A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high dense beige head that has very good retention properties and gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of toasted malts in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of toasted malts along with some notes of caramel, hints of malty sweetness and subtle hints of tea. Only a very slight amount of bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The lighter nature of this beer makes it very easy to drink and rather sessionable.

From notes:

12oz served in a Dogfish Head pint glass.

A – Pours a slight hazed amber with a creamy off-white that forms a nice collar.

S – Pale and caramel malts, rich graham cracker, weird tomato undertone, nutty lager yeast.

T – A big dose of fruity malt, rich lager yeast, buttery caramel, has a tart fruity bite. Some spice bread comes through.

M – Medium to full bodied, creamy feel with soft carbonation.

Great aroma but a strange buttery and tart taste. It definitely mellowed out as it warmed when the malt really came out.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

From notes:

P: Beautiful hazy tannish amber topped with an off white airy head. Has the look of rich brewed tea.

S: Earthy, grains, sweet toasted malts, floral hop aroma and a touch of cherry alcohol.

T/M: Spicy, tingling mouthfeel that is quite playful. Fresh apples, hints of bananas, timid floral hops. Balanced tea like flavor that finishes dry with a pleasant toasty malt flavor accompanied by bitter fruit peels.

O: Well rounded, easy drinking with loads of complimentary flavors. One of my favorite Irish reds so far. Will definitely revisit.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light golden brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lager yeast, caramelized malts, some hops and a touch of spice.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast and a hearty malt character. Then some sweet flavors of caramel, honey and fruit come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer to drink for a while but there are better ones in the style.

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a toffee caramel red. An off-white head sits atop that slowly dissipates, leaving some sticky lacing. The smell is very malty, with a slight caramel overtone. The taste is equally malty with caramel sweetness, but there is a dry hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, but very drinkable.

Overall, nothing spectacular, nothing bad. Just a good red lager to throw back on St. Patrick's Day. I've had a few Dundee seasonals, and they're all pretty decent. Add this one to the list. Not perfect, but good for a saturday afternoon celebration.
