look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16 oz. pint poured at the brewery, unknown brewing/kegging date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 2/3 - amber-red coloration, moderate clarity, initial frothy off-white head settles into a glass lacing with carbonation lakes, tight pinkish bubbles pouring off the bottom of the glass

S: 9/12 - rich caramel and reddish malt aroma, little hops, some alcohol in the background, no diacetyl, no DMS

T: 14/20 - on the front if the palate, there is a gentle bitterness; in the middle of the palate, the malt profile - caramel, toffee and butterscotch; on the back end, there is a continued malt presence, finishes semi-sweet but not cloying

M: 4/5 - moderate body, silky/smooth, moderate carbonation

O: 8/10 - very good-to-excellent Irish red ale, a style that I don't typically drink - silky mouthfeel and rich malt profile; again, highly recommended for the $4.50/pint price

TOTAL - 37/50
