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.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2013
500ml bottle after dinner in Market Lane. Pours a deep copper/red with a lasting off-white foam. Aroma of apples, citrus, redcurrant and caramel. Medium caramel sweetness with a nice citrus finish. Slightly dry, lingering hops and smooth carbonation. Worked very well as an after-dinner beer, very light and refreshing.

A little too bitter and metallic in the end, but a great copper colour with a quite complex flavour.

triskaideka (128) - Killarney, IRELAND - JAN 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Revisited 19-JUL-14 - pours dark amber with white head. Aroma is malty and caramel. Taste follows - malty/caramel - more flavour than similar ales of this profile. This isn’t my favourite style but good version

ciaranc (794) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 15, 2012
Hand pump @ L Mulligan Grocer. Brilliant copper poor, lovely foamy white head. Not much aroma, some dusty malt, orange peel. Nice fruit caramel notes in the flavour, not shy of hop bitterness in the finish. Smooth mouth feel, flat carbonation. Suits hand pump well, I like it.

Dogbrick (7627) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle at Courtney’s in Killarney. The beer is a slighly hazy reddish-copper color with a medium thin and foamy off-white head that burns away quickly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of grain and caramel. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, slight hops and a bit of cardboard. The finish is semi-sweet with a short earthy malt aftertaste. Barely average overall.

danielecamo (402) - ITALY - AUG 26, 2012
Assaggiata alla spina, niente di eclatante, meglio tornare alla stout...prevalenza di malto caramellato

Kita (986) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottled, 0.5l. Slightly hazy copper color with thin beige head, soft carbonation and some yeast residue. Aroma of spicy hops, barley malt, yeast and strong fruitiness. Taste of caramel malt and dried fruits, on the other hand aftertaste is long and pleasantly hoppy. Medium to full bodied, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. I liked this one very much...
