Poured from a growler into two pint glasses. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: Pours a nice hazy red with a finger of creamy off-white foam that leaves ample lacing.

S: Hard to pull much out of this but when it warmed up it was mostly toasty malt with some mildly lemony hops.

T: Very close to the smell but not as hard to find. Toasted bisquit-y malt flavors are layered with mild citrus. Nice.

M: Sticky and a little on the dry side. Good and ashy during the finish.

O: A very good example of a typical Irish Red. We liked it and would get again.

Picked this up to share at the Gorilla Tango Geek Girl Burlesque BBQ. Served in a plastic cup.

A - Transparent amber-red body, light tan foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and minimal lace.

S - Malty, with hefty doses of bread, red fruits, a touch of burnt toffee, and perhaps a light touch of grassy and herbal hops.

T - Again, quite malt-forward, with toasted bread, light berries, touch of brown sugar, and some mild hop bitterness that grows after a few pours.

M - Smooth, medium body, with a toasty and dry texture to it. Moderate carbonation, clean finish, and no discernible alcohol.

D - The growler was a big hit at the BBQ, as this was a very accessible and easy-drinking beer. It's a pretty traditional, albeit a tad more hoppy than popular takes on the style (although that could be related to freshness of imports). Don't think anyone will be beating down the door for this be brewed again, but I can see it being a hit with craft beer n00bs. The growler emptied pretty quickly.

Poured from a growler into pint glass

A: Pours a deep amber red color. There is a small tan head which dissipates to nothing. There is very light spotty lacing.

S: I get a nice orange scent upfront, followed by some sweet brown malt and brown sugar. Mild herbal pine in the background.

T: There are similar orange notes in the taste as in the scent. Overall it is a sweet beer with some spicy, almost rye like notes which meld with a moderate alcohol presence. A little bit of piney hops bring up the rear.

M: Moderate mouthfeel and just a little bit sticky. Carbonation is mild but effervescent.

O: A decent red ale. Some spicy notes remind me of rye. Alcohol is present but mild and enjoyable.
