Pint. Poured a lovely shade of reddish-orange with a nice beige head. The aroma picked up lightly-toasted caramel and nutty notes with light fruity accents.. very good for the style. The flavor found similar.. semi-sweet caramel and light medium-skinned fruits with prickly carbonation and more fruit around.. finished dry with tasty sugars. Lighter-bodied with a good feel on the palate.. drinkable and tasty.
Sampled on draught at the brewery taproom north of Eagle River, Wisconsin and from 16-oz can. Pours a dark red amber colored brew with a thick and rocky off-white head that really sticks around followed by some excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel and sweet Beer Nuts and a touch of floral and grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, quite smooth with flavors of sweet caramel malt a touch of dark pitted fruits and some floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet with a short caramel and fruity ester aftertaste that quickly disappears. A solid Irish red overall.
