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.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at the Long Dock, Carrigahalt, 05/12/14. Reddish amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is biscuit, toffee, malt tones, toasted brown sugar. Taste comprises caramel, red berry fruit, biscuit malt, sweet tones, light hop presence. Medium body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough for style, good balance, some hops evident, not one that runs the blandometer into amber!
