look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into a Sam Adams Glass.

Appearance: Reddish amber in color. Off White head that last only about a minute.

Smell: Hops with some citrus notes, maybe some roasted malts.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Lighter bodied and smooth, well balanced. Bitter hops and some sugars, not overwhelming.

Overall: Not a big fan of "Irish Reds", but this one was enjoyable, it was better than I expected.
