Draught @ Brewpub. this one pours a very dark amber that is almost brown. There was a thin tan head that left a little lacing. It has a good nose. Some grain, earthiness and subdued malts. The taste is also good. There is a touch of bitterness, grains, malts and a slight caramel sweetness in the finish. Nice.

Received a gift growler from my mother-in-law. How cool is that? This was her favorite among the options available the day she visited the brewery.

Their website description is helpful and is a good read: http://www.redwingbrewing.com/our_craft_beers.htm.

Poured into an imperial pint glass.

Steady pour yielded a two-finger head. Nice head retention with a dark red -- almost brown -- color.

Neutral smell -- spring water? A note of chocolate? Not much there.

Taste -- good malt presence up-front. Some biscuity presence with a nice hop presence in the back end. Dry finish. Good balance.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, full-bodied up front; sensation fades toward the end.

This Irish Red is accurate to style and is a solid creation. Very drinkable -- this pairs well with college football and a cool, rainy fall evening. Good work by the Red Wing crew!
