I agree with the Alstrom Brothers' description, an all around exceptionally well balanced Irish Red Ale. No one particular traditional red ale ingredient dominates this ale's taste or smell. Outstanding job Thomas Creek Brewers! One of the best Irish Reds I've had and I look forward to another one.

Though its an ale, i dont find the brew hoppy. As a non-hoppy guy, a pleasant surprize. Malty, caramel, rich complex taste. Nice creamy feel. I really enjoyed this brew and will look for more when i get home.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Thomas Creek brewery in Greenville, SC. The appearance is a reddish orange color with a small white head. The aroma is slight malt and grains. The taste is toasted malt and is slightly bitter.
