12 oz can from my fourth beer of the every other month club shipment. Poured into a shaker pint.

A - dark amber/ruby color with a thin creamy head. Good lacing. Body is clear when held to the light.

N - very sweet smelling with good caramel notes. Maybe a little bit of dried fruit too.

T - tasty for the style. Caramel sweetness and biscuity taste. Dry.

M - decent carbonation ans good mouthfeel. Easy drinker.

O - probably not the best summer beer (its ninety plus degrees as I drink it) but a very tasty drinkable Irish red ale.

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.
