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.

First try for this type of beer. The taste is smooth, nice flavor and reddish color. Not a bad one but I still prefer the stouts if I go for an Irish brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very bitter redish dark beer, yet the bitterness is appropriate and fulfilling. The Irish red is one sided in taste but that taste is great. A beer to definately try and savour.

Red drink. Nothing special, light bitterness. The finish is long enough. Not Bad.

Maltig söt doft. Litet huve. Lätt kropp. Kolsyrad smak & lätt karamell. Lätt maltig. Industriell? Kändes väldigt dålig i smak & kropp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från @thaalcoholic, tack! Mörkt bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust stort skum. Doftar lite karamell och metall. Smakar maltigt med tydlig beska.

Pours a clear dark amber/brown color, topped with a frothy beige colored head. Caramel aroma, some roasted notes and a bit fruity. Taste starts with some sweetness and caramel notes, roasted body and moderate bitterness in the finish. Nice.

Keg at Norseman Temple Bar, Dublin. It pours a clean amber color with a small tan head. Aroma is mildly sweet with caramel malt, toffee, grains and pine cones. Taste is lightly roasted and medium sweet, with notes of grains, toasted bread, toffee, nuts, pine needles and resinous hops. Finishes drier with bitter notes oh piny hops. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice red ale
