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.

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.

Kita (860) - 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...

garthicus (2591) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 15, 2011
Finally (and probably temporarily) this beer brings me to the number one spot for raters of Irish beers. Bottle. Appearance: Copper, almost hazy. Medium off white head. Aroma: Mildly fruity, good amount of malt, nice yeast nose too with a pleasant apple quality. Flavour: Malt, nice caramel quality, bitter, lightly hopped with a good yeastiness too, long bitter finish, quite a nice brew I found it quite pleasant and would happily drink again.

Beershine (5195) - 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.

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.

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.
