Orange-maroon color with light head. Little detectable aroma or flavor, though no detracting characteristics ale--in other words, a fairly standard red ale, that is easy-drinking, mild, and medium-bodied.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ll say it right off the bat, I’m a sucker for a well made irish red. Malty aroma. It almost smells red! Complex flavors of carmel, nuts, and earthy tones. Herbal hoppy finish. Only Conway’s Irish Ale beats this in my opinion.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
DRAFT: Light copper and mostly clear with a thinnish head; some lace. Nicely carbonated. Healthy malt base. Notes of grain, caramel and wood. Slightly bitter hops were flavorful. CASK: Frothy, lasting head. Smooth and very earthy. A little musty. Candy corn sweetness exudes. Hops dry out the mouth a little in the finish. Pretty good.
