3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Fate. It pours with a clear copper body that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up some sweetness from apples and raisins and a sense of sort of earthy malts. The taste has some malt roastiness and malt earthiness as well as a little bit of spiced red apple and raisins. I’m not really feeling this one come together.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample. Poured reddish amber with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet bitters flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer would go well with spicy pizza.

Tap at the brewery. Rating #9. Nice amber/red color and a little dark with those colors with an off white head. Nice maltiness too it with a very light hop presence. Good stuff. (2773)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice red color, beyond that the accolades are hard to come by. The beer was underattenuated and had a sweet syrupy homebrew tinge to it. Was also overly hopped for the style. Would have been better classified as an American Amber instead of an Irish Red.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from Fate! Deep ruby pour with hints of scarlet, crimson, and garnet at its core. Milky eggshell head. Loads of grapefruit, freshly baked biscuit, honey, toasted oats, and caramel. Really complex for a style that rarely is. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Delicious!

Reddish pour, mostly a white colored head. The beer has a really good hint of hops up front, a bit of citrus, some bready malt notes. Pretty nice for a style that falls flat quite often.
