hayduke (3697) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 1, 2014
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.

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft pint at the brewpub. Very active with a tight head of foam. Caramel nose but a very nice well balanced beer, fitting into what I’d consider the altbier tradition. (#3663, 9/13/2009)

A really good Irish red, caramel, hint of vine fruits, pleasant aftertaste. A good session beer and much better than mainstream beers in Ireland. Had at the brewery in Cork.

Draught at Bull & Castle, Dublin (as Castle Red). Clear brownish amber, creamy head. Mildly roasty and fruity. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Mid hoppy with growing bitterness. Edgeless, nice and well drinkable.

Beersiveknown (3843) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 10, 2012
Cask@The Black Sheep, Dublin Hazy deep red-amber with orange and mango notes on the nose. Sticky malt reminiscent of 5AM saint, but with a much lower bitterness and little of the hop resins. Nevertheless a better Irish Red than most I’ve tried.

Martin243 (881) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Two 330 ml bottles, poured first into an English pint, which I topped up with the second. Dark amber with a persisting off white head. Fruity blackcurrant and sultana aroma. Flavour of fruit and nut toffee, and 70’s sweetshop penny chew. All fairly familiar, but lifted by creamy mouthfeel and a nice, if somewhat short-lived, bitter finish. I came to this hoping to be disparaging about a mega-corp version of craft beer, and ended up enjoying it as an accompaniment to cooking. Teach me to be mealy-mouthed.

massingasetta (399) - München, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2014
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.

Tayeth (486) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Geruch nach Äpfeln, Karamell, und ein bisschen nach Keksen. Geschmack einerseits geprägt durch Malz andererseits durch sehr angenehm harmonisierte Hopfennoten.

Gangstergafje (218) - 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.
