This brew pours a hazy bronze-orange color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Light body with a sweet malt character and notes of grassy hops and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg pint. Dark ruby red colour with no real head to talk about - looks a bit watery. Aroma is of delicate floral hops, slightly sweet orange, sugary malt - very subtle and pleasant. Taste is of caramel malt, slight citrus (not imparting much bitterness though), fairly exotic floral notes too. Reasonably dry finish and very refreshing. One of the best true Irish reds out there.
