2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass. The
appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange to red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some super light lacing all around.
The smell had a light toffee to chocolate to caramel nuttiness but all combined and pretty subdued.
The taste was mainly malty sweet with a decent sessionability about it.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent carbonation running about it.
Overall, Irish Red ale? Uhh...sure, not bad just not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber color with half a finger head. Smell is lightly malty with a tiny hop aroma. It has a very light mouthfeel and not a lot of taste jumps out. What taste there is is malty with just the faintest hint of hops. Decent enough beer for what it is. If I wanted a lightweight beer, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick this over an AAL.

This beer brought me back to when I lived in Germany in my early years, I hung out in Irish bars back then. I opened the beer and the smell made me think of fighting, and bushmills. We all have our demons and sometimes we are transformed back to them, this beer does that for me.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Carmel malt aroma from clear amber-colored pour with a pillowy white head. Taste mostly stale biscuit - bready. A bit of hop in there somewhere, but indistinct and not aromatic or tasty. Okay mouthfeel - easy on the palate but perhaps a bit thin. Not bad, but mediocre.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass: Pours deep brown with a hint of red and a nice looking tan head. Decent lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and sugar. Taste is a malty caramel, sweet residual sugar, a little nutty, with a surprising but small amount of hops on the back end. Light to medium body, high carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. This is a pretty solid beer.
