On tap at Engine 15.
Surprised to see that the Hornswoggled is a red ale; it came without a description and was very bold for style and certainly seemed to be a hazelnut brown.

Clear dark brown with a semi-durable head; excellent clarity.

Very mild aroma but moderately strong flavor. Dominated by hazelnut.
Mildly bittersweet, with a mildly bitter aftertaste.

Feel: adequate carbonation but overly thin body. (414 characters)

On tap at the House of Brews. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. Huge creamy nitro head. Beautiful lacing and nice thick wisps.

Smell - Very malty. Caramel and some deep roasted malts. Almost some coffee.

Taste - Super nutty. Caramel. Minimal hoppiness. Again with a strong roasted character.

Mouthfeel - Creamy, as expected. Medium bodied. Slight bitterness in the back.

Overall - Kinda meh. Drinkable, but I doubt I'd want a lot of this. (456 characters)

NOT a traditional Irish red! Oak/big vanilla in aroma/taste. Also some sweetness (orange peel?). Solid but couldn't drink a ton. (128 characters)

Had it on tap, and it was amazing. Tons if caramel malt in the aroma and flavor. Creamy, satisfying mouth feel. Do yourself a favor and try this one if you see it. It will pair very well with any pub food. (209 characters)
