Pours a beautiful brown see-through. Aroma is light with sweet malts. Taste is ok with malt prevelance and a little bread. There is a overpowering doughy bread taste as it goes on. Overall, ok balance but seems a touch heavy on the cool sweetness.

Pours a dark brownish red color with an off-white head with solid retention and lacing. The aroma is sweet malt, plums, raisins, and dark bread. The taste is very sweet up front with a good dose of malts and slightly toasted grain and a lingering sweetness well into the finish. Overall, not a huge fan of this one. The sweetness is overpowering for my taste buds, would have prefered a drier finish to this one.

The color is a rich barley brown with a tinge of auburn and a thick but fleeting head.

The nose is quite inviting for fans of malt with a subtle burnt grain. This has touches of nut, barley, roasted grains and kilned malts.

The flavor is a tad sweet with a nutty, caramel and toffee. It actually reminds me of Fiddle Faddle, a toffee coated popcorn with peanuts. As it warms it begins to lose flavor but it has a decent roasted grain and barley taste.

Im sure it's vogue to pan this beer but I found it to be rather flavorful and a decent "Macro" brewed Irish Red.
