9/11/14 tall, skinny pint glass at Nicky Rotten's, Coronado Island, San Diego, CA. Barely an aroma. No head. Deep red color. A fine, drinkable, session beer but very boring an non-deScript. Barely roasted malt flavor. Next time pass and try something new.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clean copper body, small off-white head persists.
Mild aroma; toasted nuts, dark toffee, bit of bread and dried fruit.
Medium body, light carbonation, has a slight chewy texture to it.
Palate delivers plenty of nutty, caramels, sweet upfront, drying towards a finish with a bit of spice, raisin & moderate bitterness.
Pretty tasty, rather drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 Pours a nice clear amber color with a white head. Aroma of toasted nuts, sweet malt, and caramel. Flavor matches aroma, very low bitterness, sweet caramel malt with toasted nuts.

Red, malty, dark caramel flavor without being obnoxious. Sweetness under control. I thought the aroma was similar. Slightly nutty, mild bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pour was fine red-brown color with excellent clarity and a semi-durable beige head that leaves plenty of lacing.
Aroma: appealing mix of caramel and baked brown bread.
Flavor: good but simple flavor. Excellent bitter/sweet balance.
Feel: medium-light body wih crisp, near medium carbonation.
O: well-crafted if not particularly exceptional Irish Red.
