flying_pig (1102) - SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
330ml Bottle from Reilly’s (Lisnaskea): This one was a pretty average beer in truth and not really doing anything to dispel my initial belief that this one doesn’t really count as a craft beer. Whilst the beer definitely wasn’t a bad one, it didn’t do much to impress either and seemed to be missing that spark to get me excited about it. Not all that complex a beer, the beer seemed a little sweet but it remained drinkable throughout at least

teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2015
Keg at Norseman Temple Bar, Dublin. It pours a clean amber color with a small pff-white head. Aroma is medium malty and lightly hoppy with notes of caramel and pine. Taste is medium sweet with notes of caramel, dried leaves, earth, resin. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent

Pint. Pours a deep burnt red with a thick foamy white head. Light and refreshing with no great strength. Pleasant and balanced with some mild sweetness.

Geruch nach biscuit malz und herbem Hopfen. Geschmack leicht wässrig, aber ausgewogen. Sehr Lecker, leicht buttrig im Nachgeschmack.

triskaideka (210) - Killarney, IRELAND - OCT 17, 2014
draught pint at Courtneys in Killarney. Pours reddish-brown with white head. Nothing much from the aroma - probably too cold from the tap. Taste - caramel, and malt. medium mouthfeel - not too carbonated. Good version of the irish red
