To start it has a very red like color but it doesn't seem forced. Serve chilly and it comes out more moderately clear with a light fog. The head disappears quickly.
The smell is very sweet and toasty and makes this very approachable.
The taste is dark and roasted with a sweet dessert like finish like eating a tart dark chocolate. The feel is a little to light for a good Irish red but I can forgive.
Overall I would say that it really is was a dark horse in terms of what I was expecting considering I paid a dollar and quarter a pint. I would say if you find a good deal on it go for it

Probably the worst craft beer I have ever had. It just feels empty and has a terrible finish. I have 3 left in the fridge that I am just dreading drinking.

Busted Knuckle pours a dark reddish color with a nice long lasting and lacing head. There is a roubust roasted aroma, with a nice sweetness. The taste has a mellow roasted flavor, a little too sweet, and some earthy tones. A little too carbonated, but still some nice flavors. Overall its a decent red ale, some nice flavors, but a little too sweet to be great
