COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like an Irishman on holiday in the Canaries, this beer has a red tint but with a chilled out mellow feel. A traditional Irish style with a twist. It has subtle caramel notes balanced with a pleasant fragrant aroma from New Zealand and Australian hops. Goes really well with roast beef, lamb or a traditional Irish stew, but beware: keep out of direct sunlight.

A nice twist on the usual Irish red. Pale red appearance, subtle citrus on the nose, more citrus in the taste and a pleasant clean after taste.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a pale, hazy amber with a rough, white head. Slightly sweet, malty nose. Medium body, sweet malts and then an odd chemical tang which must be some fermentation error. Hardly any bitterness. A little late ashtray. 260713

mzaar (1387) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2013
Flaska. Bärnstensfärgad mot rött, smutsvitt skum. Förhållandevis svaga dofter, av karamell och oklar fruktighet. Smaken är bättre: kiwi, lime, smultron och karamell. Trevligt matöl.

goozen (2727) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2013
Tap at Farringtons, Dublin: Clear amber coloured brew with an great caramel taste to become addicted, also some New Zealandic hoppy aftertaste. Fun fact the day i ordered this beer was very sunny in Dublin and i was sunburned. Staff behind the bar noticed the sunburned fact, its was quite hilarious reaction of both sides.
