3.74/5 rDev +3.9%
A: This poured a clear dark mahogany with chunky sediment.
S: It smelled like dry roasted barley with a little earthy copper hops.
T: It tasted like earthy copper and nutty malt, with a little roasted barley. It had a clean dry and somewhat bitter aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with some carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a decent Irish red ale. Nothing exciting, but very traditional scent and taste and body. It had a clean and mellow finish, so it was really easy to drink. Not bad to try once, but I prefer something more interesting.

This is review number 400 <w00t!!>
12 ounce can poured into a New Belgium globe glass
A - Wow, as soon as I popped the top foam began to ooze of out the can. I wonder if my son shook it up and put it back in the fridge because he is just weird that way. The color is a nice apricot red and there is a towering frothy light tan colored head that just lasts and lasts. It took me five minutes to finally get all the beer poured into my glass. Retention and lacing are legendary. I'm giving this a 2.75 though because I don't like to wait ten minutes before being able to take my first sip.
S - The smell is sort of weak to my nose. Maybe a little grainy with a slight alcohol note.
T - This beer had a very sweet malty flavor with a dry finish. Maybe some roasted flavors there too. There is a bit of a punch to the flavor that was somewhat unexpected.
M - sort of thin, but lots of carbonation.
O - refreshing enough, but I did not dig the foam geyser.

Pours a dark red colour with a white head.
The smell is soapy, with some sweet malts. The soapy smell is a bit weird.
The taste is very nutty with some sweet malts. Simple but very tasty.
The mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation.
This a simple yet tasty beer. The smell was a bit off but didn't detract from the overall beer too much.
