Adnams Brewer Fergus Fitzgerald teamed up with fellow Head Brewer Cormac O’Dwyer from Dungarvan Brewing Company in Ireland to make a beer especially for St Patrick’s Day.

cask Lloyds Carlisle. Semi sweet fruit and malt aroma. Chalky and dry on the tongue with a lingering bitter finish. Some peat in the swallow and aftertaste

On cask at Old Swan (JDW), Uttoxeter. Pours red brown with a stiff white head. Looks the part, not much going on for a red. Not unpleasant but not interesting either. Disappointing as I like red Irish ales usually.

Pours like a slightly lighter Guinness but left for a minute or so clears to a gorgeous chestnut red colour with a fine off white head. First taste that hits yiu is dark cherry. Lovely. It gets a bit more bitter after that with some berries and a bit of chalk. Slightly astringent in the finish, like sucking on a salty plum or cherry stone. Very nice and has awakened my tastebuds after the blandness of my last beer.
