Decided to try something new. Picked up a six pack at a local liquor store. I enjoyed this very much for a pale ale. My friends asked me what it taste like and the best thing I can describe it as is a mixture of killians red and any normal IPA. I will buy this again.

I had this on-tap in a pint glass at the Irish Exit in New York.

Appearance: amber orange hue with light effervescence and an unfortunately minimal head. Color is good, though.

Smell: sweet malt with a light fruitiness and lightly citrusy hop aroma. Actually pretty well composed.

Taste: caramelly sweet malt with a fruity, citrusy hop character. There's also a hint of berry and herbal character. It is working for me! Not bad, but there's some diacetyl butteriness that gets in the way of really enjoying it.

Mouthfeel: medium to medium-light body with a moderate carbonation and a decent creaminess. Not too bad!

Overall: relatively tasty and drinkable. I could probably quaff quite a few of these, although the diacetyl does bother me a little bit.
