Textbook Irish Red. Malt forward, nice caramel note driven through the back. Just enough hops to balance but not stand out. Smooth and delish!

Pours an SRM of about 14, nice butter colored head, sticks around awhile. 80 percent opaque.

Lots of rich copper malts and apple skins on the nose, with a hint of caramel sweetness and Bartlett pear.

Flavor brings that apple out front, swirling with a sweet caramel malt body and some polite hop juice. The finish is pure roasted barley. Fruity esters remain on the palate.

Feel is light to medium, mild carbonation and a semi dry finish.

Overall i think ill be grabbing a sixer for my band to try. This beer is SERIOUS.

I would say the weakest link in this beer would be the feel. It has a malty body, but not chewy and a bit flat. A zing in the end helps, but it just feels thin.

With that, it is an easy drinking beer. It's a deep red pour, with a minimal head. That's the second weakest link. Just doesn't have that body of head.

Malt and tea tannin are present in the flavor profile. A bit of an earthy zip. Soft bread, not really all that sweet. Toasty and tasty. I served at cellar temperature, and it could use some coldness. The carbonation, or lack thereof, really needs work. That would help this beer reach a higher threshold as there aren't many I-Reds out there that are good

Poured from a can into an over-sized wine glass, I'm not finding a "best by" date and I see it's a Spring brew yet I'm drinking it November.... Pours darkest brown, an earthy smell like the woods after a rain. Toasty, woody flavor with a bitter aftertaste. Medium feel, light carbonation. Quite good. I'll seek this out again.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. L: clear, dark copper, light brown. Small head fades to a small ring. Zero lacing. S: toasty malts. Barley sugar. T: good hop crispness. Raisin sweetness. A bit of peppery spice from yeast or hops. F: good carbonation adds crisp mouthfeel. O: pretty decent crafted beer.
