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.

elbernays (843) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 23, 2013
Pours cloudy orangy red. Sweet nose, overly sweet, it’s tangy - strawberry in there. Very sweet beer - very ripe fruits, banana and strawberry. Big grainy bitterness. The finish is watery and somewhat leaving a metallic aftertaste. This isn’t the normal earthy woody red. Amber Ella is a better incarnation of an Irish red. Not great.

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.
