  • Brewer's Description:  A smooth, medium bodied Red Ale with a great toffee finish. 
  • Recommended Glassware: Tiku
  • Russ' rating: 8 of 10
  • With the brew: The Local Irish Flavor
  • Comments: Pouring a darker ruby red than I had hoped for the beer head has an average ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm ) bubble size in the one finger head. After the pour the head settles quickly but leaves a faint lacing in the glass. The nose is malty and sweet, but the body is a bit lighter than I would like. I think next time I will add a bit more DME (Dry Malt Extract) to the boil.
