2015 BJCP Category: 15A Irish Red Ale
AROMA: Mild/neutral nose. Slight amber/red maltiness. Light red fruit notes too. 6/12
APPEARANCE: Fairly dark magenta/burgundy hue. Tan foam almost completely dissipates. 1/3
FLAVOR: Subtle caramel malt flavor and sweetness; slight red fruit flavor (cherry, plum). Mild earthy hop character, but low perceived bitterness. No roasty or chocolate flavors. Nothing off-putting but nothing to really enjoy here. 10/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; low carbonation. Smooth and quaffable, with a dry aftertaste. Not refreshing. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Not a bad beer, just a boring one. Not sure why they would include this style in their lineup. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: /50

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Translucent ruby with a lasting beige head. Silky medium-full body with moderately high carbonation.
Aroma: rich caramel and roast, sweet bready malt.
Taste: caramel, bready malt, chocolate, tobacco hops, and a touch of roast in the finish.
Great food beer. A bit too rich to be true to style, but a very good beer. Great layered complexity, and each element is deptly balanced.
