A - A nice 1/2 inch of opaque head atop of a deep amber red beer, very clear and bubbly.
S - Smell is great toasted malt, caramel sweetness, and a touch of drying yeast. Very little hops.
T - A bit drying which is nice for an Irish ale. Caramel malt sweetness, a bit of toasted malts, and very little hops. As expected.
M - Light to medium bodied, a bit heavy for the ABV but its nice.

Overall this is a very good red ale, smell and taste is spot on, very clean and flavorful especially for the low ABV. Worth picking up for $1.75.

Pours a dark clear rusty brown, a medium slowly fading beige head, light lacing. Aroma and Taste of toasted caramel malt and grains, yeast and fruity notes with some earthy hops bitter notes. A medium body, crisp, good carbonation. Finishes with toasted caramel malt and grains, fruity, some yeast, with an earthy hops ending for balance and mild nutty flavor. A good beer for the style, has the typical Irish Ale characteristics. A good drinking brew.
