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.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a murky copper with an average size diminishing off-white head. Mild aroma of grain, fruit and a bit of sourness -- not great. Watery flavour of caramel malt and yeast along with some fruit and a short light bitter finish. Average bodied. Most Red Ales and Irish Ales are quite dull and this is no exception.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle @ Bierhaus, Cork. Murky, a bit muddled, coppery-red. Bright fruity aroma is apples, pears, red plums. Hop flowers in the background. Quite a thick, lightly syrupy character. Lots of malt sugars. Lively carbo. Juicy, fruity, and good balance.

garthicus (2779) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 15, 2011
Finally (and probably temporarily) this beer brings me to the number one spot for raters of Irish beers. Bottle. Appearance: Copper, almost hazy. Medium off white head. Aroma: Mildly fruity, good amount of malt, nice yeast nose too with a pleasant apple quality. Flavour: Malt, nice caramel quality, bitter, lightly hopped with a good yeastiness too, long bitter finish, quite a nice brew I found it quite pleasant and would happily drink again.

500 ml. bottle Pours a cloudy red/orange with minimal head. Sweet malty aroma. A light taste, hoppy with a sharp and lingering finish. Curiously reticent impression overall; might need to try again.

culchiem (2890) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2011

PaulsPissed (37) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 21, 2010
I agree with onlyrocknroll, pours hazy orange with a nice head and smells of caremel. The sweet fruit followed by a long dryness is also spot on which makes the beer taste like a cider. A nice beer that I hope will improve, I would certainly have it again even to only take me back to my cider days!

omhper (20712) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2010
Cask at Bull & Castle, Dublin. Hazy amber. Mustrd aroma. Sweet and fruity with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. A touch of peat, but dominated by the strange Dijon mustard flavour. Fairly low bitterness.
