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.
