Red copper, clear, thin off white head
Aroma - Caramel malt, some raisin fruits, sweet fruity malty
Taste - Caramel malts, soft raisin fruits, touch of sweet toffee, good flavour
Palate - Soft carb, light to medium body, quite smooth, fairly sweet palate. Finish as main flavour, soft toffee malt tail

CraftBeerNick (1268) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Tap at JJ Harlows, Roscommon, 26th July 15. Dark red brown, reasonable off white head that dissipates. Aroma slight iron, hops, sweetness. Taste is pretty smooth, not a bad Irish, amber ale

cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 13, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 @ Franciscan Well in Cork: Warm clear reddish amber, short lasting head, weak notes of hops, getting stronger in mouth where malt fruit, and yeast is adding up. Sweet flavour, and lack of finish.

beerfest5 (1206) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 3, 2010
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.

Pours an amber/red colour. Taste is malty with some nice dried fruits, a good example of the style

tomer (2231) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
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.

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.

A very attractive amber colour. Some caramel, a little more tart then most Irish ales. Quite nice, except for the fact that it finishes very abruptly.
