2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 - Iím starting to detect a trend here. Fairly bland overall, with a hint of cardboard in the finish. Yet another uninspiring Irish Red. (11/20)

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.

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.
