Not an Irish Red! Thos beer is closer to an American AMber but not an Irish Red. Too hoppy for an Irish Red but still not hoppy enough to make it an Amber.

Tap @ High Desert. Pours a bit hazy, dark golden appearance with a khaki head. Sweet caramel/toffee, a bit earthy aroma. Slightly soapy, floral bitter hoppy, toasty caramel malty flavor. Ok.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Once again, another thanks to TannerTavernboys for introducing me to this brew. This beer pours something that is NOT at all red. It was the most goldeny yellow Irish red Ale i’ve ever seen. Perhaps it had a hint of amber, but really now, I don’t know what they were smoking when they brewed this. The aroma was very faint with slight hints of roasts and malts. The flavor is highly astringent with bittering hops and slight malty notes in the finish. This beer finishes dry but has a fairly weak mouthfeel. It’s hard to describe..but this tasted like a red but was lacking something.
