Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #26:

Reddish brassy color, crystal clear with a decent amount of foam on top. A little toffeeish and hoppy in the nose with a more firm grip coming from the bready malt. Smooth, with a fluffy, moderate-sized body--exactly what you are looking for with Irish Reds. Maltiness bounces from caramel sweetness to biscuity graininess, and stays clean throughout. Hops are dialed in just enough to balance with the bitterness and add some character with a mild herbal/citric flavor. Maltiness lasts, which is nice to see, as many of the mass-produced Irish Reds seem to drop out with an immaculate aftertaste. A vague fruitiness is present middle to end; finishes with a light sweetness.

Right on target here, it's a style in which you don't want massive complexities clinging on the palate or flexed flavors bursting at the seams. Balanced and very drinkable--not a flaw showing.
