Poured into a 12 oz frosted pint Glass. There is the first mishap- anyone that knows beer knows not to pour an Irish Ale into a frosted mug. This beer poured a hazy orange/reddish color. Very little to no head and very poor head retention. Low Carbonation. No lacing. All of these are a common theme amongst Buffalo Brewing Beers. The aroma smelled of a weak amount of roasted malt and hops. The drinkability was good because it was so light and had mostly no body. Good Lawn Mower Beer. The beer was drinkable and refreshing but not much aroma or taste to speak of. Disappointed.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of sweet malt up front and then some slight hops. Fits the style of an Irish Red Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp with a low carbonation level. Tastes of an odd fruit flavor (grape?), then some sweet malt, slight hops, and the finish is again the grape flavor along with a noticeable dryness. Overall, this was not a very good beer and I don't recommend.
