3.29/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown...

Poured a mahogany brown colour... Creamy tan head poured quite thick then faded slowly to thin layer... very light carbonation... some decent wispy lacing...

Aroma - Nice strong caramel maltiness, some light fruitiness (figs and raisins), biscuity hints, light molasses hints, some nice nutty sweetness, light peppery hops, faint toasted bread notes...

Taste - Lots of caramel maltiness, some light spicy hops, light nutty sweetness, maybe a faint hint of nutmeg and cinnamon, some biscuitiness, some light prune and fig notes...

Feel - Nice and smooth... Medium bodied... Very, very quaffable - a nice session beer...

Overall - A decent bog standard Irish Red Ale... worth a try

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts and grains. Taste is malts, caramel, some grains, smooth and refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall makes for a fine session or warm weather beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Yard House in Northridge, CA.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, toast, and nut aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet toast, earth, and nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid toast and nut qualities all around.
