A flavoursome, fruity Irish red ale, which uses crystal malt to give a caramel character that is balanced by a light dash of bittering hops. Perfect accompaniment to most meat and game dishes. Contains a yeast sediment - store upright and pour carefully. Best served at room temperature.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Cask, The Whiffler, Norwich, 01/09/15. Loose foamed and eponymous. Ripe eggy wafts, dark varnished wood. Stillness, booze, walnut, drain-like minerality. Vapid finish. Biscuit crumbs. Bland, even after a week on pissy lager and Hopleaf.

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Cask at the Water House (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint Pours dark amber verging on brown with a scummy white head. Nose is sharp and grassy, Taste is surprisingly sweet with caramel malts and some floral hop. Quite a pleasant bitter if a little thin. I could happily session this.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2015 An okay beer. Nice colour. Aroma not great though. Mild on palate. All in all okay but not sure if this is exciting enough.

patricks110 (2233) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2015
A decent Irish red with a light copper pour, light carbonation and a thin off white head. The aroma is mild and depsite a thin toasted malt, a bit of a spicy hop note theres not along going on. Easy going taste with a well balanced, lightly crisp finish. Not overly bitter.

reebtogi (5078) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
500ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger off-white head that leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and citrus with some other light fruits. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a nice brew that tastes good and has a nice balance to it.

jamaty (1547) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Bonito color miel oscuro, muy turbia y con mucho sedimento. Espuma escasa pero bastante duradera. Aroma poco definido, tirando a dulce y algo frutal Cuerpo y textura excelentes, y carbonatacion en su punto. Sabor malteado y acaramelado, manteniendo un toque frutal. Muy buen conjunto, que se disfruta cada trago.
