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.

it’s just a great red beer. This is authentic irish beer not an american brew posing as real.

A pretty average Irish beer. Nice mix of ingrediants, with nothing in particular standing out.

They replaced Caffrey’s on draft with this at my favorite beer bar. Pretty good but I WANT MY Caffrey’s BACK!

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2002
Pretty deep red with a moderate creamy head. Strong hints of caramel in the nose. Nice flavor, with loads of caramel, toffee, and peat in the malts. Texture’s less than ideal, needs to be creamier, but still quite tasty.

aracauna (2997) - Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2002
My first impression was the color. The color was an impressive dark brownish ruby. The smell was sweet malt and fruit. The taste had definite apple/apple peel flavors going on.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2002
Nutty, somewhat fruity, and maybe even a little figgy. Rich, sugary sweetness. Some smoke in the finish, melded with some hop bitterness. Has some ’Red’ and ’Brown’ ale qualities. Not too bad, but tasted too sweet to have more than one or two.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2002
Run of the mill. Its red, its Irish and its an ale. Aroma is malt toffe and caramel, flavour is chewy malt, bread and fruit. Aftertaste is spicy but slightly syrupy.

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2002
Very nice, nutty, smoky malty taste. Clean sweetish aroma and good palate. Very balanced.

bonvivant (168) - Smithfield, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2002
Nice copper color with great hop malt balance. Not the best red ale I’ve had but not bad.
