2.53/5 rDev -28.7%
12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.
L - slightly hazy burnt-orange color with a small off-white head that stayed as a thin layer.
S - buttery, what happened here?
T - something's off in the taste as well as it's kind of sour.
F - the sourness in the taste kind of killed things for me.
O - no date on the bottle - let the buyer beware.
If I try this again and it has improved I'll re-review it.

Review from sometime the past couple weeks... this one of a SOURED 12 oz bottle.
A: Brownish orange with a decent cream collar.
S: Caramel whipped cream with strawberries and some cherries... kind of murky.
T: Tart funky strawberries, caramel backbone... interesting. Tastes like biting a fresh strawberry.
M: Thinner, creamy.
O: Wish I had a good bottle. This version deserves the low score.

Poured from the bottle into my Thirsty Dog nonic glass
A- Pours a clear dark red color with high carbonation and a three finger fluffy off-white head. Left no lacing
S- Sweet malts, medicinal aroma, diacetyl, and some caramel. Not really that pleasant, but not as terrible as it sounds
T- Sweet bready malts, caramel, medicinal taste, diacetyl, and an almost cola like taste
M- A little overcarbonated, I like my Irish Red's a little more creamy and smooth.
O- A disappointing Irish Ale. A little bland, not overly medicinal tasting but the taste is definitely there. I had this on tap around St. Patrick's Day and while I was not blown away by it, I seem to remember liking it a little more than I did this time.

Served as a sample at Thirsty Dog in Akron. The color was amber, with a ring of head. The smell was caramel malt. The taste was somewhat bitter with a slight malt. Mouthfeel was average. As for drinkability, could have a couple.
Well, not a bad beer but lacks compared to some of the bigger, more flavorful beers later on in the tasting rack. Though I'd likely go for a pint of those before this one, it's still not bad as a session beer.

3.25/5 rDev -8.5%
This is a very nicely crafted beer with just a bit too much caramel malt sense to be considered a top offering. The nose is definitely caramel malt with little else impressing. The look is a reddish amber with an ivory head and decent lacing. There is grain in the finish but little hop sense is noticeable. Creamy with too little carbonation to put crispness in the feel. Good effort and enjoyable, but the style has better representatives - a lot better.
