Pours reddish brown with a solid head that fades slowly and leaves lacing a quarter-way down the glass. Smells of roasted malts and light caramel come from the head. Tastes consists of dominant malts with a light spice and caramel note before a barely hopped finish. Taste is slightly sweet upfront but balanced for the style. Medium body with medium carbonation that is just a little bit creamy. Good red that isn't spectacular but definitely solid.

Beautiful red ale with a tall, thick head. The aroma is malty, with some biscuit and toffee scents. Some background herbal hops. The flavor is more intense than expected, for the style...balanced and drinkable. Medium-to-full in body. Nice.

A: Pours a deep reddish brown with a short whitish head, some noticeable lacing.

S: Mostly sweet malt, some caramel and toffee, not really a ton going on here.

T: Malty with very little hoppy character...some caramel, a bit of spice, but otherwise not a ton.

M: Light to medium bodied and clean with low carbonation and bitterness.

O: Meh, I don't drink the style often so I'm not the best judge but I didn't particularly care for this. Overly malty to me and doesn't really do much for me.

Pours a clear, dark brown/red color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of slight hop, sweet malt, slight dry hop, hint of pale malt, and a hint of spice. Fits the style of an Irish Red Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of pale malt, hint of hop, slight caramel malt, and a hint of spice. Overall, good appearance and aroma, but the body is dominated by the malts so that the blend is overly sweet.
