From a fresh growler that was filled (counter pressure) 48 hours ago. The aroma on this is really nice with light hints of peat, an underlying sweetness, and a little nuttiness. Light berries are also present. Very nice aroma. An attractive transparent amber body is present on this with a smallish off-white head. Starts with a nice and sweet maltiness. This is a nice malt bomb with delicate peat flavors coming through the middle. Nice carbonation. Virtually no bitterness. Extremely easy-drinking and very sessionable. This is just a world-class example of the style.

Tap at West Coast Invitational 2015. Pours ruddy with a slight off-white head. Aroma is mildly malty. Flavor is malty. Barest hints of hop. Irish reds are not my thing.

Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber with a medium creamy beige head with good staying power and nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, nutty, some grass. Flavor is medium sweet and quite light bitter, malty, nutty, with just a touch of grassy hop. Medium body, Very solid for style.

Draft at the brewery. Reddish pour, with off-white head. Sweet caramel malt, a bit musty, light hops, and more caramel malt. A more authentic Irish ale

Draft at the brewery. Reddish pour, with off-white head. Sweet caramel malt, a bit musty, light hops, and more caramel malt. As with most irish ales, I don’t like it much.
