This Irish red ale is medium in body and has a very smooth mouth feel. Pleasant caramel and toffee notes. mild hop bitterness and a slight uk golding/ fuggle hop aroma. Originally designed to be poured through a Guiness type sparkler, although only enduring four hours of a bar tenders patience on a busy St Patricks day. Those first four hours produced the best pints with a nice tight creamy head. Now being poured through a regular faucet but still very nice.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark copper pour, with a medium, beige head. The aroma is big cereal aromas, syrup, light resinous hops. Very sweet flavor, with light bitterness. Medium body, chalky, and syrupy. Overall, this is a pretty tasty irish red ale.

chinchill (4270) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Pint on tap at 5 Seasons Prado. Looks perfect: Essentially black in the glass with a large, creamy, dark tan head that leaves plenty of lacing and has good retention. Looks like a notro tap but is not. Aroma is rather faint for style, particularly the coffee. No burnt or off notes notes. Likewise for the flavor, although a solid coffee note comes through from the finish onwards. A bit sweet, but less so than average for milk stouts, probably due to the coffee. Outstanding mouthfeel: creamy smooth; medium-light body; perfect and very soft carbonation.

Fairly nutty. Hints of cocoa. There’s a slight grapey flavor that’s a little unexpected but not unpleasant.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Dark amber color. Aroma has rye, some citrus, and cherries. Flavor is rather sweet with some bready notes, cherries, and caramel. A slightlly bitter finish. Ok for the style and the style is rarely amazing.

Cybercat (5119) - Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Comes out of the tap a barely translucent mahogany with a fine-bubbled light tan head. Rich, malty aroma is slightly hoppy and has spicy hints. Flavor is malty and fairly hoppy, just a little bit bitter, with nutty and spicy tones. Fizzy, tingly texture is a bit rough and lively going down the hatch.
