Nitro pour at Urge. Pours brilliantly clear rubied brown with a large, creamy tan head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is toast malt, dates and soft cherry notes. Flavor is sweet malt, light citrus hops and bitterness, dates and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

[ Keg ][ 4oz ][ Legacy ][ $2 ][ Fluted Taster ][ 7.20.14 ]
>> Nitro pour, good nitro lace. Roasty nose with cherry and sweat. Taste is moderate chemical, dry, some roast, more drinkable, not as harsh as their other beers. Finish is dusty. Not good but not offensive.

Most decorated marine true? Loved this brew fairly dry, malts were apparent and supported the brew, it is hard to find good rish reds, usually they are food colored bud light. Will cruise back to have this again!

Had one with corn beef and cabbage at Murphy’s law in Oceanside. Nice bright british island flavor, with a nice subtle sweetness. No detectable diacetyl. Was enjoyably thin in the body. The rich corn beef paired nicely with thirst quenching character. I find it hard to enjoy hoppy IPA’s with food other than Pizza.

On tap @ Legacy Brewing. Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Intense grape and prune aromas. Very buttery and also acidic. Smells like garbage...literally. Flavors of popcorn, prune, and sugary grape juice. Lots of butter, some bitter cardboard, and a slight acidity to the finish. Really watery and slick on the tongue.

On draft at Legacy Brewing Co. This irish red ale lives up to its name sake, Chesty Puller -- both are bad ass! I’m absolutely loving this brew. A phenomenal nut finish unlike anything I’ve tasted.
