Pours a clear dark copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of raisin bread, raisin, and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, raisin, caramel, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of toast and earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a great smell, but there is an astringency in the flavors that diminishes the drinkability for me.

Serving type: bottle.

Single 330 ml bottle poured into a tulip. A rather dark ruddy brown with a huge frothy beige head that initially filled two-thirds of my glass before settling to leave a few dollops of lacing here and there. Aroma quite sweet and malty with a clear fruity overtone: Brown sugar, apples, apricot, faintly woody yeast. Less sweet on the palate and by my reckoning features less of a toffee pudding or cookie flavor than do many other Irish reds. More sour fruit, nut, and molasses character with some citrus iced tea and herb notes. Medium thin pale ale-like body with a dryish herbal finish in which I can detect some leafy hop. More hop character than is typical for the style. Quite crisp and refreshing if on the fizzy side.

My "gateway" craft beer. Still good anytime I have it.
