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.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Shared bottle at the 4th International Beer Swap in De Bierboom, Brugge on 5th Feb 2016. The only Irish beer I saw at the event. Haze to the red/brown body, fading beige head. Nose had grains, malty and chocolate like, as did the taste, leaning towards sweetness, yet there is a mild hop bitterness in the background. OK rather than Wow.
