Good example of an irish red ale. Loads of cream I’m the texture and lots of biscuit and red fruit in the beginning and end.

Bottle from Tesco, consumed at home. Reddish-brown, not a lot of head or lacing. Smells of cheap cherry cola, chestnut, candy sugar. Taste is sweet like forest fruit and caramel. Short finish. Decent body and mouthfeel. Not particularly exciting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was an English pint at Oil Can Harry’s pub in central Dublin, Ireland. There is nothing quite like a draft beer for freshness. In the glass it was a reddish amber with a white head and very sticky lacing on the glass. Nose is floral hops with ripe fruit. Medium in body with a very smooth abd creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is rich and the hops and malts are in good balance. and the finish is lightly bitter. Very nice beer and is so smooth in the mouth it seems almost like it came from a cash, not a keg.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Redish brown colour, delightfully drinkable and best drank directly from tap at the Franciscan Well. If you are ever in Cork this is a great place to enjoy a whole wide range of interesting beers. Summary of Rebel Red Ale: A beer that while it has a craft beer nature seems refined enough as if it has a century of tradition.

At a tasting, small stable creamy head, quite clear dark red colour, malty caramel aroma with some barnyard notes, fruity caramel flavour, light to medium strong herbal bitterness. Nice and satisfying.

Geruch nach Äpfeln, Karamell, und ein bisschen nach Keksen. Geschmack einerseits geprägt durch Malz andererseits durch sehr angenehm harmonisierte Hopfennoten.

Poured pint in oneills pub on Pearce street Dublin. Decent red ale, nothing perceived in the nose. Taste hints at a lot of things without delivering much on any level. What we’re left with it is a perfectly serviceable Irish Red ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Franciscan Well Rebel Red has a thick, off-white head, a mostly clear, rust-red appearance, some visible white sediment roiling about, and thin lacing left behind. The aroma is of slightly sweet bread crust, some caramel, and a touch of citrus. Taste is of those elements, with tea qualities and a decent and noticeable, yet mild, bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Franciscan Well Rebel Red finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT
