Pours cloudy deep red with white head. Sweet biscuit nose with toast and hints of smoke. High concentratd carbonation that hits on initial sip. Earthy taste with toffee malts and nice bitter finish, some nuts and a smoky aftertaste. Looks the part and is a good beer.

Ruby red pour, medium dissipating head. Malt, caramel, bread, slight berry, leaves. Dry, hoppy and medium bodied. Medium soft carbonation. Overall not bad. Could be a lot better. 5am Saint is a great example of this style.

500ml bottle. Nice colour, deep copper ruby red, nice and dark. Not much of a head. Traditional Irish red, malt nose, hints of caramel. Flavour is nice and fresh, toasted dusty malt, quite dry with just a nod to caramel sweetness. A subtle dry hoppy bitterness underpins the whole thing. Soft carbonation, light enough body. Finish is toasted malt. Not my favourite style but a decent representation.

500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin head. Fruity aroma, lively carbonation, hoppy, hints of caramel, bit more body then I expected also has a good long finish. Good Irish red.

A very fine example of a good Irish red.
Crisp on the tongue, followed by a smooth malty finish. Nice

Galway Bay Bay Ale is the real name I think. The head is good, the body brown. It smells hoppy, malty, sweet, flowery, citrussy, nice. The taste is hoppy, citrus, a bit malty, fruity, refreshing. A Good Ale! 11/12/11/12/-/12
