A - Clear copper color with a thin head and not much lacing.
S - Some grainy malt along with a little floral hops, but diacytal is the primary aroma. Not good.
T - A nice caramel sweetness up front, with a slight hop bitterness. But an unappealing metallic taste and buttery flavor overpowers any pale ale characteristics.
M - Creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. The best thing about this beer by far.
D - I'm a fan of Irish reds, but this was just simply a bad beer. I wondered if I got a old bottle, but it was well within the freshness date. I have no desire to try another to see if this was a fluke. Go for a Sam Adams Irish Red for a much more solid beer at a similar price point.
