I tried this at the brewery on Valentine's Day. $5 for a pint glass.

The beer poured a clear brick red color with a 1-finger creamy beige head on top. Retention was good, as was the lacing.

Pleasant caramel/toffee smell.

Bready malt flavor with with some caramel and toffee sweetness. There's a slight burnt taste as well. Earthy hop bitterness is mild, but noticeable.

Light to medium body with moderate to medium carbonation.

Overall, this is a very tasty Irish red.

Fittingly this is the March beer of the Month at Pints in Elmhurst. Served in its own marked glass, the beer is a chill hazed garnet with a beige head.

Nose of grains, a bit a caramel and hint of tobacco.

The taste is earthy in a good way. Lots of crystal/caramel malts and some toffee. lightly toasted grains and bagel round out the taste. I would like to see a little move bitterness for balance.

The mouth is workman like and gets the job down. I have had this one now three times, so I guess it falls under the "occasional" category for me.

Served in a tumbler.

Tommy James would be proud (no word yet on the Shondells)... Anyway, this stuff pours a murky rust topped by a half-finger of glowing tan foam. The nose comprises tobacco, earthy greens, and a bit of blood orange peel. The taste continues the earthy vibe, but increases the blood orange ever-so-slightly and adds in a firm backbone of caramel. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally fluid feel. Overall, an okay Irish red, one that focuses on earth and spice, possibly partially to its detriment.
