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.

Bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
Pours copper colored with small head. Smell has some fruity and grassy hops. Starts with flowery hops and some roasty caramelly malts. Middle part has fruity and flowery hops. Goes into a bitter hoppy and flowery finish with some bitter malt notes.

A decent Irish red with a light copper pour, light carbonation and a thin off white head. The aroma is mild and depsite a thin toasted malt, a bit of a spicy hop note theres not along going on. Easy going taste with a well balanced, lightly crisp finish. Not overly bitter.

A little too bitter and metallic in the end, but a great copper colour with a quite complex flavour.

Kita (1538) - 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...

jamaty (1436) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Bonito color miel oscuro, muy turbia y con mucho sedimento. Espuma escasa pero bastante duradera. Aroma poco definido, tirando a dulce y algo frutal Cuerpo y textura excelentes, y carbonatacion en su punto. Sabor malteado y acaramelado, manteniendo un toque frutal. Muy buen conjunto, que se disfruta cada trago.

beerfest5 (1206) - Cloneen, IRELAND - DEC 8, 2013
The very best example of an Irish Ale I’ve had to date. Not my favorite style to be sure, but this was very easy to enjoy. Bready malts highlighted by a smoothness rarely found in Irish Ale’s which tend to be over-carbonated. Beautiful finish on this one, another good one from this brewer.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 15, 2012
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.

elbernays (953) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 14, 2013
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.

Deu (908) - Nantes, FRANCE - AUG 13, 2012
550Ml bottle in Kerry. Nice Irish red ale but with a classic taste. I recommend it.
