3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA. Reddish amber with a tight white head; the aroma is hidden by the incredibly low temperature at which this is served; in the mouth there are lots of fruity berries and some dry grains, before a dry finish. I was expecting an Irish style Red Ale - which this definitely isn’t - but it was a pleasant surprise.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
clear amber with a receding white head. Aroma was a little soft but included some light caramel, light biscuity toffee, and just a faint whiff of grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied and very average. I get some grainy toffee, a little bit of caramel, and a balancing bitterness which I am unable to describe further. Just tastes like a too-balanced average amber ale on a medium body.
