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.

omhper (21769) - 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.

This brew pours a hazy bronze-orange color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Light body with a sweet malt character and notes of grassy hops and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

visionthing (3778) - 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)

Beermack (725) - 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.
