Inoffensive, easy drinking, boring. Had way worse, but, won't purchase again.

Looks like a flat root beer. Very clean aroma with some fruity esters. Mild hop noted as well. Mild flavours with more hop eccentuated. Metallic finish like I'm drinking out of a stainless steel tankard.
Paired well with Redbreast 12 yo cask strength Irish pot whiskey. I guess I'm feeling Irish today.
Solid pull off the shelf.

Draught pour in a branded glass in my local village pub. Appearance is a dark ruby-red with a creamy head, it smells fruity, hoppy and with hints of caramel. Taste is balanced, not too sweet or too bitter and feels great going down, not too heavy but also not too light with a light, not bitter, caramelly aftertaste. Overall his is one of my favorite beers and I do a "BlackSmith" when I want to transition to a heavier stout. Can drink this all evening.

This is a very decent beer!
Not crazy about the label...
I like the green label with the castle better!
