3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a solid red color and gives the same color body. A nice half inch white foamy head appears and gently dies into the body within a minute. Lacing spider webs down the pint glass. The smell is malty with caramel notes up front and some corn and grains slightly in the back. The taste is the same as the smell and finishes with a dry caramel taste. The mouthfeel is light to medium with a dry aftertaste and nothing harsh on the tongue. I would say this is a mostly drinkable beer, low ABV helps. Overall, this is a semi-solid Irish Red that is satisfying.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of the 25th anniversary beers from Geary’s on tap at Flynn’s. Color is a very bright but ultimately watery red with a large white head. Aroma is of bready malts, with grearys subtle hops link their ipa. Not a dazzler at all, was very thin tasting, almost macro.
