Tastes malty, Irishy. A very delectable beer. Thought I also tasted peat, but maybe Iím confusing my countries here. I could definitely drink this as a good session.

Why is it that the irish red is such a damn boring style. Surely it canít take too much to add a little bit of flavour. This is sweet, with some influence from the crystal malt. Itís distinctly bitter yet displays little hop flavour. Itís pretty boring really.

Very dark read. Very large head. Some hop aroma. Flavor is sweet carmel as the description says. Think Newcastle with more body.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2005 Found this beer in the bargain bin, some months ago and thought Iíd give it a try. Glad I did, because now it is a regular favourite. Pours a deep reddish-brown, with a thin lasting, off-white head. Aroma is of sweet malt and roasted grain, low fruity esters and a hint of nuttiness. Palate is light, but with well-rounded flavours. The taste was sweet in the mouth, nutty and yeasty, balanced with a mild roasted bitterness in the back and finished with a dry grainy medium length swallow. A true to form Irish Red Ale. Lovely!!!

Very nice brown/red colour. Sweet and lightly bitter finish. I had this beer in a 3 pack sampler brought back from Dublin by my sister.

Medium brown color with a reddish tinge. Sweet, moderate flavor with a hint of hops & bitterness at the finish. Not a bad session beer.

50 cl bottle. Bright clear with nice head, quite carbonated for an english ale. Nice smell og fruit and roasted malts. Very thin mouthfeel and a bitternes that is a little bit sour. Pleasant roasted taste, but too onedimensional.

Ruby colour under a nice, lasting beige head. Malty fruit aroma. Flavour begins sweet because it is so thin and watery, if that makes any sense. Moderate roasted bitterness at the end. Pretty ordinary, not bad just nothing to really distinguish it.
