look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Two fingers of red hued head with a copper body. Looks good in the tall glass.
Big barnyard smell, wet grain. Not bad, but a little different.
A dry malt/grain taste, mild bitterness. Barley dominates.
Crisp, medium body.
It's fine enough, but I'm not in love with it.

Appearance - Pours a deep burnt orange color with a finger width off-white head. Retention is piss poor, fizzing away like soda, and the lacing... what lacing?

Smell - Sweet,deep caramel malt, a touch of toffee, some earthy tones.

Taste - Follows the nose. A wave of deep, sweet caramel notes from start to finish. Faint hints of coffee on the back end. Hops are hidden, but do well to keep this somewhat balanced.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Somewhat smooth and creamy. Decently carbonated bite, despite the discouraging appearance. Finishes semi-dry.

Overall - A really good Irish red. Deeply malted caramel flavors, but not overly sweet. Fairly simple, but delicious.

Red, yes, but this beer is more of a thick orange-brown-red. The head blows up as I pour, but settles quickly. Eventually it's a smallish cap of orange-tinted tannish head, then a foam, and eventually that fades as well. There's some lacing left, but not a whole lot.
The aroma shows a sweet, bready malts backbone with yeast with a mix of caramel, toffee and dark fruits in the sweetness. A little bit of green tea is detectable in there, like in a tea-based energy drink, but natural.
This is a malty, malty beer, majorly bready with lots of yeast. Pumpernickel without any of the sourdough aspect is seems to be the foundation. It's got lots of toffee, caramel, and dark fruits, as in the nose, with an almost alcoholic aspect in that it's got the sweetness without the heat. The hops are there, light, underneath the malts, adding a bit more flavor with balance. There's a little spiciness in the front that gets lighter as it goes. The sweetness just gets a bit cloying, and this is a good beer otherwise.
The feel is good, rich and thick, full-bodied (especially for a red) with a bit of a crisp bite and plenty of smoothness.

Pours a copper penny color. A little white head.

Aroma is pure malt - sweet, crystal malt, a hint of maple.

Soft entry is a bit watery. Simple sweet malts. Some complex maltiness tries to come in mid-mouth - but then fades. The mouthfeel is simple, watery. I'm actually a bit surprised there is no trace of hops given it's Moylan's - but they remain true to the style and description.

Nothing bad here, a decent sessionable ale without a lot of distinction.

22 bomber.
-Deep copper color.
-Medium head
-Aroma very pretty biscuit and caramel with some fruit in there somewhere, definitely on the sweeter side of smells.
-Taste was either biscuit/caramel with a bit of fruit rolling after wards, but clips off with a dry aftertaste.
-This thing has a pretty big malty sweet body.
-Mouth feel isn't too carbonated, the biscuit taste is predominate.
It's probably a good drink for those who are really into the sweeter/malty/biscuty beers, but I was hoping for more complexity. A good beer for those who like their stuff more biscuit and caramel rather than hoppy. But balanced, it is not.

Pour is almost like an amber. Smells like overly dry cereal grains. And it even tastes like dry grains. Honestly tastes like a grain mill. They didnt figure out balance in this one. Its so overly dry, its hard to get over. Its honestly not a bad beer, if it wasnt for all those grains.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A- hazy copper appearance with a thin head that dissipates.

S- yeast, dried fruits, caramel, malt.

T- apricots, mild coffee flavors, dried fruits, and maple.

M- mild carbonation, alcohol is subtle but present, sweet and medium body.

O- I liked this beer. I want to try it again and since I'm so close to Moylan's I wanted to check out their location.
