3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear reddish amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is yeast, light metallic hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt, resin hop light citrus bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I don’t like red ales normally, but this one had some body and a little flavour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber with thin white head. Aromas mainly bread and cereal with trace of caramel malt. Taste mild bitter and sweetness. Finish slightly too sweet. One of Flying Dog’s better beers but it’s a triumph of presentation over content.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A beautiful ruby colour with a primary but not overpowering hop aroma. A mild taste with a hoppy aftertaste makes it very drinkable and one that would work as a session beer.

330ml bottle, pours clear amber with a small white head. Toasted bready malt with caramel malt, not much hop favour but bitterness coming through at the end. This pretty standard fare. Was hoping for a bit more character. It’s not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Your basic red irish ale, with a bit of a spice kick. Nothing too exciting or drinkable. Toasted malt.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured reddish amber with an generous off white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Roasted malts is the predominant aroma combined perhaps with some caramel. Taste is consistent similar of a English bitter. Decent beer but nothing truly special, solid easy to drink.
