By definition this approximated an Irish Red Ale in aroma and taste .
It lacks much in the way of red colour however being a lot darker than others of this style I have tried.
It is toffee like but dry enough to be very drinkable.
It has a lovely fresh almost sparkly mouthfeel that sits will as a seasonal festival beer.
There were some roasted grains at the finish which also balamced and moderated the toffee malts .

A - Dark mahogany with ruby red highlights when held up to light. A few centimetres of off white head.
S - Sweet toffee is there just like the bottle says but there is also a strong green apple aroma coming through.
T - Pretty much the same as the smell but with more cloying sweetness.
M - Pretty full mouthfeel with low carbonation.
D - OK but only just. I'd like to try this years batch fresh. I hope it's better than this as I think these guys are doing a great job for a fairly young brewery & wouldn't want this to reflect on them too much. Good on them for giving a style rarely seen in Australia a shot.
