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.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. A creamy, off-white head forms over a amber colored body filled with micro floaties. Some lacings. Lighlty spiced aroma with caramel maltyness and some licorice hints. It’s smooth on the palate, with some licorice and spices, caramel maltyness and a touch of dried fruits. A bit sweet maybe, but it suits the beer. A nice one indeed, unusual, but very tasteful. 111105
