Triumph "Irish Red Ale".

Triumph's notes:
"Triumph proudly pours unfiltered "real" ale finished and dispensed in the traditional British style, served at cellar temperature (50-55 degrees). Though Ireland is justly famous for its stouts, it OTHER native beer style, red ale, has found a significant following in recent years. Murphy's, Smithwick's, and Killian's are all examples of Irish Reds characterized by caramel malt flavors and roastiness"

A clear berry red -- like a very watery pinot noir or cranberry juice. They claim it's unfiltered, but it looks really really clear and filtered to me.

I'm not getting that much out of it -- perhaps some lightly roasted malt and a hint of tea?

I can't taste as much as I can smell -- a bad sign. Very watered-down malts, some earl grey tea flavor. Finish is a bit dry. This is somewhat balanced, but at a really low and un-flavorful level.

Like drinking slightly thicker water. Virtually no carbonation.

"Meh" pretty much sums it up.
