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.

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.

pour into pint glass deep ruby brown colors no defined smell. taste is malty dry and an after taste of tin like malt but to me most red or brown beers have that. it was a good beer. I would buy again if i was looking for that style

Decent malt forward red but the taste dies off quick. Not much else going on.
