COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A somewhat classic Irish Red Ale. This ale is feisty and a bit hoppy. There is a malty sweetness and a somewhat dry finish. Traditional East Kent Goldings but with a nice touch of Cascade and dash of roasted barley give this ale a great taste.

@ Greens Discount Beverage / Columbia SC --- Taste is malt with a bit of dark fruit that adds light bitters deep in the palate before turning slightly sour in the finish. An unusual brew - not an Irish Ale exactly, not a sour ale, not a brown ale, but somewhere in-between.

PorterPounder (5600) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Tampa, Fl. - Total Wine & More - 12 oz can. Sparkling medium copper-amber pour, thick off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma has some bubble gum, a touch of toffee. Flavor has a roasty accent to it with some toffee candy notes, a touch of plum-like fruitiness. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it, Reminds me of Fat Tire, not bad.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a big off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel and chocolate, no hop bitterness on the nose. Taste is malty, caramel and chocolate, metallic notes and slight hop bitterness. This beer does not live up to its description. Not good

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - FEB 12, 2014
Canned at "GolosItalia 2014". Dark amber color, ashed aspect with creamy head of long duration. Intense smoked malt aroma, notes of wood, cortex, amber malty. Good and very typical taste, good bitter palate and pleasant equilibrate alcoholic final.

scotchzombie (347) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2014
From a can to a glass. Pours cloudy red-brown with a huge foamy off-white head. Very nice lacing on sip or swirl. Aroma is pale malts and grains. Smells quite like a lager. Taste is caramel and roast malt followed by some nice woody hop bitterness. Very earthy all-around and with moderate carbonation. Some malty sweetness with a bitter profile dominating the backend and aftertaste. The style is not often exciting - and this beer isn't either- but it is a well-crafted red ale. I could easily down a few of these and wouldn't mind doing so. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured an amber color from the can with aromas of malt, light roast, some caramel and a touch of toffee. Flavors were the same more caramel came out as the beer warmed still a better beer than a macro.

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Nicely balanced red. Nice red color minimal head. Good maltiness without being overly sweet. Hopping just enough to give it a kick but doesn't overstay it's welcome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, 6.1%. Caramelly crystal malt aroma with fruity notes. Almost clear red amber colour. Good off white head. The flavour is caramelly with a fruity, but clean hoppiness. A rather refreshing and clean beer even though I usually do not like the style.
