Pre-pour thoughts....Again, after my previous attempt vanished into the black web.....My previous experiences with Ghost River has been below average at best. I’m going into this with an open mind. I noted this was first brewed for what I’m guessing is a minor league baseball team. I’m hoping that this attempt in turn was given more effort.

Pours a very clear auburn, amber, copper, bronze color. Any of those colors would describe it. About one finger tan head. Okay retention, light lacing. Did I mention how clear it is? Very pretty.

Aroma is toasted malts. Caramel sweet. Touch of smoke. Touch of burning leaves. Touch of nut shells. Very light, but smells great.

Taste is sweet, malty. Caramel. Smoke, light earthy and floral hops.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Lightly carbonated. Soft, smooth. A touch bitter, but I can’t tell if it’s from hops or alcohol.

Overall, they nailed it. One of the best Irish Reds I’ve had. Yes, In would recommend this and yes, I would buy it again.

Leighton (22551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle at the hotel in Natchez, MS - picked up at the Walgreens in West Memphis. Pours clear reddish gold with a fizzy, off-white head. Earthy and leafy hops in the nose, some toasted grains. Light sweet flavour with grainy malts, more earthy and leafy notes, some orange peel, leathery berries. Light to medium bodied with average, fizzy carbonation. OK balance in the finish, with further grains, lightly toasted bread, some toffee. Decent stuff overall.
