3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a clear dark deep mahogany with a small (less than 1 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and did not have much lacing at all.
The aroma was heavy of a biscuit malt, a light floral hop, and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and some toffee.
It tasted malty sweet with a hint of toffee from the start and then had a slightly bitter hoppiness to it with a light sweet caramel finish. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow allowing for the malty bitter sweetness to settle nicely on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was creamy in texture and just a shade under medium in body with a lively carbonation.
Overall this beer has a nice sweet maltiness with a touch of hops to it. Although it is a tasty and average brew, I have to say I did it enjoy it and would drink another.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old rating. Big caramel and maltiness in an Amberish. Better than macros, but sort of same generic taste.

Kinda meh beer. Good when you are just looking for a better grade of a macro bud type of a beer. Not really anything to get excited about.

Just not digging the caramel in this Irish red ale. Just tastes like brown sugar and excessive carbonation.

really indistinctive malt Amber brew that is hardly a step from mass produced beer.
