3.43/5 rDev -3.4%
Appearance: Lovely reddish brown hue and soft carbonation, excellent looking red ale. Slightly off white small head.
Aroma: Brown Bread, Caramel, Earthy Hops and Very Soft Tones of Molasses
Body: High, Low body overall. Clean taste with a mild earthy/dirty hops tone and bitterness.
Taste: Nice overall flavor for a red ale, the caramel and brown bread notes began the ale which mellowed out and blended with the earthy hops flavor. The bitterness play it's part more in the middle of the ale and blended down towards the end bringing up a sweet cereal grain sweetness to finish.
Overall not a bad red all, it has it's own character and is one of the nicest traditional red ales I've had, very solid and should be searched out by all red ale fans, Cheers!

16oz on tap from Rí Rá Irish Pub
A – Good looking beer, nicely red in the glass with a cream colored one finger head. Lacing stays great throughout.
S – Mostly subdued, some sweet caramel notes and a earthy almost peat note as well.
T – Nicely malty, though balanced as well with just the right amount of hops.
M – Refreshing, easy to drink, carbonation levels are in line for the style.
O – Good beer for the style, has a little bit more complexion than some others in its range.
