A - Clear dark orange with two fingers of thick white head with thick lacing.
S - Sweet caramels, light roasted malt, earthy notes.
T - Smooth caramel, a little toasted quality, grainy, a light earthy and herbal hop tone.
M - Smooth and actually kinda refreshing, not overly sweet.
O - Actually a decent red ale, not too sweet, moderately balanced.

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.
