Shared by preismj, big thanks Matt! Pours a deep clear copper with tan head. Nose is initially pretty hoppy for style with notes of erthy and pine bitterness. Then comes a big time malt presence with heavy caramel, toffee, and a hint of roast. Taste is a touch hoppy up front and develops into a nice malt bomb. Plenty of caramel, bread crust, and toffee on the palate with a dry bready finish. Mouthfeel is moderate with appropriate carbonation. A nice Irish Red!

Notes from 7/2012

Slightly hazy deep amber, a bit more intense red than a typical amber. Quite fruity in the aroma and taste. Only a slight hop tinge on the front end of the taste, but malt quickly takes over. Some caramel malt present. Pretty tasty, but nothing too special. But I seem to only like hoppier ambers.

First had: on tap at Funky Buddha, Boca Raton, FL

Basic beer, a staple at the brewery. Dark reddish-brown pour, hazy, with a finger or so of frothy off-white head that retained well and left some lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malts, toasted grains, caramel, notes of fruit salad. More of the same in the taste, sweet caramel malts, toasted bread, hints of apple and pear, nice hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Nothing ground-breaking, but a solid, simple option that goes down easy.

Served on tap in a pint glass

A - Gorgeous bronze hue with generous 2 finger ecru head with great retention and crude like sticky lacing, awesome.

S - Complex malt character, with a touch of floral and herbal hop notes

T - Rich malt flavors though surprisingly less sweet than many in the style, earthy, floral moderately bitter hops, savory.

M - Medium body, low carbonation. Chewy, gritty.

O - Nice hops balance, I due think it would be nicer with a touch more sweetness. Pretty rad name, though I'm sure the remake won't have the 80's cheese that makes this title awesome.
