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.

McGarnigle (600) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 28, 2011
Nice looking beer...fine head and lacing. Of course not a hoppy beer. Decent malt flavor with slight roastiness. Scotch/irish yeastiness to it, it’s not a clean beer. Pretty good.

daje (2819) - NORWAY - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle shared at Øl og matfestivalen. Dark clear red with thick beige head. Aroma is a bit roasty, with caramel and grain. Nutty taste with fruit, malt and a hint of chocolate. Ok bitterness, but doesn’t last

Cheosky (33) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2012
Maybe it was not the best time to try this one after so many excellent belgian beers. It is really light besides its darrk cloudy color, actually not red, more like yellow brown. Bread and licorice aroma. Kind of sweet malt taste low carbonation. The finish is a sort of Roasty smoky flavor

Rune (9998) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2012
500ml bottle at Blå Rock Café where it chilled down a bit too far. Solid rings of lacing from a lasting, beige head. Deep mahogany, red-tinged body. Faint smell of caramel malts with herbal hops. The flavour is dominated by red oranges mixed with mid-sweet malts. Notes of roasted malt bitterness to the ending. Soft and easy to drink. OK (Tromsø, 19.10.2012).

redpooba (402) - Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2013
A murky dark red with a poppy-white head. Spices and untamed body like one expects from an Irish ale, but a bit of lingering barely and hops. A decent beer.
