A - Poured a clear, burgundy color with a small, off-white head of bubbly foam. It had nice retention and left some sudsy trails of foam on the glass.
S - It smelled earthy, grassy and of sweet maltiness.
T - Biscuity malt sweetness leads off followed by caramel and a grassy/earthy bitterness. The bite is mild but adds balance.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.
O - This is a nice Irish Red ale. Easy drinking and sessionable, it makes a nice spring seasonal.

Served on draft at the brewpub. The aroma features tons of malt. There are notes of sweet caramel, english toffee, and a pinch of burnt or roast character in the distance. There is also some fruity yeast character. There is a slight bitterness in the finish. It rolls over the tongue very nicely. Worth the time.

Appearance: The color is appropriately red - that red/golden color that makes your tongue water. The head fell quickly.
Smell: The smell is pretty fresh - almost odorless. I tried to get a feel for it, but it seemed evasive. Might have been the bar setting.
Taste: The taste is surprisingly refreshing. There is a really nice mix going on in here: some of the sweeter hops are working in combination with fermented apples, pears and grapes.

this was a pretty decent red. dark ruby brown in color with some very fine particulates forming a dense dark core in the middle and top of the liquid. tan head. got some caramel, molasses, and roasty notes in the nose. tasted pretty good with a moderate sweetness balanced by the underlying hops and roasty flavors. medium in body and carbonation, pretty well-balanced. would like a bit more hops but overall very nice.

Draught @ Brewpub: This one poured a hazy, dark amber color. There was a good sized frothy off-white head on it. It left lots of lacing. The nose is a bit mild. Some sweet caramel notes as well as a touch of floral hops. The taste is OK. Caramel malt with just a bit of sweetness. Maybe a touch of roastiness in the background. Barely dry finish. Nothing special, but very easy to drink.
