Poured from a 12 oz. can. And yes, you guessed it. That can reached my hand by way of the legendary woodychandler. Has a pretty deep amber color with a 1 inch head. Smell is malty, caramel. Taste is also malty, hops are present, caramel, very refreshing and smooth. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a very easy drinking beer that I could consume all night.

A: This poured a clear dark mahogany with chunky sediment.
S: It smelled like dry roasted barley with a little earthy copper hops.
T: It tasted like earthy copper and nutty malt, with a little roasted barley. It had a clean dry and somewhat bitter aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with some carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a decent Irish red ale. Nothing exciting, but very traditional scent and taste and body. It had a clean and mellow finish, so it was really easy to drink. Not bad to try once, but I prefer something more interesting.
