3.44/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark copper, almost brown with about a finger-width cream head. Lighting was a bit rough, but it appeared a touch hazy.
Aroma: Sweet malts, definite caramel presence, maybe a tinge of booze at the end.
Taste: Mild caramel flavors are the most present part of the taste, though there is also some sweet malt flavor. It finishes with a bitter dryness that leaves the palate begging for another sip. This beer is extremely drinkable.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, medium-bodied with a long dry, bitter finish
Overall: This is a solid flagship beer for North Country. This is not one of my favorite styles, as it is not overly-complex in flavor or aromas, but this is a sturdy version of the Irish Red Ale. I'd prefer this over the commercially available imports (ie Murphys, Smithwicks) any day. The dry finish is a desirable effect.

Serving type: on-tap

A big thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is light, a bit of malts. Taste is malts, some caramel, a bit of sweetness, easy drinking and refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

3.13/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Six-pack dropped off by son, no date, can into imperial pint at 50 degrees
Faint malt aroma
Head average (4 cm), off-white, frothy, mostly (rapidly) diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Lacing scant
Body clear, medium reddish amber
Flavor begins lightly malty, no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl; just blandly sweet
Ends with a slight sour note
Palate light to medium, watery, carbonation soft.

A nice looking beer which I’ve also had on tap. Not much flavor, so probably a good beer for non-beer drinkers. The best thing about this beer is that a portion of the proceeds go to the local fire department, so worth picking up a sixer occasionally.
