16 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki headh with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, raisin, plum, apple, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, raisin, plum, apple, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, an y east earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Irish red/ESB style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 On tap at the brewpub where it is listed as a "Red Ale ... like an ESB".
Pours dark amber with good clarity, a very fine looking head and plenty of lacing
Aroma: mild aroma lacks hop presence, as expected
The flavor is a bit more hoppy, but still more malty, as expected for style. Good bitter-sweet balance.
