About what you would expect - nothing “off” or offensive, just middle-of-the-road and pedestrian. Malt is a tad sweet and it tastes more like an amber laber than a traditional irish red, needs more toasted malt to balance it out and the hops are bland and don’t add anything

Color was a bit off for a red. Other than that a nice beer nothing special.

on-tap at Hunger-n-Thirst, Lancaster, PA

A- looks the part. amber with heavy red hues, and a nice light khaki head. could use more lacing.

S- some bready malts, maybe some caramel, a earthy, slightly citric hop is there.

T- taste is pretty nice, and a standard, straightforward Irish Red. A quick smack of caramel, some dry breadyness, with a very light citric/eathy hop.

M- Medium, a touch dry on the finish, but I get the slightly metallic note I get on a lot of Sly Fox brews.

0- A nice St. Patty's Day beer, and a step up from something like Smithwick's.
