A: Deep reddish brown with small head

S: I get some malty sweetness, a little fruity, cherryness

T: Rich malty sweetness gives way to a fruity, cherry flavor in the middle of the taste, light sweetness in the aftertaste.

M: Medium, good carbonation

O: A decent beer but that weird cherry flavor in the middle throws it off a little for me.

A very drinkable beer that I'll have a couple times a year. Nothing special, but better than a few other irish reds out there. A decent Sam year-round.
