This was a great beer for me. Malty, yet with a good balance of hops. Had it on a hot day, but found it refreshing, and not too heavy. Loved the beer, the appearance, and the taste from start to finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Lowes Grocery. Typical Irish red color. No head. Minimal lacing. Pungent aroma. Taste is very pungent to start. Full bodied and creamy. Just ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark amber with a nice head. Has a malty aroma that transcends into taste as well. Slightly sweet but not enough to overpower the hops! Nice beer to drink and will drink again!

Dark amber / reddish color. Nice hop profile, but a tad too sweet for me - not quite what I’d call a session beer. Toast, caramel, butterscotch.

Smelled great upon uncapping. Great taste, kind of flat though... Wished it had more bang. I’m a big heffe fan, but this could be one of my go-to’s for after yard work.
