Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Undated bomber purchased at the brewpub.
Awesome looking brew. Pours a very brilliant amber, redish color, very clear. A nice one inch thick, cream colored head forms. Fades a little slowly, leaving a ton of delicate lacing. Citrusy hops dominate the smell as with most Three Floyds brews. There is a musty, dusty, malt smell in the background. Very well balanced flavor of citrusy hops and caramel malts. A tad sweet, very enjoyable. Mouthfeel is quite smooth, and medium bodied. Drinkability is great, this beer goes down smooth, not filling at all, and leaves you wanting more. Another great beer from Three Floyds.

Three Floyds Brian Boru is an Irish Red Ale with a 5.5% ABV and 40 IBU's~ Pours rich and translucent Copper red, Caramel tints when light up~ Nose is full bodied with Tobacco, Bubble Gum, Grapefruit, Pineapple, Caramel, Chocolate and Toffee~ The feel is Medium, Creamy, Rich and well balanced, delightful~ Tons of tiny Bubbles, Big white head with tons of lacing~ Taste is Strawberry, Caramel, Toffee, Bread, Cream, Toast, Citrus, Honey, Brown Sugar and some Pine and Oat~ Honestly really nothing jumps out... Expect the fact that its extremely well balanced~ I would say a nice even balance of Hops and Malt~ Really just a perfect brew for session drinking~ Such a great take on what is traditionally a rather boring and dull style~ I can't believe I'm tasting 'Strawberry' in a NON sugary processed adjunct ale, Its naturally sweet and delicious~ Overall: 92
