Faint nose (dried fruit / apricot / parsley / barbecue?). Too fizzy though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Winemark, Enniskillen (Ł2.59):
This one was a solid, if slightly uninteresting, Irish red ale that was fairly traditional in style with little variation from the norm. There was a nice balance to proceedings but I felt it could have been a little more pronounced with the smell & a few flavours more difficult to detect than I’d have liked at times. It was an easy beer to drink but it’s not really one worth seeking out, it was all pretty average if I’m honest.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Clear amber body with a light, but lacing off-white head. Aroma is mild malt and hardly not much more. Flavor is sweetish rather dark malt with some kind of bitterness, not any fresh hops in the flavor. Medium body and moderate aftertaste. Drinkable but rather boring.

Copper liquid, minimal head. Caramely aroma with a little grassy hop note. Light body. Thin & watery. Sweetish taste of caramel. The palate fails definitely.
