look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Rich, dark-leaning, amber. Less than clear with loads of bubbles that never stop. Small off-white head that settles to ring that stays but only leaves a bit of lace at the top of the glass.

S: rich, sweet malts, some bread crust, some toffee / caramel, hint of roast, hint of bready yeast note. Estery hints. Some light herbal hops and a super light hint of some muddled background citrus. Okay for strength.

T: Malty rich & sweet with some toasty bread and light bread crust notes. Soft touches of toffee and hints at darker roast (even a very faint chocolate note). Hops fall just short of balancing, but provide lots of character. Fair bitterness with background herbal, muted & muddled citrus, earthy / woody hops with a sort of tea-like note that lingers in the finish. Hops increase as you go. Super faint metallic & tart note (starting to sour in can?).

M: Medium body with softly balanced & finely textured carbonation. Almost a bit smooth. Fairly neutral finish, though it grows increasingly drying as it is consumed.

D: A rich, malt focused Irish Red. Doesn’t depend over much on caramel and sweetness, as some do, but has a fair amount of complexity to the malts and a bit of hops as well. Not really a quaffer (too much going on), but nice and pleasant drinking.

A: came in a pint sized can. pours dark amber color (pretty much the color of ice tea if ice tea was carbonated slightly), its almost completely opaque. Keeping if from a higher rating in this category is head. The head is a tan white color poured about a fingernail, but shrunk in a minute or so, to being just around the rim with a few clusters making interesting patterns in the center, no lacing. Very small carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom.

S: smell rating might be a little off because people were smoking when i tried this. sweet and malty. Carmel hints.

T: rich with sweet malts. Finishes with water on ur tongue and it sounds gross but its not... buttery. A bit too sweet.

M: mid-thick body, low carbonation. feels great in your mouth...thats what she said.

O: probably my favorite new beer ive tried this year. Not only is it delicious, but it very inexpensive (going for around 11 bucks for a six pack of pint sized cans). Hard to find outside Royal Oak but if you can get your paws on it, please please please do your self and favor and pick one up!

Way better than Killian's. Drank a 4 pack today Golfing, and I was playing great! Afterwards grabbed a sixer of pints, go get some now!

Poured from the can a deep reddish-brown color with a thin tan head. A film of creamy lacing coated the glass.

The aroma was quite malty with light berry and floral notes.

The taste was fresh berries, tropical fruit and sweet caramel malts.

Medium bodied and slightly dry with a moderate carbonation.

A quite tasty and enjoyable Irish Red Ale.

16 oz can in pint glass

A - Amber with slight head. Thin foam throughout. Cloudy with appearance of both suspended yeast and slowly rising bubbles of carbonation.

S - Lovely malt forward toasty nose and an accompanying sweetness with hints of flowery hop coming behind. Biscuity quality.

T - Slightly bready and nicely toasted with interesting estery qualities coming through (some floral, some light fruit - perhaps blueberry?) balanced very well with mild hops giving an earthy character. Very smooth clean finish.

M - Not nearly as carbonated as the appearance led me to believe. Flat and medium bodied, very smooth.

O - This beer kind of made me think "What is somebody made a much better homebrew version of Killian's?" - certainly not the best example of the style I've had, but quite good and worth a try.

Ooooh. Nice. I like this one. Was taking it slowly and pondering the look, the fragrance...trying to be dilligent about it. Then I tasted it. Who cares about subtle nuances. This is a good beer. And it's a style not often seen. Very nice vibrant flavor that delivers an interesting almost vanilla toned floral thing, in an irish ale kinda way. If you've had several of this style, you will hear what I'm saying.

I was in the Grand Trunk Pub and a customer was suggesting AXL because it's a good beer and the brewer is "fucking hot", or some shit like that. Well, frankly, I don't care how hot you are; the beer needs to be good.

Boobies and schnazzy cans aside, this is a nice beer. If you see it, you should definitely try it.
