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.

northropfrye (2150) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
Not a bad Irish red ale, though it’s not a very exciting style. Red orange body. Malty flavour with a touch of hops. Orange lemon notes.

mzaar (1549) - 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 (2886) - 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.

Dorqui (2095) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Bottled 0,33L. Reddish fraught color, good bubbly aspect, discreet foamy head of good resistance. Resin and woody nose with flavour of malt, cask and ashed cortex. Pleasant mouth, good balanced alcohol and malty final. Equilibrated bitter content.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2013
Free draught thanks to Scott from 8 degrees at the Franciscan Well Easter Festival. Pours a clear ruby with a thin white head. Woody, fruity, caramel nose. Medium sweetness followed bt a light tart bitterness. Sweet toffee finish with a smooth carbonation. Nice and light and refreshing beer.

Narnad (1454) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy red-orange color with a good 1-inch, creamy, ivory head. Aroma has a mild citrus nose, light noble hops kick and a solid dose of caramel and lightly toasted malt. Flavor starts off with a touch of orange citrus which transitions to a light caramel and light bready flavor and finishes with some soft bitterness. Body is modest with low carbonation and a good deal of lacing left on the glass. Overall an enjoyable brew with much softer malt, more hoppy approach to the Irish ale style.

omhper (19237) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2013
Bottled, from The Drink Store, Dublin. Hazy orange colour, small head. Sourish nose. Tart with some lemon and mild toasty malt. Light-medium bodied with clan mouthfeel and slightl ymetallic finish. Retains traces of drinkability, but like all other bottles I boug from this brewer it is clearly infected.
