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.

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.

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.

Bottle, thx sis. It pours more or less clear, light amber in color and topped by a dense, light beige head of moderate size. Some lacings. Sort of metallic nose with a light caramel touch, as well as malts and fruityness. Quite boring. The same goes for the flavor, it’s not bad, just boring. A pleasant bitterness makes up for some of the boredom, but it’s still a beer I certainly won’t do anything to find again. 120330

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2012
50cl bottle. Bright copper colour, off white head. Caramel, toffee, and slight red fruit on the nose. Taste is full of caramel malt and a thirst quenching fruitiness. A dry finish with a touch of hop bitterness. A decent Irish red.

at home ... copper ... soft toffee malt ... light fruit nose... juicy toffee malts ... light floral hop ... light bitterness...very subdued and simple ... easy drinking...probably a little to cool i should have let it warm up a bit.

In bottle, thanks Gregor. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite fruity with yeast, biscuity malt and alcohol. A nice barnyard mustiness with honey, caramel and a yeasty linger. Moderate carbon ation and a dry finish. Light CO2 prickle and a lovely woody character. I really enjoyed this.
