St. John's pours a deep, hazy amber red with a fluffy tan head. Lacing was on par, while retention was a bit low.

The aroma was spot on with the style. Roasted caramel malts, toffee, and a touch of sweetness, mixed with earthy European hops. There was no alcohol smell, which is to be expected from a 4.90% ABV beer.

The taste followed the aroma nicely. A touch of sweetness that gets quickly overpowered by roasted caramel and toffee flavors. A little fruitiness from the hops comes through, working nicely with the malty body for a smooth taste.

As for mouthfeel, again, everything was right on par. A medium, malty body with good, crisp carbonation made for a smooth mouthfeel, not too thin, not too thick.

4.01/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: dark deep mahogany color with a 1" head that lasted a long time. Plenty of lace sticks to the glass.

Smell: loads of malt sweetness and some fruitiness rise from the glass.

Taste: big bready malt presence. Caramel, toffee, some hints of dark fruit sweetness, and some floral hop tones come through late.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp at the start, smoother at the finish. Short lasting aftertaste.

Overall: this is a good example of an Irish Red as it is not over hopped like so many others. Can drink a few of these in a session.

Serving type: on-tap
