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.

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.

Deu (679) - Nantes, FRANCE - AUG 13, 2012
550Ml bottle in Kerry. Nice Irish red ale but with a classic taste. I recommend it.

ACD (617) - Dublin, IRELAND - 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.

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.

Sizzler80 (434) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 5, 2011
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

elbernays (392) - 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.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2010
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.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2013
500ml bottle after dinner in Market Lane. Pours a deep copper/red with a lasting off-white foam. Aroma of apples, citrus, redcurrant and caramel. Medium caramel sweetness with a nice citrus finish. Slightly dry, lingering hops and smooth carbonation. Worked very well as an after-dinner beer, very light and refreshing.

Lorenasa (154) - Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Pours a dark mahogany with no head. Aroma of strawberry and hops. Taste smooth with a little strawberry notes. Medium mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
