A - Dark orange-red color. Medium sized, creamy, smooth, frothy, slightly off-white head. Average retention leaving a small amount of lacing.
S - Toffee and caramel aplenty as you would expect. Some sweet bread and hints of light brown sugar. Slightly roasted malt aroma. A touch of earthy and floral hops.
T - Pretty sweet with loads of toffee and a good amount of caramel. Touches of nutty and earthiness with a roasted malt finish. Brown sugar and some dark fruit aspects. Sweet, toasted bready malt. Sweet but not cloying.
M - Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty smooth and creamy. Slightly dry finish.
D - Pretty easy to drink and while it is sweet, it is far from cloying. Tasty and easy to put down. Plenty of malt but it has a nice hoppy touch.
Notes: Nice Irish Red. Not my favorite from TG (can't match their IPAs or Stouts) but it is a nice change, and for a smaller brewery it is good for a deviation from their niche. Plenty of malt and a nice sweetness but not cloying. Overall it is nice but not something I'll crave.

Pours from a growler, amber red with a thick creamy tawny head. Looks good. Smells earthy and malty, light grain. Very nice mild and inviting. Taste is smooth lightly grainy, lightly bitter. Caramel and biscuits. Very lightly pine. Mouth feel is creamy body is medium light holds together well. This one is mild across the board but with good craft roots clearly visible. Easy drinker but not spectacular.
