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.

Dogbrick (8149) - 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.

Pours clear deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, pine and grassy hops. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

HogTownHarry (6108) - 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.

blankboy (6081) - 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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2012
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.
