3.9/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer mug.

Appearance: Clear, with a ruby-amber color. The back label says it has a '...rich, off-white head---some say it's "cappucino-like" ...' and I have to agree. The head looks agitated, very foamy, but subsides pleasantly leaving very little lacing on the glass. Looks good to me!

Smell: The nose is malty with floral hop undertones. Perhaps a slight touch of herb/spice influence here. Also pretty good.

Taste: The hops really shine in this beer. Good malt flavor surrounds them (the hops). Also, there is definitely some herbal influence, but I am not seasoned enough to put a direct finger on it.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation here. It froths superbly, coating every square millimeter in my mouth with delicious flavor. Aftertaste is replete with malty character which remains long after the drink is done. It's a flavor which is welcome to stick around, so that's a good thing in this case.

Drinkability: Just a bit on the bitter side for me to enjoy in excess. Perhaps that's a good thing.

As far as red lagers go, it finishes just a touch heavy, but I'd still recommend it over the macro-brewed attempt made by the Coors Empire, "Killian's Irish Red." At least Dundee's take on Irish Lager has some staying power, and for than, I commend them.

On tap in a pint glass.

A- Very clear amber color with a slim cream colored head. Some lacing, decent bubbles.

S- Rich toasted malt aroma. Grainy, a touch of alcohol.

T- Mild roast malt flavors.

M- Very smooth and clean feel. Sprite carbonation, no bite, long dry finish.

O- Not a bad Genny offering.
