This beer pours a clear amber with a nice off-white head... has a good head retention and leaves a fair amount of lace. Aroma is lacking, with slight notes of toasted malt, and not much else. Flavor is ok, but fairly bland. Notes of caramel and a light bitterness. Over carbonated for the style... fizzed up like a soft drink. While this beer has a strong reputation, I find it difficult to believe that it hasn't suffered at the hands of Diageo. If you're looking for an Irish Red, you could do much better.
