COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most versatile beer. Good to drink as well as cook with. Light enough to quench a thirst and complex enough to accompany fine dining. Carmel malty sweet fades to a chocolate roasty finish and dry from a touch of rye. 1.057 OG 13 IBU 6%ABV

Sarlacc83 (1165) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2015
On tap at Apex, post CBC A: Mostly clear amber, creme head, lacing. N: Toffee, pine, some pineapple, biscuit, and toast. T: Sweet and bready. Light bitterness. Mostly clean. M: Medium, sticky body, prickly carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Solid Irish Red. Much better than Killian’s, which is admittedly damning with faint praise.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2015
Pour on tap at HopCat, slightly hazy red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of toast, marshmallow, some caramel into a bit of toffee, dark fruit, some slight grassy, herbal notes in there as well. Taste was a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, slight earthy notes into a bit of herbs, some grass, touch of yeast into a bit of fruit, finishing sweet, slightly smoky almost.

Bomber - Dark maple pour with off white head. Very malty nose. Taste is malty but with some astringent notes that really hurt the beer. I used to enjoy this 7 years ago but now it's just not that good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
