3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the brewery. Pours a nice reddish brown color with a tan, thick head. Aroma of toasted malt, some cereal malt, and hops. The hops manifest themselves in a earthy and herbal manner, though there is some fruity and floral notes as well. Flavor is mildly bitter with a strong sweetness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, with a moderately bitter finish. This is well done, interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft offering at the tap room bar in the brewery. Dispensed to a logoed pint glass with a ruby highlighted, dark brown color, light tan, frothy head foam, and wavy ribbons of lacing. The aroma was toasty & malty, almost melanoidiny, with caramel & toffee hints. Medium bodied, and lively carbonated, the flavor presented a noticeable hop bitterness that had a slightly abrasive, earthy, lingering quality to it. On the hefty side in IBUs, and quite dark for an Irish Red, (more Dunkel appearance) but tasty nonetheless.
