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.

guzgorog (721) - FRANCE - FEB 20, 2016
Brune pale avec des reflets rouge sang, fine mousse blanche. Nez très gateau : biscuit, caramel, pain grillé, réglisse. La bouche est sur des saveurs de malts grillés, de caramel et de biscuit, on sent la présence des houblons exotiques à l’amertume modérée qui apportent une très légère touche de fruité. La longueur est correcte, la carbo aussi, le corps est assez léger. Bière agréable.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Shared bottle at the 4th International Beer Swap in De Bierboom, Brugge on 5th Feb 2016. The only Irish beer I saw at the event. Haze to the red/brown body, fading beige head. Nose had grains, malty and chocolate like, as did the taste, leaning towards sweetness, yet there is a mild hop bitterness in the background. OK rather than Wow.

TheKernOwl (194) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Modern-hopped (bitter orange/Seville marmalade) with lovely rich toffee/caramel malts. Like an American Double IPA, but not as strong.
