2.94/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Deep red amber glass holds a modest cover of foam that leaves some lacing.

Aroma: Fruity, some classic British Pint yeast notes, a flash of adjunct, corm maybe?

Taste: Caramel toffee sweetness fades too quickly into a somewhat musty damp malt base. A slight solvent in the finish goes a bit airplane glue.

Feel: Medium body, medium carbonation, some oil in the finish.

Overall: The solvent aspect takes a lot away from a beer that had potential.

Pours a nice red brown color with an off-white head that doesn't last long but leaves nice lacing. Taste is somewhat like a light caramel that hints at something darker and richer, but never shows its face. Disappointing. Smell is typical of most British ales. Has a lighter mouthfeel and is relatively refreshing. Overall this is something I'd drink without complaint but wouldn't go out and buy myself. Cheers!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Clear brown with two fingers of off white head that lasts about five minutes but leaves a fine amount of lace. Smell is bready with some noble hop aroma. Taste is mineral water sweet bready malt and just a touch of noble hop herbal bitterness.
Mouthfeel is light to medium and carbonation is fairly low but to be expected for the style.
Very much a British beer style. Very tasty beer and one I would have again.

L: Pours a rich blood red with a fair amount of head that becomes a very thin lace. The beer is clear with a couple carbonation bubbles. Good color and clarity, but lacking a bit in head and carbonation.

S: Very sweet caramel malt and raspberry notes jump out at you. It is quite fragrant, but overwhelmingly sweet and I find that off-putting. There are some raisin and bready malt notes underneath, but it smells more like an idiosyncratic fruit beer than an Irish Red.

T: Light and bready up front. Fruit and caramel notes coming in on the body to mix in with some slightly roasted notes. The bready flavor remains surprisingly prominent all the way through the finish. As it goes down it leaves one unsatisfied with a finish of watery bread and some lingering caramel raspberry on the palate. There is some good complexity in the body, but overall disappointing.

F: Zesty and bready, but very light and watery. I'd like a bit more thickness in an Irish Red.

O: Overall, this really doesn't have what I want from an Irish Red or a fruit beer. It's much too watered down to really enjoy a blend of raspberry and classical red ale notes. There is some good flavor on the tongue and a brief moment where you can taste raspberry and caramel notes coming together to make a good beer, but it isn't sufficient to make this beer worthwhile for the mediocrity and wateriness that makes up the majority of your drinking experience.

This beer was poured from a 12oz bottle into a Blind Pig mug and enjoyed at apx. 55F.
