3.08/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A-Deep copper wiht a thin light tan head that left spotty lacing.

S-Heavy sweet caramel malt with a faint suggestion of hops coming through.

T-Malt, malt and more sweet caramel malt. Then a passing hint of earthy hops. Not what I like in a red ale.

M-Medium body with a long lasting, almost cloying malty sweetness. Is very smooth and "round" feeling.

D-For a malty red ale this is spot on, but for me I am not a fan. I like hops in my red and would consider this an Irish Red not an American version. Not a bad beer, just not one I want to drink much of.
