2.68/5 rDev -24.5%
12 oz bottle. Pours copper with small, short-lived, fluffy white head. Aroma is of bread crust, herbal hops and some caramel. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal, earthy hop, bready malt and caramel combine on the palate. Finish is long, bitter, and astringent. I would not buy this brew again.

12 oz bottle – Exp Date April. Poured into glass. Head on the beer pours with a slightly tan hue. The color is a deep and dark red and clear. The aroma is mild, but roasted malt and herbal hop is present. The first taste is a balance between malt and hop with a significant roasted finish. The beer coats the palate but finishes quite dry. Certainly different than most red ales, but for an Irish Red seems appropriate.

*I think the Bros rating this beer exceptional is too generous*
A- Very cloudy. Has the appearance of beef stock. I don't think I've ever seen a Irish style Red look this cloudy. Very small head that doesn't stick around. Surprisingly sediment
is floating around in the glass.
S- Roasted malts! Sweet and caramel notes. Faint hops.
T- Tastes like a cross between an Irish Red and an IPA. The bitterness is very present. The Carmel malts are also present. Has a sour flavor as well. Carbonation dances on the tongue, although I can't see it in the glass. Just a weird Irish Rd Ale! I think a 3 is a modest rating on taste, but to me this is unique for an Irish Red Ale.
M- Kind of rough to be honest. Sticky and medium in feel. I cannot suck this back in the spring. Nope!
Overall, this was a disappointment. A hoopy Irish Red is not what I want in the spring, nor is a kind of heavy and sticky body/mouthfeel what I want when the weather is getting nice. I wouldn't choose this at anytime of the year. I'd rather Newport Storm bring back the Summer IPA and replace this beer with that!
