Bottle to mug, the appearance was a murky amber color with a fingers worth of white foamy head that slid off at a decent pace. Some light lace.
The aroma had some roasted malts, light nutty sweetness, some toast, light floral to herbal quality and then some dried leaves.
The flavor was moderately sweet through the prior mentioned aromas to carry over in the aftertaste and finish.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine and light. ABV felt right.
Overall, seemed like a decent Irish red ale worthy of more pours. Nisse666 (8153) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2016

Clear nutty color with a fine off white head. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. A bit oily texture. Bready, pine, fruity and hoppy flavor. A quite nice and tasty ale.Jow (4168) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2016
[Bottle from a trade with Meilby]
Another brew in the mediocre brew mass purchase made for guests who drank none. Reddish pour small head. Nose is herbal and brown sugar. Tastes of toasted malt, brown sugar, caramel, herbal, light red fruit, and that’s it. Semi sweet palate. katrinaez (2355) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Amber color and mild hoppy aroma. Standard red taste, a little watery. Decent red but nothing special. On tap at cask fest.

Bottle. Pours caramel brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, bread and mild nuts. Flavor of toasted malts, caramel, grains and had some nuttiness. John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle. Dark copper. Dominant caramel malts and some dark fruit. Interesting choice for a spring release but, very solid all around.

Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, nuts, caramel, malt dust and hint of chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, nutty and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. It’s more like a brown ale but still very nice.
On tap at the taproom. Almost clear in the glass, dark amber in color and with a small, dense, beige head. Nutty, earthy, roasted aroma with a nice fruityness and a piney touch. Coffee hints. The flavor has a nice bitterness, it’s dry and medium to full bodied and a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, bread, nuts and coffee hints. All lasting for a good while. Pretty wonderful this one, would go well with burger, cheese, pizza and lots of other good food. 150607
