Poured from bottle into new belgium tulip. Pours a deep brownish amber color with a good amount of head gone quick. Nice sweet malty aromas, a hint of rye. All (most) Saranac brews seem to have a very similar aroma to me...
Taste is really creamy sweet caramel malts. Its smooth and easy drinker. Nice session brew, and really not a bad Irish red. There isnt much wow factor but its solid and drinkable...sometimes thats all you need.

This beer is a go to for me for the fall. I don't know why Saranac doesn't make this a stand alone seasonal. The flavor is full and smooth. It had a very clean finish which is to be expected from Saranac. One of my favorites. Very malty. Hops don't really come through which is fine. Overall one of the best Irish reds out there.
