Pours an SRM of about 14, nice butter colored head, sticks around awhile. 80 percent opaque.

Lots of rich copper malts and apple skins on the nose, with a hint of caramel sweetness and Bartlett pear.

Flavor brings that apple out front, swirling with a sweet caramel malt body and some polite hop juice. The finish is pure roasted barley. Fruity esters remain on the palate.

Feel is light to medium, mild carbonation and a semi dry finish.

Overall i think ill be grabbing a sixer for my band to try. This beer is SERIOUS.

I would say the weakest link in this beer would be the feel. It has a malty body, but not chewy and a bit flat. A zing in the end helps, but it just feels thin.

With that, it is an easy drinking beer. It's a deep red pour, with a minimal head. That's the second weakest link. Just doesn't have that body of head.

Malt and tea tannin are present in the flavor profile. A bit of an earthy zip. Soft bread, not really all that sweet. Toasty and tasty. I served at cellar temperature, and it could use some coldness. The carbonation, or lack thereof, really needs work. That would help this beer reach a higher threshold as there aren't many I-Reds out there that are good

Reddish copper body topped with a nice foamy head; lots of good carbonation. Sweet malts with an ever so slight hint of cherry and honey in the aroma. Caramel and biscuit malt flavors greet you and then transition to a nice hop bitterness to finish off the sip; slight unsweetened tea-like flavor the finish, too, just like it's the style is described in the BA beer style guide. Smooth and medium-light body with a clean, semi-dry finish.

A fair enough Irish red ale; good malt character throughout with just the right touch of bitterness to balance things out, but the tea-like astringency starts dominating a tad too much as the glass drains. I don't really know if this will be a seasonal beer or not, but I'm guessing at the availability since this is a new beer and did come on scene in time for St. Patrick's Day. In any case, it's definitely worth a try.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. L: clear, dark copper, light brown. Small head fades to a small ring. Zero lacing. S: toasty malts. Barley sugar. T: good hop crispness. Raisin sweetness. A bit of peppery spice from yeast or hops. F: good carbonation adds crisp mouthfeel. O: pretty decent crafted beer.

Poured from a can into an over-sized wine glass, I'm not finding a "best by" date and I see it's a Spring brew yet I'm drinking it November.... Pours darkest brown, an earthy smell like the woods after a rain. Toasty, woody flavor with a bitter aftertaste. Medium feel, light carbonation. Quite good. I'll seek this out again.
