Red amber lager with a white head on top. Rich with smells of malts and grains. It tasted like how it smelled but watered down. Not a bad beer for a decent price.

Pours a deep amber. Light toast on nose and not much else. Taste is of very bland and muttled malt and dough. A little heavy on mouthfeel. Nothing about this beer stands out. It is bellow average and forgettable.

L: Clear Amber red color with a medium head and no lacing.

S: Not much of an aroma, some toasted brown bread and a little hop. Not very enticing.

T: Sweet malt, some toasted bread and not much else, not much flavor.

F: Medium body, seems to have too much carbonation.

O: A very bland Irish red.

Deep amber-tawny color. Got a great beer smell from the head right from the git-go. Smooth. Very drinkable by itself but also pairs up nicely with a variety of foods. This is a go-to beer for me. Good to have on hand at anytime.
