No need to re-describe what others have noted. Gravity is moderate, certainly not watery. Tastes of caramel and a hint of toffee and bread. Clearly a malty beer. Finish has been described as dry. My taste buds cannot confirm. I taste a smooth malty finish leaving me wanting for more.

Very good. Malty, slightly sweet, but balanced with a slightly hoppy finish. Not an amazing example of an Irish Red, but a great option for being somewhat readily available.

Brown amber color is very clear. Off white head and lacing don't last. Smell is sweet bread. Taste is Initially very malty, some maple syrup, then a little dry bite.
