Pours dark end of golden yellow. Smells of dark bread and some hops. Taste is same. Average mouthfeel, nothing remarkable at all. Overall had the escorted breadiness of a red ale but is lighter and bread note is fainter and not as toasted as expected.

NOT a traditional Irish red! Oak/big vanilla in aroma/taste. Also some sweetness (orange peel?). Solid but couldn't drink a ton.

Draught @ Top Hops Bottle Shop: This one pours a clear amber color. There was a huge tan head on it. The aroma was good. Some oak and vanilla, as well as some malts. The taste is also very good. Caramel malt, vanilla and oak notes to the flavor. Very creamy texture.

On nitro tap at Playalinda Brix Project 4/14/17. Mahagoney colored with a thick head. Nice vanilla aroma and flavor with hints of caramel. Smooth AF.
