12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date. Big foamy off white head, good retention. Bright reddish copper in color.
Clean caramel malt aroma, hint of hop and buttery diacetyl.
Water caramel malt palate in a moderate body and medium carbonation. Mild on the hops with not much of a finish other than a lingering toasted grain husk flavor.
Decent at best, taste mass-produced and to light on the palate. Many American brewers make a better Irish style red ale.
