look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice ruby hue, with little carbonation. As it is, no lace, either. Low on presentation.

Nose is malty sweet, with hints of caramel and toffee.

Taste is malty, too, with more of the toffee and caramel taking precedence. A touch of citrus hops comes in to round off the finish. A solid, if unremarkably average brew here.

Serving type: bottle

Had this on tap at Brothers in South Bend. The appearance is amber but watery. It looks a bit like tea. The aroma has a light caramel to it. The mouthfeel is watery and the taste is more like a mass produced light amber than a micro brew. I am very dissappointed overall.

Had on tap at Four Horsemen.

A- Pours a deep amber red color. One finger light tan head head shows low retention leaving light whisps of foam on the beer. Spotty lace throughout the entire drink.

S- Light toasted malt in the front of the aroma. There is a sweet smelling underlying malt in there along with a light bittering hop. I do pick up a small lacto like infection that gives off a light sour note. My only problem with the aroma (sourness aside) is that it is way too light and you have to bury your nose to get any aroma.

T- Toasted malts up front with a underlying light bitter hop bite. This gives way to more toasted malts with some sweetness underlying it. The flavor fades a little bit and becomes a little watery with big hints of lacto in there. This sourness rides to the end with some toasted malts and ends with a light hop crispness. There is a underlying grainy texture toward the ending too that mixes a little with the light alcohol.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is a little weak for the style. Toasted malts and hints of lacto are left on the palate. Aftertaste is toasted malts, cereal grains, light alcohol, and hint of hops. Flavors were balanced the best so far in this beer but still a little watery. A strange sour lacto flavor is given in the middle to ending of this beer which is its only off flavor...although a big one. Medium alcohol drying on the palate.

O- This beer I guess won an award. I don't see how. The off flavor is very distinct and while not off putting doesn't belong in there. I didn't detect any diacetyl in this beer like the others which is a good start. A watery version of an Irish Red that should show a little more to it. Nice try guys but still not quite right.
