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.

Dogbrick (10043) - 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.

Assaggiata alla spina, niente di eclatante, meglio tornare alla stout...prevalenza di malto caramellato

Kita (1599) - 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...

Pours a cloudy reddish brown from a bottle with a thinnish head. Sour lager smell with a sweet non alcoholic flavor. Hope my wife likes it since its hers.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
February 15, 2011. Shared by garthicus with blankboy and me. 500ml bottle. Hazy copper with an average diminishing frothy off-white head. Lovely fruity aroma, yeasty and "Belgian" - smells a lot like a baked alaska, quite floral - almost 8/10! Taste is a tad harsh - apple and appleseed, young cheap chablis - green, bitter, some alcohol. Slick, astringent, weakly carbonated and light-bodied, finishes with some back-palate bitterness and dry acidity. Lovely aroma, a bit of a let-down afterward.
