a good standard easy drinking red beer. branded as an irish style, this seems distinctively Canadian to me. a lovely darker copper amber color with a tall lacing head that would get even higher marks if it lasted more than a minute or so. a pleasant mix of malts, less dry irish red than American style amber to me, with a touch of earthiness, a bit of smoke, some caramel sweetness, and a peculiar yet enjoyable nutty element. the carbonation is great, tons of little micro bubbles instantly refreshing me and getting my palate ready for a big afternoon and evening of beer consumption here. this is an all day beer at a lower abv and such a quick finish for the style. a much better than average brew here, impressive for a Molson coors offering, and one id be happy to drink again. a little adjunct and metallic on the finish, but its minor and doesn't deteriorate much from the overall experience.

Poured on-tap in a shaker pint at a Margaritaville in Canada. The beer is a dark, ruby red coloring with no head, but a filmy ring on the surface. Nose of roasted character, caramel, and nut, but all very subtle. Flavors of sweet caramel forward, with a roasty backbone, and subtle, bitter hops at the end. Crisp and light in mouth. Clean, minimal toasted grain aftertaste. Crisp, clean finish. Typical macro-style red.
