2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
2009 Bottle. I was generally underwhelmed by this beer. The aroma is interesting with hints of malt and caramels, though the flavor tends to be somewhat muted and watery. I’m sad to say that the American equivalent, Killian’s Irish Red, is preferable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head: medium, beige, frothy. Color: dark red-brown, clear.
The aroma is pretty faint with notes of caramel, malt and grains, roasty and a bit smoky.
Thin bodied, easy drinking with a taste of caramel, chocolate maybe, some vanilla, a bit roasty, with moderate hops bitterness and a certain spiciness. Finishes with a hop spiciness all over palate.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Deep red makes it looking fantastic but taste and aroma appear to be quite dull. Bit of berries in the background maybe but that´s it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle-I gotta agree with McTapps as I was expecting more from the brew. Pours with a large head, and decent amount of malty, caramel aroma and deep ruby color. Roasted malt taste mix with caramel, but not sweet caramel, almost a burnt caramel. A little thick on the finish that made for a slow drink. Total Wine.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep ruby colour with low head and medium to thin body. Nose of malt. Taste of rich malt, copper, metall, roast, dark grains and sour milk. Little bit too smoky for me, not easy to drink and also not really quaffable. Was a little bit dissappointed by this one, expected way more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown colour with a thin brownish head. A little bitter at start that quickly vanishes and leaves a pleasing taste.
