4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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...

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle. Pours dark red white head. Roasted nuts, burned wood, toffee. Nose follows into flavours. Definite burnt notes which dries the mouth with a nice bitterness. Body is light and the flavour cannot carry this so is watery on the finish. Okay just.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 I had this on cask at Bull and Castle in Dublin. Lovely fruity, blood orange colour with a very small head. Copper coast is full of fruit both in taste and smell. Aromas also include caramel, wet grass. Quite dry and sweet from the caramel and fruit, redcurrant, on the palate as well as a citrus bitterness. A pleasant Irish red ale.

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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange, slightly hazy with a large a sustaining head. Sweat caramel aroma with a trace of bitterness. Rather fruity flavour, immediately sweet on the palate, but this quickly gives way to a lingering dryness. Otherwise very good, except for some medicinal phenol which slightly taints the aroma and finish, understandable for a new brewery I suppose. Were it not for that, this review would be a rave because this is an otherwise very characterful beer, which I’m sure will improve with subsequent batches.

Geruch nach Brause? Geschmack säuerlich. Anständig bitter zum Ende, aber insgesamt Strange.
