COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

RobBestwick (805) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2016
500ml bottle. Sweet bread and caramel aroma. Pours dark red/orange with a large frothy head. Oak and woods notes and an overall sweet dark chocolate malt character. Creamy texture and a touch of bitterness in thr finish.

UXO (1397) - CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale amber with a massive fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: bready and grainy malt, earthy, grassy, light fruit and nut. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter finish. (3/5) Another Dungarvan brew with a completely ridiculous head, despite normal handling and a fairly careful pour - I’m starting to detect a trend here. Fairly bland overall, with a hint of cardboard in the finish. Yet another uninspiring Irish Red. (11/20)

pintbypint (3326) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2015
500ml brown bottle. Colour is orange, hazy. Lots of white head with lots of sticky lace. Aroma - caramel with citrus and floral hints. Taste - citrus, caramel, cardboard, minerals, quite dry. Light in body. Overall a decent looking brew, but falls short in flavour and finish. Disappointing. Would not drink again.

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.

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.
