Stubby bottle (dated MAR0111) poured into a Siciliano's mug. Most full bottle I've ever seen (probably close to touching the cap).
A- 1-finger, tan head drops to a light film a little too quickly (though none of my mugs ever favor head retention). Clean, copper body sports moderate carbonation. Decent stick left on the glass.
S- In a word, "robust" for the style. Pleasantly sweet malts create a solid caramel aroma. A hint of Ritz crackers. A little roasty tone. Some cereal notes with warmth. I like it.
T- Good stuff. Lots of caramel and roasted tones right off the bat. More of the buttery crackers. Good dose of flavor without becoming overwhelming. While malt-centric, it's no malt bomb.
M- Light carbonation. Clean, but solid feel.
O- It's an easy drinker and solid interpretation of the style in a category where it's tough to stand out. It doesn't try to fool around with anything funny. I'd put it toward the top and buy it again when I really want an Irish Red Ale.
