Wonderful Irish red ale. It reminds me of McSorleys Red which I had years ago in New York City. It's creamy and rich and has only the slightest after taste of bitterness. It has a soft texture. I think any experienced beer palate will enjoy this beer. Personally I loved it.

As far as I still know you can only get this in Boston. I had this on my trip to Boston in '11. Can't remember the bar name but it was right by the Oyster House.

Second Favorite Sam Adams beer next to Noble Pils. If you can only get this on tap around Boston, I suggest getting it and you won't regret it.
