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.

goozen (3001) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2013
Tap at Farringtons, Dublin: Clear amber coloured brew with an great caramel taste to become addicted, also some New Zealandic hoppy aftertaste. Fun fact the day i ordered this beer was very sunny in Dublin and i was sunburned. Staff behind the bar noticed the sunburned fact, its was quite hilarious reaction of both sides.

visionthing (2813) - 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)

Not a bad Irish red ale, though it’s not a very exciting style. Red orange body. Malty flavour with a touch of hops. Orange lemon notes.

TheJestersBeer (2116) - 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)
