This pours a red amber with a moderate white head. It has a slightly sweet smell to it, which was a bit unexpected. The taste on it is a bit hoppy. with a hint of roasted flavors.

Can at the bar of soap. Pours red with an inch of white foam. Lots of sweet malt on the nose. Maybe a hint of hop floralness on the finish but it goes down smooth with more than a few hop notes. Solid for style.

Serving: Can at Ri Ra Charlotte. It pours a deep red color with a small head. Malt forward nose with some caramel, dried fruit, and malt sweetness. The nose has a bit of bread and caramel with a slightly bitter finish. Maybe a touch of resin in there as it warms. Fairly light in body. Nice session brew.

Has a definite grainy taste to it with a heavy malt flavor, slightly nutty and little hops, fine for a casual session beer

from growler, good aroma, bitter sweet, citrus, biscuit, wet card board. Brownish orange color, got a good head with a vigorous pour, bitter sweet aroma, more citrus, grapefruit, less biscuit. medium body, creamy mouth feel, bitter finish, Good beer, aroma had nice mix as it seemed to jump around from sniff to sniff as what I smelled. Hoppier than other Irish reds I’ve had, but that’s OK
