Had this with a brewhouse burger at BJís. The first few sips were creamy caramel and smooth. The alcohol starting coming out about halfway down. Pleasant level of carbonation. I really enjoyed this with my meal after a week of hard work, but there was nothing extraordinary.

Draft at the Frederick, MD restaurant, clear deep reddish-copper color with off-white head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness and mixed fruitiness. Taste adds toffee, berries, dried fruits and faint spices. Medium body, moderate-low carbonation, soft with sweet fruity caramel finish. Itís malty and fruity, not sure about complex.

21st May 2015: BJís Laguna Hills outlet. Part of an eight glass flight. Copper body with a full white crown on top. Malty and semi-sweet with a fruity feel to the taste. Mild caramel notes mingle with the light hop content to hide the alcohol level nicely: decent.

On tap at BJís.
Aroma is malted fruit
Flavor is sweet caramelized hops. Quite better than anticipated.
Balance with the malts like a better than average Irish Red should be. Surprised by this brew. Pretty good.
