Poured into a clear mug.
The appearance was a rugged semi-dark burnt orange almost mahogany to red color with a finger's worth of quickly dieing head that didn't leave any lace.
The aroma had some clean nutty to caramel malts up front flowing into some earthy to grassy hops - somewhat bitter, yet mild.
The flavor presented a solid sweetness, nice and clean like a good Irish red ale should be. Mild aftertaste of the nuts and caramel.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt nice. Finish was brisk with the nuts and caramel.
Overall, for the most part, it's pretty solid and I can tell it was well brewed. But I wouldn't mind a higher level of earthiness and some herbal qualities poking out to make this a superior Irish red ale.
