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 (3488) - 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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent reddish brown, medium to small off white head, very little lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel, tropical fruit, marmalade. Taste is the same. Extremely well balance, and for a style that is usually overwhelmingly sweet malt that becomes cloying after a very short time, this is a rarity due to being enjoyable bottle after bottle, good session ale.

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.

Beautiful dark red color. The beer pours a white foam. The beer is cloudy. The smell is very fruity. It is a very fresh smell, with a nice sour hint. There are some citrus fruits in there. The smell is good. It has a nice bitterness right from the start. Also the citrusy hops are present in the nice taste. The bitternes is quite strong, I wouldn’t recomend drinking this ale after a sweet beverage or snack. But in a neutral mouth it is delicious. Glad I brought this home from Ireland.
