One of my favourite reds, a gorgeous colour when poured and a good level of hoppyness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An overpriced 50 cl bottle from some generic Irish pub in Venice, Italy, in June 2014. Pours a beautiful mahogany red with a huge frothy head that just stays forever. Aroma is malty of caramel, rather sweet. Malty, roasty taste with a decent hoppy kick in the finish. Also slight hay and grapefruit. Flat carbonation; light body. Overall a really simple yet lovable brew. Too bad we don’t have this in Estonia.

500 ml bottle. Dark orange/light amber, perfectly clear, with a big, fluffy and persistent light beige head. On the nose caramel and toffee, roasted malts, light berries, freshly roasted coffee beans. Quite nutty taste wise, lots of almonds/nuts/peanuts and the likes, toasted malts, slightly fruity and bitter. Kinda watery as well. Easy to drink overall. Soft to average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Decent, but not too impressive.

Very dark red-brown colour. Somewhat muted aroma with just a trace of dark, fruity malts. The flavour is stronger though with toasty malt bitterness.

Pours dark red with white and foamy crown. Taste is bittersweet. Kind of boring for a red ale.

beautiful appearance of reddish-brown colour and moderate sized creamy beige-ish head; aroma of roasted malt, dried berries and some biscuit, similar taste; correct Irish ale

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, deep red with a white head. Very refreshing, lightly effervescent. Fruity and rich with slightly hoppy aftertaste. Sweetish in taste and overall a nice beer especially when served chilled on a warm day.

Draught from the bar itself. On nitro. Pours dark red with creamy off-white nitro head. Nutty, malty, caramel flavours. Quite easy drinking. Despite my location, I’m not a big fan of the general style - but this was good.
