Celtic myth has tales of kings being served Red Ale ladled from silver vats. Our Irish Red Ale is served from a can, but we believe our malt-forward brew with caramel and toffee notes is just as fit for royalty.

Can: decants a clear copper red brew with a nice 2 finger off white cap that lasts....aromas are very demure light smoke, wood, grain sweetness, grassyness...flavor is not bad but 2 dimensional lightly toasty sweet malts over grassy-woody hopping....short light clean finish...not a bad stab at a red ale for a mega brewer but it still lacks the body and flavor you get in a crafted beer

Number 8 in the small batch series from Moosehead. Served fairly cold into a tasting glass. LCBO purchase for just north of $3. Well carbonated as we had a situation when this was cracked.

Appearance - Clear auburn colored beer with a nice two fingers of frothy off-white head. Very modest staying power and no lacing to speak of.

Smell - Some grain with earthy metallic notes mixed in, hints of caramel mostly, not much else.

Taste - Initially not a lot, then a thin caramel and toffee film shines through before fading away to a thin watery finish. Metallic earthiness to close, just like the nose.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, but watery, carbonation is lacking some.

Overall - A mediocre Irish red we have here. Nothing to stand out, body is just off and the smells and flavors are forced. Wouldn't get again.

Spied this whilst picking up some cider for a recipe.

Color fits the style. Classic Irish Red aromas, sweet malts, slight air of spice.
Flavor doesn't overwhelm nor disappoint. Feel is a bit on the light side.
Overall a good take on the style. As mentioned it won't blow your socks off but still very drinkable. I'm down for having another

Clear amber with a thick, foamy head. Mild caramel malt nose. Light-medium malt body, very mild flavours. Smooth mouthfeel with a little dryness.
