Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a pint glass
A: Pours a nice hazy amber with some reddish hues in the middle some nice golden edges as well. Frothy half finger white head with a wonderful net lacing left behind.
S: Light fruits with a nice toasted malt backbone. Sweet honey as well.
T: Light citrus fruits with a nice dry malt middle. The finish is really great. Light sweet caramel with a smooth faint toffee. Little bitter hop finish at the very brings the ale back home.
M: Great mouthfeel, light/medium bodied with a crisp finish. Nice medium carbonation with a little toasty oat and bitter hop finish left on the palate.
O: I thoroughly enjoyed this red ale. Great combination of flavors that go through every range on your palate. It keeps drawing you back for more, and boy did I oblige.

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
