Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Lightly hazed copper amber color. Two fingers of tan frothy/creamy head. Retention is good and a short, spotty ring of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Toasty malts with a strong caramel backbone. Notes of toffee, plum and fig fruitiness, and black currants. There's a slight, slight vegetal component, but it works with the brew.

3.75 T: Taste is like the nose. Plenty going on. Big toastiness. Bigger caramel. Toffee, plum, fig, currant. Cleaner than the nose, but still just a hint of off-flavor. Still, this is tasty.

3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess and quite smooth.

3.5 D: Tasty beer. Just a slight off-flavor. If that was addressed, this would be stellar.

Reviewing from a can at cellar temp. The beer is a clear amber color with minimal beige head that recedes fairly quickly after the pour.
Aroma is some caramel and grainy malt, also fairly bready and a bit sweet. A bit of floral hop character.
First sip reveals an average body with very fine rolling carbonation. The flavor is actually fairly sweet with some darker fruit and red grape mixing with the anticipated caramel and grainy malt.
Finish is kind of dry and leaves a bit of a bitter hop bite on the finish. Beer is very easy to drink even if it isnt overly complex. Not a bad beer to enjoy a few of and not have to think too deeply about while you enjoy them.

Can from MrBarleywine, thanks for the opportunity!
Clear deep reddish brown color with a tightly bubbled tan head that dissipates quickly. Heavy toffee and caramel maltiness with an earthy edge to counter. Rich sweet caramel maltiness with earthy and bits of oxidation obviously present. Medium to thin body moderate carbonation. Middle of the road Irish ale with a bit of an oxygen problem.
