4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel brûlé, agrumes, chocolat et une amertume progressive. La signature végétale est particulièrement alléchante et combiné à la maltitude, c’est un minerai de buvabilité.

On tap at Dexter’s Pub in Madison, on GTMW eve. Mostly clear dark red color. Good thin off-white / khaki head. Leaves good bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Some caramel malt. Dark fruit, earthy hoppy character. Light to moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Some nutty, chocolate notes in the finish. Pretty solid Irish red ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very malty. Actually more dark sweet malt than Irish red. Kinda reminded me more if Robert the Bruce. Pretty solid stuff

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber color with a small head that leaves some lacing on the glass.
Aroma has some toasted caramel & light chocolate maltiness, fairly clean, fairly faint, fine enough.
The flavor has a pretty rich and well rounded maltiness, most defiantly some chocolate & dark caramel malt are there. It’s got a light touch of leafy happiness... some earthy tones. The beer is a touch sweet, but not cloying at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At the source, in a sampler shared with the just-21 year old. Pours ruby colored with no head. Aroma has bread and nuts and light stone fruits. Tastes follows, more fruity than the aroma. Medium bodied but light in taste and presentation. Finishes sweetly. Inoffensive, but likely not in the top 10 of their 15 taps. Shrug?
