sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
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.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a reddish-amber color with a medium fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly to a film. Patchy lacing. The aroma is malty with some caramel and hop notes. Light body with flavors of sweet caramel malt and floral hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

dogbomb (922) - ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Deep rusty red ale with a thinnish light tan fading head. Nose is biscuits and caramels. Smooth toffee and biscuits in the mouth, with a strong caramel finish. Full taste, with lots of sweetness.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2005
Cask (gravity) at The Bell Inn Irish Beers Festival, Nottingham. Fairly unsubtle all round; sharp bite to it, rough hops, bit of a sour finish, not a fan of this one.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2011
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.

Philym (925) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Appearance: Clear ruby with thin ivory head which was quick to disappear. Aroma: Floral, note of dried fig but very subtle, fruity, biscuit, note of syrup. Taste: Low/medium sweetness and sourness with low bitterness. Palate: Thick coarse texture and light body, average carbonation, astringent lingering fruity floral raisin finish. Comments: Tasty.

330ml bottle from Tesco - Deep reddy brown body, quickly dissipating thin white head. Nose is a fruity malt and caramel, with a similar taste. Nothing exciting reall;y but okay.
