied by an earthy bitterness that may have been from either the malt or the hops. This is the kind of example of the style that I like. I have had malt bombs in the past and this was completely unlike them. Finish was semi-dry with the light bitterness being enough to offset the sweetness of the malt. I would not want a bunch of this, but it was a nice change of pace.
