On-tap at Park Tavern - Rosemont, IL, served ice cold (too cold) in a shaker pint, it took forever to warm up enough to get any sort of aroma. It poured a deep red with a beige head, that actually had smaller bubbles in a tighter formation. Excellent head retention as well. Aromas were weak at first, but came through as bready caramel malt and earthy hops. Tastes are earthy, bready, dry, rye bread crust, slight nuttiness, slight pine on the finish; malty but hop bitterness balances nicely. Very creamy and smooth mouth-feel with nice carbonation. Overall, pleasant American Red Ale reminiscent of a dryer Irish Red but with a more bolder hop profile.
Serving type: on-tap
