An Indian Pale Ale that is high on malt and uses a "crystal" malt which is carefully crushed, not ground, to deliver a rich flavour and deep copper colour. Now brewed in Ireland.

culchiem (3444) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2014
Draught at the Dice Bar. Not sure why this is classified as an IPA. Deep red with a medium head, good lacing. Aroma is light malt. Flavour is gentle red ale, a little treacle, soft malt finish. Easy drinking.

Keg@dice bar
Hazy dark amber red brown with beige lacing. Slightly cardboard nose, medium body and carbonation, fairly light and fruity, dry caramalt finish. Lacing any discernible hop character but competent enough.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Keg dispense at Dice Bar, Dublin. Pours a copper red colour with a decent enough head, lacing is light throughout. Holy Jesus this smells poor - granny’s over-boiled some veggies and left them out there on the stove to ripen...and a bit of caramel. Christ. Taste doesn’t get much better - stewed veggies, caramel malt, slight herb, cardboard. Aftertaste is swift (thankfully) with a slight herby hop flavour lingering alongside a touch of caramel and a load of weird off-flavours. Irish micro-brewing at its very worst (i’m not too fond of this style at its very best to be fair); there’s a reason this is only available in one location in the city, do yourself a favour and buy a bag of chips instead.

garthicus (2892) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 30, 2012
This brewery is alive again and calling itself Big Hand Brewery and only brews for Dice Bar. Appearance: Ruby red, small white head. Aroma: turnips, malt, plastic, quite a ’home brew’ aroma. Not great. A little sad that I have a whole pint. Flavour: Nutty, cabbage, lots of caramel, weird, almost cake like. I don’t know. Odd.
