Pleasant malty aroma of bread, toffee, light hop woodiness
Pours an amberish copper color with creamy lasting off white head
Malty flavor, bread toffee and a decent amount of roast, woody hop.
Medium bodied, medium high co2, lasting bittersweet finish.
Very nice amber ale. Well balanced and interesting enough to keep drinking more

Smells of red malt and bread, taste is both those (particularly big and bready) but with just enough hopping to provide a nice, crispy grapefruity dry finish. Not complex or mind-blowing, but a very nicely done Irish Red, for sure. Very drinkable.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Trade from a Sacramento friend, thanks Ed! Hazy dark amber with billowing 3-4 fingers of beige head. Aromas of dark fruit, malt, light biscuit/toast. Tastes of toast, biscuit, some dark fruit and malt. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Seems a bit off.

Labeled as an Irish red at their brewery, not as an amber ale as listed in places. I found this brewer to be completely underwhelming. This beer was true to the style, which was more than I can say for a few of the others, but utterly forgettable.

Tap: dark amber pour with a small tan head. Aroma is soft with malt, a light toast and a liytle grain. Flavor is lightly sweet with malt turning into a tart grass hoppiness, bread and a grainy, yeast bitter finish. I like it with my meal, nice flavors but kind of filling.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a finger of head on a clear, caramel colored body.
The aroma is nice, but interesting for a red ale: chocolate and milk.
The taste is balanced: mild sweet caramel and mild bitterness. Quite drinkable.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours tea color, nice malt sweetness/hop bitterness balance, finishes cleanly but without distinction. Just an okay expression of the amber ale style, not a great expression.
