A: Less than one finger, almost white head. The beer itself is deep copper in color
S: Sweet malts, some fall honey, and caramelized sugars.
T: Sweet malt up front, which is quickly balanced by a sharp, but not too strong, hop bitter that finishes with a subtle citrus and honey flavor.
M: Medium body and carbonation, which I suspect is normal for the style.
O: I believe this to be a high quality example of the style. It is at least to my liking, although I am not a huge fan of Irish red ales or red ales in general. This brew has a solid malt backbone that carries it through a decent amount of complexity for the style. I wouldn't hesitate to pick this up the next time I get a rare hankering for an Irish red.
