3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Black Sheep, Dublin. Deep red with small white frothy head, plenty of lacing. Aroma full of rich almost nutty malt and earthy English hops. Taste full of depth, very full mouthfeel with a lovely degree of earthy hop bitterness, thick caramel malt, nutty notes too. A solid Irish red.

Good caramel and malt aroma. Thick creamy head and very clear. Very nice roast and caramel flavors. A bit thin and leaves mouth dry at the finish, but I could drink this all night.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Bull and Castle, Dublin. (under Castle Red)
Cuivre, col ocre.
Malté et caramel avec des notes fruitées avec ce qui me parait être du bubble-gum. Le houblon ajoute de l’amertume ainsi que une touche citronnée venant de Challenger houblon, parfait pour ce type de ale irlandais et donne une bière légère en amertume.

Amber. Caramel nose. Tastes caramelly, earthy and not particularly interesting. Pretty indistinctive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ O’Neill’s. Lovely red hue, strawberry color. Nicely sparkled head on this one. Odd tomato soup aroma is somehow inoffensive...The palate is soft. Flavors are bready but like store-bought sliced brown bread. Not totally healthy.

Draught. Bull & Castle, Dublin.
Copper amber body, white foam.

on tap @ the Bodega, Cork. nice red, and after having the typical euro trash beers for a week it was so nice to have a micro. good flavor and body typical of a red, true, its probably not braking the mold, but a very good beer just the same.
