Outstanding example of what an Irish red ale should be. Bursting with malt and caramel . For a beer of such % the flavor is excellent. Even tho they brewed this for many years its the first time they bottled it. Got mine in Bradley’s north main street cork.

this is a well balanced ale.very clear with a hint of caramel in the after taste. I would say the best Irish red ale on the market. Had it in the bull and castle under the name of castle red. Barman said they only name it differently in this bar and is known as rebel red everywhere else. i did read however that they will be exporting it shortly to Amercia where it will be rebranded as franciscan red. something to do with another brewery having the rights to the name rebel.

Keg at The Ring, Southwark, London. Hazy amber with off white head. Heavily chilled beer, there is a sweet, malty, caramel flavour, some raisin fruitiness, thinnish. Pretty average.

Gangstergafje (308) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2015
The beer had a beautiful amber/ruby red color. The color is vey nice. The beer pours a minimal amount of foam. The beer looks appealing. The smell is very nice. There is the aroma of almonds, some roast and coffee, really nice. I can also smell some alcohol and a nice sweetness. The taste is slightly less good, compared to the smell. The taste has a roasty coffee like flavor, a nice bitterness. The sweet taste of the alcohol balances this out. The taste is nice. The beer has a nice feeling in the mouth.

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
