3.78/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clouded, dusky russet body with over an inch of off-white foam crowning the glass.

Smell: Biscuity, bready foremost, then, a hint of toast and, further down, a low note of roast with a sweetish toffee accent enveloping all of it. Small smidgen of dried herb and fruit.

Taste: Sugary toffee tossed with crumpled bread and biscuits. Scantly toasty. Small nibble of red apple. Herbal hops provide a little amount of balancing bitterness, though the ale still manages to finish out a bit sweetish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Just a half-notch above medium-bodied.

Overall: Has a more beefier character than most Irish Ales, assumably thanks to not being ruthlessly over-filtered.

On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours a murky orange-red color with a one-finger slightly off-white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of caramel malts with mild amounts of toasted malts that don't have the sweetness usually accompanying them.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Crisp and grainy caramel malt flavors kick things off. Midway through the sip a mild earthy and floral flavor enters into things and carries through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have another.

Overall this was one of the cleaner Irish Red's I remember having. Easy-drinking and well worth a shot.
