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.

visionthing (2402) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2012
Half a pint on tap at O’Neills in Dublin. Clear amber with a beige, slightly creamy head. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops with hints of fruits and some spicy and roasty notes. Medium body with light to medium carbonation. Lightly sweet and malty with a slightly bitter finish and aftertaste. Easy to drink and quite pleasant. Nice and refreshing Irish Red. (2011-06-11)

ACD (580) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 4, 2012
Keg pint. Dark ruby red colour with no real head to talk about - looks a bit watery. Aroma is of delicate floral hops, slightly sweet orange, sugary malt - very subtle and pleasant. Taste is of caramel malt, slight citrus (not imparting much bitterness though), fairly exotic floral notes too. Reasonably dry finish and very refreshing. One of the best true Irish reds out there.

imdownthepub (9672) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Chestnut with white head. Typical of an Irish red ale, this had a rich maltiness then a pronounced peaty, smoky note. Quite bitter and dry really. Rich on the palate and realy quite good.

TheJestersBeer (1937) - SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy, medium tawny, slightly dull, with an off-white head. Hoppy, roasted, sour aromas, caramel, nuts, light chocolate. Off-dry, medium bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2. The taste is quite robust and grainy, roasted malts, chocolate, hops, caramel, and a light sour note. Like a decent homebrew. (2012-03-01)
