      Pretty dark brown-red, big head. Fruity, herbal aroma. Pretty thick, lots of caramel. Well-hopped, but not at all overhopped.

      Amber, fairly low carbonation, great head. Caramel and hop aroma. Pretty big beer. Bitter balance. A little fizzy. Pretty tasty...good choice for the first beer of the day.

      Red-amber, nice head. Very fruity aroma. Excellent caramel flavor...beautiful lingering finish. Fruitiness is completely in the aroma, none in the flavor.

      Deep amber. Very similar aroma to Dempsey's Irish Red. Smoother than Dempsey's.

      Darker than most Ambers. No head. Not much aroma. A lot sour. A little thin. Doesn't get any better no matter how often I try it.

      Hazy yellow etc. Caramel aroma...and something else. OK flavor, kind of sharp. Not nearly as good as the Amber. Some fruity notes.

      Dark golden, moderate carbonation, good head. Sweet aroma, spicy, a little smoky. Good body, peppery spice. Some bitterness in the middle, but the pepper dominates the whole thing.
