Aroma has hints of caramel. Copper/red color. Excellent clarity. True to the Irish Red style. Medium body and nice carbonation. Nice caramel and toast flavors. Easy drinking. New brewmaster and location have really paid off!

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from local Smithís. What others have said. Tastes like a very flat, very boring Oktoberfest. Not exactly terrible - this wins hands down over any typical American macro lager - but in a world of so much good beer, why waste the time? Oh well, Iíll save the rest for driving off evil spirits when the relatives visit.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
This beer is a disappointment, very pretty color, good head from sloppy pour. Tastes like water that had turned stagnant.
