Pretty good for what it is-- not my favorite style of beer, but nor is this a real traditional Irish red. It’s lighter, with a strawy, wheatey, sharp yeastiness. How bout that. It’s the balance the retains a pretty good rating-- you can tell this beer was made with some love and skill when flavors don’t work for you, but something still makes it work. Here, it’s the strange lack of carmel or roasty / toasty maltyness. It’s there in balance, but there are no major flavor notes in these areas. It’s all much lighter and brighter than that-- very mellow, but not rich. So, good, fairly drinkable, a good beer to give my dad. He’s great, but he won’t sprain a taste bud on a strong hop flavor.

12 oz bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours a light red/orange with a 1/2" white head. A bit of lace. Aroma is bread and fruit, think toast with butter and jam. Sweet flavor, all caramel malt. Small hint of fruity hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Mildly bitter aftertaste.

deyholla (5975) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 13, 2013
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear reddish amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light grassy hop note with a bit biscuit and a good amount of sweet grains. Flavor is quite sweet with biscuit and sweet grains and not much of a hop profile.

Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark amber color with a small, off-white head. Aroma was some grain notes, slight roasted notes, with some caramel notes. Flavor was pretty malty, with some caramel, and some roast notes. Okay.

574deadzone (890) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2013
On tap. Pours a clear amber-brown with a thin eggshell ring of head. Nose is "Irish," lots of toffee, pear notes, some dust, caramel apple. Mostly sweet flavor with some bitterness on the end. Heavier side of medium bodied, very malty, with abrupt twangy finish. Not a bad brew, good to pair with some pub grub, but nothing inspiring.
