3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Old Town Brewing, as "Old Town Paulie’s Not Irish Red." Clean, fruity nose, with light raisins and roast malt. Very pretty reddish brown color and a creamy tan head. Toasty maltiness, a stew of fermenting dark fruits. Thin-medium body and good smooth mouthfeel. Great balance from mid palate onwards. Tastes more like a heavy amber ale.

Draught. Red pour with white head. Light malt aroma, rather pleasing. Flavour is something like a good bitter, malt sweetness balanced with hop bitterness. Bitterish finish with some roast notes.
