COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mike_77 (3115) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
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.

DanK720 (4) - IRELAND - MAY 30, 2014 does not count
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.

triskaideka (137) - Killarney, IRELAND - MAY 27, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 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. (rated this as Dooliner)
