Draft that pours semi cloudy red color with minimal white head. Aroma of malt and caramel malts and a minimal hop base. The flavor is mild to medium caramel mslt base. A little more pronounced hop flavor but still quite mild. Overall just a decent red ale.

ContemplateBeer (1744) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Aroma: Rich caramel, nougat malts; a little butter; hops are a little spicy. Appearance: Hazy copper red pour with a foamy tan head that settles into a solid skin. Flavor: Matches the nose with a rich malt presence touched by a bit of butter; finish is slightly spicy and bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: A solid Irish red. Worth a go if you have a few extra bucks.
