On-tap 3/15/2013 at British Beer Company in Walpole, MA, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep coppery red color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, tea, honey and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweet flavors of caramel, honey and tea come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to pound down for a while.

Tap at Admiral TJ O'Briens

Light fizzy head fades quickly over clear reddish orange color.

Nose is a definite red ale, reddish toasty malts, semi sweet malt, that topical Irish red ale with toasty malts and crisp ale almost lager like.

Taste is similar, crisp ale flavors, semi sweet malts, red toasty malts, typical irish red ale flavor, light spicy feel, light sugary almost lager flavor. Finishes drier, spicy mouth feel, clean finish, light malts. Could have used a slight spicy hop profile IMO but then again this is a lot closer too the actual style. However, a very slight grassy mild hop bite does start to come through.

Mouth is med bodied with decent carb.

Overall decent beer, very much to the style, I personally would have liked a bit of a hop profile but it would be more American style then.

Brewed in honor of Worcester's favorite Irish theme restaurant.

A - Poured into a pint glass. A nice chestnut brown almost maple syrup coloured pour. A thin one finger head dissolved to leave thin wisps with no side lacing.

S - Nice light roasted malt aromas alon gwith just a hint of yeasty bread like qualities. Not picking up any hops on the aroma.

T - Slight toasted sweet malts across the palette. This is not an assertive beer by any means, full of low very subtle flavours. Not picking up any hop characteristics at all though just sweet, carmel malts.

M - Medium carbonation really feels good on the tongue. Feels a little thin though. Not quite watery, just thin on the mouth.

D - This is an incredibly sessionable ale. Nice flavour and all around solid approach. Would have no problem putting back a growler of this. Very, very easy to drink.
