A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

Gehbe (265) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 9, 2016
Pours deep ruby and clear, big persistent tan head, decent lacing. Fairly dry aroma of toast, bread crust, toffee, coffee, herbs, spice, resin. Tastes fairly dry, light bitterness on top with a little bit of roasty acidity. Light body, medium carbonation, somewhat sticky aftertaste. Not bad, but the herbal/resiny flavor doesn’t go well with the dark malts.

tfontana (726) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Aroma is bread, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla. Appearance is clear dark orange/red with fast rising sparkle, 1/2 finger-width frothy off-white head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is roasted malt, caramel, earth, balance of sweet and bitter. Palate is medium bodied with airy texture, lively carbonation and dry throughout, including finish. Overall, more interesting aroma than flavor with nice appearance and decent palate.

toscanoigor (109) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - JUN 9, 2016
Do tap: uma apresentação linda, de um vermelho profundo, transparente, com creme persistente, na medida. Aroma forte de caramelo, notas de malte torrado, nozes. Sabor doce, com amargor moderado e balanceado. Retrogosto do malte torrado. Uma ótima Irish Red, mas para os aficionados por lúpulo e amargor, talvez não seja a melhor escolha.
