it has an adequate malt character with just a hint of butterscotch type rye and Earth. the malt is fresh with a touch of sweetness. the finish has a bit of bitter hops like an English ale. the color is a nice deep really brown with some red hue in it. the body is moderate with low carbonation.

if you like your irish red ales overtly hoppy, this is the beer for you. im not a traditionalist, but i dont get the hop overabundance in here. not my thing.

Pours and orange red with off white head. Aroma is sweet sticky malt. Caramel overtones. Taste is sweet with an astringency that ruis it. Has potential, but can’t give top ratings.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel, light roast and light citrus. Moderately sweet caramel flavor with bread and light roast notes mixed with grass and citrus hops. Medium bitter citrus finish. Pretty tasty but not a typical irish ale.

Bomber. On the dark side for an Irish Ale, rich, malty, but with plenty of hoppiness to back it up. Finishes spicy, with a lingering stickiness that makes me want more.
