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.

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.

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

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2013
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.

Bamsen78 (3078) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2013
Can. Pours slightly hazy reddish amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, roast, chocolate and caramel with subtle hoppy notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt and fruit and a hint of dark chocolate. Nice.

22oz Bottle. The pour was a lightly cloudy medium copper with an average (1-2 finger) light beige rocky head that receded very slowly, down to a moderate film with a medium collar and had excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a toasted bread malt, light grassy hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a mild spiciness. The taste was lightly sweet and extremely malty with a hint of caramel which was present throughout, with the finish having a decent hoppy bitterness, a touch of spice and a chewy bready ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with the hoppy malty taste fading slowly off the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just past light in body with a watery and slightly dry texture and a carbonation that was just below medium. Overall I found this brew to have a nice balance of flavors. It possessed a good malt backbone, a light caramel sweetness and a delicious hoppy bitterness, which worked so well together that you could not help but enjoy it... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Mahogany appearance with an average size, off white head and decent lacing. Muted aroma of caramel malts and a hint of floral hops. Mellow, earthy, sweetish flavors with the hop profile developing more in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish.

22 oz. from vacation to Atlantic Beach, NC 2013. Malty fruity scent of moderate strength, deep burgundy with a frothy light tan head - gorgeous, medium dry feel. Grainy fronted taste, toasty malt flavor with a fruity hop on the end. Not too shabby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
