3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brilliant dark amber with a thin ivory head. Nice malty nose with a bit of amber malt and some irish moss. Flavor of the same, crisp and clean but also mossy and medium light with a semisweet malty amber-ness. Nothing out of the ordinary, save for the fact that Irish Reds are pretty boring and plain to begin with; so the fact that this has flavor and is generally pleasing is an accomplishment of sorts.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap at the brewpub, dark red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel and toffee, some sweet grainy notes with a slight grassy hop note. Taste is a mix of pretty bland caramel and toffee, slight yeasty bread, finishing fairly clean. Not bad, but a bit uninspired.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
pour is brown with a receding head of white. slight cherry nose to this strong malty aroma. a biting grainy/alcohol taste dominates this. pretty decent hop flavor that is more floral than anything else. the finish was not that pleasant . a bit chalky fruitiness that was too dry.
